|'Planned Parenthood Missing Millions'|

A recent report by the United States' Government Accountabilty Office (GAO) on federal tax funds into Planned Parenthood and similar organizations raises more questions than it answers about the country's largest abortion chain.
The Planned Parenthood Federation of Americas' (PPFA) audit shows the organization spent just $657.1 million between 2002 and 2008 from federal government grants and programs that the abortion behemoth's own annual report show that it took in $2.3 billion from government grants and programs during the same time period."
This appear not to be just pocket change, so why the discepancy?
The audit report (the first of its kind since 2002) was released in respnse to a request from 31 U.S. senators and representatives and in atmosphere with increasing hostility to abortion. Not unexpectantly, then its discoveries are igniting an outcry to defund Planned Parenthood.
At least five nationwide polls have confirmed that a majority of Americans support pro-life views since 2009.
According to the Washington Times, "someone, then, needs to explain to all those people why $2.3 billion in tax dollars have been doled out to an organization that admits to systematically having killed 1.8 million pre-born babies between 2002 and 2008 and then reports it only $657.1 million in federal dollars?"
Did Planned Parenthood manage to tuck away megamillions of our tax dollars, seemingly unrecognized? Or is that much of its government funding coming from sources other than the federal government? Or is there a difficulty with the method Planned Parenthood is reporting its expenditure of our federal cash?
