Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin: If Gov. Walker Investigates Us for Fraud, We'll Have to Close 




Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin (PPWI) is afraid. Their concern stems from an ongoing state investigation of family planning clinics, which has already uncovered $3.5 million in taxpayer dollars falsely billed to Medicaid for birth control services. PPWI admits that if they are audited, they will likely have to close their birth control clinics in the state.

According to the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism, PPWI's public policy director Nicole Safar called the audits "clinic-closing." 

In partnership with Alliance Defending Freedom, Pro-Life Wisconsin recently coordinated a massive open records request on PPWI through Wisconsin's Department of Health Services (DHS). The open records request revealed 26 DHS audits of PPWI between 2006 and 2012, uncovering $43,272.80 in over billing. All but the last audit were conducted and released under former Gov. Jim Doyle, a pro-abortion Democrat. 

"Those audits were very limited – in scope, in detail, in time frame," said PLW Legislative Director, Matt Sande, in a LifeSiteNews story. "DHS needs to do a comprehensive, thorough, and robust audit of all Medicaid family planning providers, especially Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin."

Day of Prayer for Life, Marriage and Family - This December, and especially on December 12th, the Feast Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe, people from all over North America and Latin America are asked to pray for Our Lady’s intercession with Her Son for the protection of Life, Marriage and Family, so much under attack in our world.

Almost 500 years ago, following Our Lady of Guadalupe’s appearance to Juan Diego, a new culture of life began to take hold, ending the horrible human sacrifice, including child sacrifice, practiced in Aztec Mexico. Now, in our own times, we ask Our Lady’s intercession to stop the terrible scourge of abortion which has caused the deaths of millions of babies, and gravely damaged their mothers and all society.
