American tax dollars have been proven to fund abortions but now an exhaustive study shows the money is coming from an unexpected source.
Planned Parenthood has denied that its use of tax dollars – which average a whopping half-billion dollars a year – are used for abortion or for promoting abortion. But a review by the Government Accountability Office found widespread taxpayer funding for abortion advocacy organizations – six of them.
Jim Sedlak of American Life League suggests there's a smoking gun in the report.
"The GAO reported that 75 percent of the money that goes to Planned Parenthood is not from Title 10, or Title 5 or Title 20, or any of the other programs that we usually talk about," Sedlak tells OneNewsNow.
Instead, 75 percent of the money is in Medicaid reimbursements.
U.S. Sen. David Vitter requested the GAO investigation in 2013 along with two members of the U.S. House.
Seventeen states use Medicaid to pay for abortions for any reason, which Sedlak says equates to taxpayers paying to abort the poor's unborn children.
In addition, Medicaid is not supposed to pay for family planning but Planned Parenthood has campaigned for states to obtain waivers. The pro-lifer says 28 states have waivers for "family planning" dollars.
"And they are pouring millions of dollars into the coffers of Planned Parenthood under these waiver programs that were never supposed to be part of Medicaid in the first place," Sedlak complains.
For those in Congress interested in defunding Planned Parenthood, one place to look is Medicaid, he says.
