TRANSCRIPT

There are growing calls to investigate Planned Parenthood for taking money meant for small businesses.

Thirty-seven Planned Parenthood affiliates received a total of $80 million in loans earlier this year from the Small Business Administration (SBA). 

The SBA has asked Planned Parenthood to return the money. 

Now, Republican senators are calling for an investigation into how the abortion giant got the money in the first place.

In a May 21st letter to U.S. Attorney General (AG) William Barr, the senators stated: "It seems clear that Planned Parenthood knew that it was ineligible for the small business loans. ... As you know, fraudulent loan applications can trigger both civil and criminal penalties."

The letter to the AG was signed by 27 GOP senators, including Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Mitch McConnell of Kentucky — to name a few.

Pro-lifers have spoken out as well. American Life League vice president Jim Sedlak commented to Church Militant: "It is an organization that kills God's children and brags about it. It is no surprise that it would lie and cheat and steal to fill its coffers with taxpayer funds."

For years, pro-lifers and others have called on the government to defund Planned Parenthood — owing to its murder of unborn babies and its illegal sales of aborted babies' body parts.
