Good News? Texas officials raid Planned Barrenhood abortuaries October 22, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in Abortion, asshatery, disaster, error, horror, scandals, secularism, sexual depravity, sickness, Society, unadulterated evil.
Each of the three Planned Butcherhood facilities raided today is an abortuary. Texas law enforcement officials are apparently looking for evidence that Planned Barrenhood has diverted Medicaid funds to pay for abortions. I can tell you, this happens ALL THE TIME. I have personally had dozens of people seeking abortions tell me that the cost of the abortion was no problem, as Medicaid was paying for it. Who knows how well Banned Parenthood has been able to bury this data, but Abby Johnson thinks they may face serious problems as a result of these raids:
Investigators from the state of Texas served subpoenas at three Planned Parenthood facilities to determine whether their employees are guilty of defrauding the state’s Medicaid program, according to media reports.
Officials from the Office of Inspector General walked into Planned Parenthood abortion facilities in San Antonio, Houston, and Dallas this morning and demanded the offices turn over employee and patient records for inspection, Planned Parenthood officials said…..
But some familiar with the investigation told media outlets that the inspectors were investigating charges that the facilities illegally used Medicaid money to fund abortions……
……Inspectors reportedly asked for medical forms from recent patients to determine the reason for their visits, before comparing those records to Planned Parenthood’s invoices to Medicaid.
“The breadth and depth of what was requested this morning was unprecedented,” Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas’ vice president for community affairs, Sarah Wheat, told the Austin Statesman. [In other words…….”WAAAHHH!!!!”]
The move comes just three days after HHSC officials announced plans for Texas to remove Planned Parenthood from its Medicaid program. A letter written Monday by Inspector General Stuart Bowen Jr. cited undercover video recordings by the Center for Medical Progress that show Planned Parenthood agreeing to alter its abortion technique to maximize the number of body parts harvested and to receive payments.
The inspector also mentioned a “prima facie case of fraud.”
Planned Parenthood officials denied any wrongdoing. “Representatives from the Texas Office of Inspector General showed up at Planned Parenthood health centers in Houston, Dallas and San Antonio looking for an excuse to take health care away from thousands of women and men who rely on Planned Parenthood for preventive care — but what they will see is professional, compassionate and quality health care,” said Yvonne Gutierrez, the executive director of Planned Parenthood Texas Votes, in a statement. “Despite their efforts to distort the truth, health care — no matter what — is what happens at Planned Parenthood.” [Remember, leftists always lie, and leftists always project. Leftists equate baby murder with “health care.” We’ve seen rhetoric from the American left for several years now that basically devolves all women’s health care down to contraception and baby murder. So, anything that threatens abortion becomes a “threat to women’s health.” And no, the facilities raided are all abortuaries where nothing happens but baby slaughter. Planned Barrenhood in DFW area has completely changed their operating procedures so that their two baby abattoirs are as used as efficiently as possible.]
……Allegations that Planned Parenthood defrauds taxpayers – in Texas and around the country – are nothing new. In 2013, Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast (PPGC) paid $4.3 million to settle allegations of Medicaid fraud, refunding the Texas state government and the Obama administration. There are also allegations that Planned Parenthood bilked Texan taxpayers for a decade by performing unnecessary medical procedures on incarcerated teenagers……..
…..The Alliance Defending Freedom recently released a report that “improper practices” fleeced taxpayers nationwide out of $129.7 million at “a minimum.”…….[Oh, so it seems there just MIGHT be something to fraud charges against Planned Butcherhood, after all!!!]
Any organization so lost as to spend all their time looking for ways to maximize profit from the murder of babies is not going to have many scruples about ripping off taxpayers for a few tens or hundreds of millions of dollars. I think that goes without saying.
I don’t know about nationally, but I think there is at least a somewhat reasonable chance that we may see Planned Barrenhood driven from this state in the next 5 or 10 years. If this kind of pressure can continue to be applied, I think eventually they’ll be beaten.
