American Life League: Planned Parenthood Scandals 'Widespread'
Date:3/28/2008

Jim Sedlak: "Allegations that Planned Parenthood affiliates in Florida have been falsifying their annual reports over the past three years show that what happened in California is not an isolated incident."

WASHINGTON, March 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- American Life League renewed its call for a national investigation of Planned Parenthood's practices today as news reports from Florida allege falsified annual reports.

"It's outrageous that the nation's largest abortion chain is receiving public funds at all," said Jim Sedlak, vice president of American Life League. "But with widespread scandals alleging fraud and false reporting practices, it is clear that Planned Parenthood should be completely cut off from taxpayer money."

Five Planned Parenthood clinics in Florida recently stopped seeing customers following allegations that the affiliates have been falsifying their annual reports. According to the Miami Herald, "the local nonprofit had a $3 million budget in 2005. More than $500,000 came from public funds. It's unclear how much is reportedly missing or unaccounted for."

"We called and wrote attorneys general throughout the nation asking them to investigate the reporting practices of local Planned Parenthoods when news broke about accusations that Planned Parenthood was defrauding the state of California," said Sedlak. "Allegations that Planned Parenthood affiliates in Florida have been falsifying their annual reports over the past three years show that what happened in California is not an isolated incident."

In early March, a federal whistleblower lawsuit filed under the federal False Claims Act was unsealed following a review from the U.S. attorney's office. The lawsuit, which was filed in 2005 by a former vice-president of Planned Parenthood-Los Angeles, alleges that nine Planned Parenthood affiliates in California defrauded state and federal taxpayers to the tune of at least $180 million.

In addition to the scandals in California and Florida, Planned Parenthood of Kansas is facing 107 criminal charges, including 23 felony counts of falsifying medical documents regarding late-term abortions.

"American Life League joins millions around the country who are calling for the end of taxpayer funds for Planned Parenthood," said Sedlak. "As more scandals come to light, we are confident that attorneys general in every state will direct their attention to Planned Parenthood affiliates near them as well."

American Life League was co-founded in 1979 by Judie Brown. It is the largest grassroots Catholic pro-life organization in the United States and is committed to the protection of all innocent human beings from the moment of creation to natural death.
