New GAO Report Documents $1.6 Billion in Taxpayer Money to PPFA

We encourage you to use these numbers in your local fights against the various PPFA affiliates, as well as national efforts to end Planned Parenthood funding.

In a press statement released on January 25, 2021, Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (MO-04), Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), and Congressman Chris Smith (NJ-04) responded to the public release of a Government Accountability Office (GAO) report which revealed that over the course of three years (FY2016-FY2018) nearly $2 billion in taxpayer dollars went to three abortion groups: Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), Marie Stopes International (MSI), and International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF).

PPFA, the operator of the United States’ largest abortion chain, received approximately $1.6 billion in government funding over the three-year period reviewed. Of this amount, approximately $304 million came through federal grants and cooperative agreements, while the majority ($1.3 billion) was in the form of Medicaid and other reimbursements. Current federal law prohibits federal funding of abortions but has no limitation on the funding of organizations that kill babies through abortion.

Money paid to Planned Parenthood was actually given to its affiliates. We provide you here with the list, taken from the GAO report, of total Medicaid funds received by each of 59 affiliates of PPFA with totals (in $ millions) from 2016-2018:

Planned Parenthood Mar Monte $200.47

Total Medicaid payments to PPFA affiliates from 2016-2018: $1,288.87 million

*These five affiliates merged in 2020 to become Planned Parenthood of Greater New York. Their combined Medicaid funding is $94.57 million, which puts PPGNY in fifth place on the above list.

We encourage you to use these numbers in your local fights against the various PPFA affiliates, as well as national efforts to end Planned Parenthood funding. While, in most states, the money PP receives from Medicaid is the largest single source of its taxpayer funding, that is not true in California.

California has two state-funded programs—Medi-Cal Managed Care and Family PACT—that, in some cases, give affiliates more than the federal government. Planned Parenthood Mar Monte, for example, is headquartered in San Jose, CA, and its 2018 Federal Form 990 reports taxpayer income of:

Medi-Cal Managed Care – $34,546,728
Family PACT – $26,617,377
Medi-Cal/Medicaid – $11,653,665

We hope all this information will be helpful to you as we work to cause such discontent with Planned Parenthood that it will have no choice but to close down and get out of town.
