Nothing small about abortion giant's business

At issue is the fact that $80 million in federal loans meant to protect payrolls for small businesses with fewer than 500 employees was granted to 37 Planned Parenthood affiliates. The abortion firm has 16,000 employees -- 600 in its headquarters alone.

Noah Brandt of Americans United for Life tells OneNewsNow the law explicitly barred loans from going to abortion organizations.

"The one procedure that Planned Parenthoods were opened for across the country was abortion," Brandt notes. "You would pass these Planned Parenthoods, and they would have signs saying, 'Closed except for abortion.' That is the one service that they would offer no matter what is going on."

The pro-lifer adds that the $80 million Planned Parenthood snagged would have been helpful to numerous small businesses throughout the country.

"Thousands of companies across the country are struggling to keep people on payroll and struggling to get through this unprecedented time, and so there's no reason that the federal government needs to be prioritizing Planned Parenthood's wish list," Brandt insists. "Instead, Planned Parenthood needs to give back that money."

The abortion giant, however, is refusing to do that, so some members of Congress want to hear their justification for holding on to dollars they were never supposed to get.
