Today, Congressman Roger Marshall, M.D., introduced H.R. 7792, The Abortion Provider Loan Elimination Act, which would prohibit abortion providers from receiving funds through the Paycheck Protection Program and initiate an investigation into how Planned Parenthood illegally received $80 million through the program during the height of the coronavirus crisis. The legislation is supported by 20 members of Congress and endorsed by Susan B. Anthony List, National Right to Life Committee, and Family Research Council. Following the bill's introduction, Congressman Marshall issued the following statement:
"Like most pro-life Americans, I was outraged to learn Planned Parenthood illegally obtained tens of millions of dollars through the Paycheck Protection Program," said Rep. Marshall. "Federal funds should never go to abortion providers, especially during a pandemic. As an OB/GYN who's delivered over 5,000 babies, I am proud to stand alongside the pro-life community in introducing this bill which will ensure abortion providers cannot take advantage of our hard earned tax dollars during a pandemic, and investigate how they were able to do so in the first place."
