WASHINGTON, DC, June 20, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – ObamaCare enrollment begins October 1 and Planned Parenthood is already hard at work prepping its 750 facilities across the US to ensure access to the new taxpayer funds.
One of the leading advocates for the passage of the revolutionary bill which includes funding for abortion, Planned Parenthood is poised to reap the financial benefits of its passage.
Even without the boost from ObamaCare, Planned Parenthood receives 45% of its income by way of taxpayer dollars. Last year, that amount totaled $542.4 million.
Using a wide array of educational materials – from magnets to smart phone apps – the nation’s largest abortion chain will be educating its 3 million customers about benefits available under the new health care law, including “free” contraception, and how to enroll in the newly available insurance plans.
Some Planned Parenthood locations will even have “navigators”, who are paid using taxpayer dollars, to sit down with clients and guide them through the entire process of applying for health benefits and government subsidies for those plans.
“Planned Parenthood is among the long list of liberal organizations that are expected to receive taxpayer-funded navigator grants,” Rep. Diane Black told Politico.
“The navigator grants would further enable Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in America, to continue its misuse of taxpayer dollars to [supplement] their big abortion business.”
President Obama had asked Planned Parenthood to promote his health care law during a speech to the abortion giant in April.
"I'm here to ... ask for your help, because we need to get the word out," he told Planned Parenthood supporters gathered in Washington. "We need you to tell your patients, your friends, your neighbors, your family members what the health care law means for them."
"Make sure that they know that there are plans out there right now that cover the cost of contraception and preventative care free of charge," he said. "We've got to spread the word, particularly among women, particularly among young women, who are the ones who are most likely to benefit from these laws."
Last year, a congressional investigation into Planned Parenthood was launched after allegations of extensive fraud in nearly 20% of Planned Parenthood’s national affiliates. A 23-page report issued by the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) found upwards of $99 million in waste or possible fraud, including the illegal taxpayer funding of abortion and abortion-related procedures.
In 2011, Planned Parenthood committed 333,964 abortions for a profit of $173,661,280, which makes up 56.9% of income generated by clinic services.
