Letter from Former Planned Parenthood Employees

A group of former Planned Parenthood employees has written to the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations for the Energy and Commerce Committee.  In their letter they state of their willingness to testify regarding illegalities they have knowledge of regarding Planned Parenthood's use of public funds and abortion.  A portion of the letter reads as follows:
"It is a matter of public record that the affiliates of PPFA and its national headquarters receive roughly $1 million per day in federal-state support, for a total of $1 billion or more in any three-year period. This alone would merit close government attention as to whether or not these funds are being spent appropriately and, specifically, in keeping with the federal law which stipulates that none of these funds should be made available to a program in which abortion is used as a means of family planning. We can state categorically, from personal experience, that abortion is indeed deployed as a means of family planning according to the mission of the organization for which we once worked."
One of the signers is Abby Johnson who is the author of Unplanned: The Dramatic True Story of a Former Planned Parenthood Leader's Eye-Opening Journey Across the Life Line.
