Planned Parenthood of Iowa in Legal Trouble

Many people ask me why Planned Parenthood is so flush with money.  In some cases the evidence shows they steal it.  According to a former long-term employee, Planned Parenthood in Iowa purchases a packet of birth control pills for under three dollars.  They turn around and bill Medicaid thirty-five dollars and get reimbursed about twenty-six.  If a woman returns a packet of pills, Planned Parenthood sells it to someone else without crediting the first woman’s account.  Plus they ask Medicaid clients to “donate” ten dollars for each packet of pills.  There’s more.  They ask Medicaid clients to pay half of the costs of other services knowing Medicaid reimburses it all anyway.  A lawsuit may mean this fleecing of poor women and the government will soon catch up with them.
