Joe Biden Gives Planned Parenthood $10 Million Meant to Help Struggling Small Businesses

Joe Biden’s administration just gave $10 million to a New York Planned Parenthood from a depleted fund established to help struggling small businesses recover from the pandemic.

Planned Parenthood is a billion-dollar abortion chain that does about 40 percent of all abortions in the U.S. It is not a small business, and it is not supposed to qualify for the Paycheck Protection Program, a COVID-19 relief fund for small businesses. Yet, Planned Parenthood applied for and received at least $80 million through the program in the past year.

The $10 million to Planned Parenthood of Greater New York is just the latest example.

Live Action News reports Concerned Women for America discovered Biden’s gift to the abortion industry just a day after his administration closed the program.

“Biden’s @SBAgov closed the Paycheck Protection Program yesterday for running out of $$ – but not before $10 Million went to Planned Parenthood NY,” the pro-life organization wrote on Twitter last week. “One wonders how many businesses could have stayed open instead with that cash.”

Penny Nance, president and CEO of Concerned Women for America, told Live Action that Planned Parenthood has received at least $85 million through the PPP by exploiting loopholes.

“Despite congressional regulations that were intended to disqualify them, Big Abortion has found a way to make the American people complicit in their nefarious dealings,” Nance said. “This from a company which reported a record number of abortions in its last report, where they announced they made $69.7 million in profits. This is obscene by any reasonable measure and Congress should demand an immediate investigation.”

In May of 2020, news broke that Planned Parenthood took more than $80 million in coronavirus aid meant for struggling small businesses. Businesses and non-profits with more than 500 employees are not eligible for the PPP funds, and Planned Parenthood employs more than that. However, it exploited a loophole by applying through local affiliates that employ fewer than 500 people.

Planned Parenthood’s latest annual report, which is publicly available online, lists more than 354,000 abortions. This represents about 40 percent of all abortions in the U.S.

The abortion chain has been accused repeatedly of unethical and illegal activities, including selling aborted baby body partsbotching abortions that killed womencovering up the sexual abuse of minorsdiscriminating against pregnant and minority employees, exploiting young girls by selling cross-sex hormones and more.
