Planned Parenthood’s mentality that abortion trumps all, including the law, has once again been exposed for the world to see. Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood clinic director turned pro-life advocate, details just how far she witnessed Planned Parenthood was willing to go to enrich its abortion empire – what she contends was Planned Parenthood openly committing fraud. She wrote:
“I remember the meeting like it was yesterday. All of the clinic directors assembled in the main conference room. Sitting in a sort of squared-circle facing each other.
We were being told that we had all been guilty of fraudulent billing to the state and federal government. We didn’t even know that we had been participating in the fraud. We were all sitting there in silence. What did this mean? Were we in trouble? Could we potentially get in trouble? So, I broke the silence. I simply asked, “What are we going to do about the money we shouldn’t have received?” The response, “We are going to hope we don’t get caught.” But…”What if we do get caught? Can we be held responsible?” She then went into a long story about a similar situation she had once been in at a clinic where she once worked. The moral of the story was, yes, we could all be held responsible…but not to worry, “we” wouldn’t get caught.
A couple years later, I left Planned Parenthood. I talked to several attorneys about that meeting. I knew what I had been involved in was wrong, and I knew Planned Parenthood needed to be held accountable. That meeting had nothing to do with pro-life or pro-choice issues; this was about our tax dollars and fiscal responsibility.”
It’s an all too familiar story. Fortunately, she is not the only former Planned Parenthood employee willing stand up for what is right.
