Texas was right to secede--from Planned Parenthood. Hello, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. America's abortion business isn't just lying to women--it's lying to the government! Only this time, Planned Parenthood admitted it. As part of a legal settlement, Cecile Richards's group agreed to repay the $1.4 million it stole from taxpayers. For years, the organization was overbilling the government for bogus services it never provided. According to the suit, clinics submitted as many as 84,000 fraudulent claims. "Americans deserve to know if their hard-earned tax money is being funneled to groups that are misusing it," said ADF. "These programs are designed to help the poor, but Planned Parenthood uses taxpayer dollars to pad its bottom line..." Unfortunately, the Texas scam is only part of a larger Planned Parenthood con game across America. It's time for Congress to defund the criminals at Planned Parenthood. Their war on women was a hoax--but the war on taxpayers is not.
