Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton (R) is leading a congressional inquiry into why the Small Business Administration (SBA) has not investigated why Planned Parenthood, the abortion conglomerate that employs 16,000 people, was allowed to illegally obtain loans from a fund specifically established to help small businesses keep their employees on the payroll.

Jim Sedlak of the American Life League tells One News Now it shows how the government is wedded to Planned Parenthood.

"If they can show even in one case Planned Parenthood willfully did not obey the law, they will become ineligible for all government funding," Sedlak notes. "That's the way the law is written. If you cheat 'em once, then that's it; you don't get any more government money."

Sedlak, Jim (American Life League)The abortion giant already pockets more than a half billion dollars from the federal government annually, so given the magnitude of its income, Planned Parenthood could write SBA a refund check.

"The [financial reports] released last year show they made $100 million in profit. The year before that -- $200 million in profit," Sedlak reports. "The money that they're talking about with the Payroll Protection Program is somewhere around $80 million to $140 million. That would come out of their profit. They wouldn't even have to dip into their operating budget whatsoever."

The pro-lifer adds that Planned Parenthood currently has more than $1.6 trillion in the bank.
