The coronavirus has turned into a pretext for bad Big Government policy.
Democrats are using the pandemic to ram through their socialist agenda.
And Americans are outraged after leftists used the coronavirus to fund abortion in this disgusting way.
The United States is now up to 1.6 million confirmed cases of the coronavirus with around 96,000 deaths.
The virus triggered an unprecedented shutdown of the U.S. economy, which has left 39 million Americans unemployed.
In response to the shutdown, Congress passed a massive spending bill that doled out money to corporations, small businesses, and individual taxpayers.
But the abortion mill Planned Parenthood exploited the coronavirus to illegally receive a small business loan.
A total of 37 Planned Parenthood facilities received $80 million in funding that they weren’t supposed to receive.
Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse (R) is calling for an investigation into how the huge blunder was made.
Sasse said, “Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion business, tried to defraud taxpayers during the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression…The Paycheck Protection Program is supposed to be a lifeline for small businesses, not a slush fund for Big Abortion. The administration needs to reclaim that money and fire the bureaucrats who signed off on this scam.”
Planned Parenthood well exceeds the threshold for small business status and has over half a billion dollars in assets.
Leftists worship abortion, so they would never let Planned Parenthood go belly up.
But the idea of Planned Parenthood applying for a small business loan is ridiculous.
Missouri Senator Josh Hawley also had strong words for Planned Parenthood, writing, “The money needs to be recovered and if anybody knowingly falsified applications, they need to be prosecuted.”
The Small Business Admission is currently looking into the matter and determining if any Planned Parenthood affiliates lied on their loan application.
Planned Parenthood already turned down $60 million in federal funding when they refused to stop performing abortions.
Abby Johnson, a former top employee at Planned Parenthood who became a pro-life advocate, said that her job at the clinic was to upsell girls and women into getting abortions, and that service was never free or discounted.
In an ironic way, Planned Parenthood’s small business loan application exposes them as an abortion business and not the women’s healthcare clinic they purport to be.
Will Planned Parenthood be forced to give back the money?
