Dear Rep. Cliff Stearns,
Thank you for your efforts to begin an investigation of the Planned Parenthood abortion business. As taxpayers, we are very concerned about having our tax dollars go towards an organization that has been rocked by scandal and is the largest abortion provider in the United States.
We understand that Planned Parenthood has been accused of abuses ranging from financial disparities to its compliance with federal laws and regulations on taxpayer funding to concerns that it is covering up potential cases of sex trafficking and statutory rape. Congressman Stearns, you are right to head up an investigation of these very serious concerns.
We are disappointed that your efforts to investigate these issues are facing opposition from Planned Parenthood and its supporters in Congress, like Reps. Henry Waxman and Diana DeGette, who are working aggressively to halt your probe. Please stand up to these efforts to silence your investigation.
We ask that you stand strong in your effort to make Planned Parenthood comply with your requests for documents related to its financial dealings, use of taxpayer funds, and how it reports on teenage girls who are victimized by sex traffickers and sexual abusers. Do not let them back down in furnishing these documents to Congress so the American people can know about the actions of this organization that receives $363 million in taxpayer dollars every year.
Thank you for holding this abortion business accountable.
