    Jill Stanek at LifeNews: spoke with Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Michael Norton about this apparent PP hustle. He said if it is true that PP isn’t providing full disclosure before the onset of one’s abortion in order to pull her in so deep financially she feels she can’t back out, then PP may be violating a state health standard and may also be liable for medical malpractice, which is suable. “Women who have been tricked and coerced to complete the abortion procedure after being baited to begin the process may have claims of fraud, failure to provide adequate informed consent, reckless endangerment, and pain and suffering,” said Norton. “In addition, Planned Parenthood may be committing both civil and criminal violations.”

Webcam abortions in Iowa banned by the Iowa Board of Medicine

    Townhall: Michael Norton, Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel, commends the Board for standing up and putting the safety of women over the profits of Planned Parenthood: Planned Parenthood and other abortionists should be accountable to basic health and medical standards. That at least includes a licensed professional personally meeting with women who are considering such a serious and potentially life-altering act. That’s why we commend the Iowa Board of Medicine for caring more about the health and safety of mothers than about the profits Planned Parenthood obtains through ‘webcam’ abortions. Chemical abortions pose serious health risks to women, so their care should not be taken lightly. No matter where people stand on abortion, all should be able to agree on that.

“Planned Parenthood’s publicly-funded, billion-dollar abortion empire has to play by the same rules as everyone else”

Planned Parenthood investigation launched | Tom Strode of BP at BRNow

    Tom Strode of Baptist Press at BRNow: The settlement brought to at least $12.5 million the amount of “waste, abuse and ‘fraudulent overbilling’ of taxpayers” by Planned Parenthood affiliates in publicly revealed audits, according to the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF). ADF has charged Planned Parenthood with misusing millions of dollars in government funds in a report to Congress.

    Other ADF lawsuits contend Planned Parenthood affiliates have filed fraudulent claims for far more in government money. Its suit against Planned Parenthood of the Heartland – based in Des Moines, Iowa – alleges the organization filed nearly 500,000 false Medicaid claims and received nearly $28 million. Its legal action against Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest, headquartered in Seattle, Wash., says damages could be more than $370 million from fraudulent claims. ADF Senior Counsel Michael Norton called the settlement in the PPGC case “merely the tip of the iceberg.” Planned Parenthood “uses taxpayer dollars to pad its bottom line with little regard for the health of women,” he said. “[It] has been improperly reimbursed by millions of taxpayer dollars over the years.”

GAO to Audit Planned Parenthood, Abortion Providers That Receive Taxpayer Funding

    Christian Post: Michael J. Norton, senior counsel for Alliance Defending Freedom, which has filed lawsuits against Planned Parenthood, told the CP on Wednesday that the organization has, during the past few years, released reports to Congress that have identified waste, abuse and potential fraud by Planned Parenthood, state family programs and other organizations, as well as potential fraud by Planned Parenthood affiliates relating to grants from Susan G. Komen for the Cure. “We have been focusing on Planned Parenthood’s waste, abuse and potential fraud, and to identify Planned Parenthood as significantly taking advantage of well-funded, poorly addressed family planning programs in particular,” Norton said. “Audits and other reviews of Planned Parenthood affiliates’ financial data and practices – as well as 45 audits of state family planning programs and one audit of a family planning organization – found more than $108 million in waste, abuse and potential fraud. Taxpayer money is only supposed to be used responsibly and for the common good.”

    Christian News: Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Michael Norton said in a press release following the announcement that the closing of these three Texas facilities is an encouraging development, but more work still needs to be done. “Planned Parenthood is more concerned with using American taxpayers’ dollars to pad its bottom line than providing competent healthcare to women,” he stated. “Although Planned Parenthood blames budget cuts for its decision to close down three of its Texas abortion clinics, … Planned Parenthood’s waste, abuse and potential frauds involving taxpayer funds should have shut it down long ago. We will continue to hold Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast and all other Planned Parenthood affiliates accountable for its fraudulent use of taxpayer dollars and hope that even more abortion clinics will soon close.”
