    DES MOINES, Iowa – One of Planned Parenthood’s former clinic managers has turned whistle blower, claiming that the abortion provider’s Heartland branch has scammed American taxpayers by filing nearly 500,000 fraudulent Medicaid claims over 10 years, netting the organization an illicit $28 million.

    Sue Thayer, former manager of Iowa’s Storm Lake and LeMars Planned Parenthood clinics, has sued the organization under both federal and Iowa False Claims Acts, alleging that Planned Parenthood knowingly committed Medicaid fraud from 2002 to 2009 by seeking improper and even illegal reimbursements from Iowa Medicaid Enterprise and the Iowa Family Planning Network.

    According to the lawsuit, originally filed in March of last year but made public just this week, Planned Parenthood submitted “repeated false, fraudulent, and/or ineligible claims for reimbursements” to Medicaid.

    Thayer’s attorneys claim that if she prevails in the lawsuit, Planned Parenthood could be ordered to pay the United States and Iowa as much as $5.5 billion in False Claims Act damages and penalties.

    DES MOINES, Iowa – One of Planned Parenthood’s former clinic managers has turned whistle blower, claiming that the abortion provider’s Heartland branch has scammed American taxpayers by filing nearly 500,000 fraudulent Medicaid claims over 10 years, netting the organization an illicit $28 million.

    Sue Thayer, former manager of Iowa’s Storm Lake and LeMars Planned Parenthood clinics, has sued the organization under both federal and Iowa False Claims Acts, alleging that Planned Parenthood knowingly committed Medicaid fraud from 2002 to 2009 by seeking improper and even illegal reimbursements from Iowa Medicaid Enterprise and the Iowa Family Planning Network.

    According to the lawsuit, originally filed in March of last year but made public just this week, Planned Parenthood submitted “repeated false, fraudulent, and/or ineligible claims for reimbursements” to Medicaid.

    Thayer’s attorneys claim that if she prevails in the lawsuit, Planned Parenthood could be ordered to pay the United States and Iowa as much as $5.5 billion in False Claims Act damages and penalties.

    “Americans really deserve to know if their hard-earned tax dollars are being funneled to groups that are misusing [them],” said Senior Counsel Michael J. Norton, a former United States attorney working with Alliance Defending Freedom to represent Thayer. “People may disagree on their views about abortion, but everyone can agree that Planned Parenthood must play by the same rules as everyone else. It is not entitled to any public funds, especially if it is defrauding Medicaid and the American taxpayer.”

    The lawsuit claims that Planned Parenthood’s “C-Mail” scam began by automatically sending a year’s supply of birth control pills to women who came into one of the organization’s clinics. The pills were usually sent without a physician’s order, often dispensed to women “at levels not medically reasonable or necessary … constituting ‘abuse or overuse’” and were even shipped without the patient’s consent or foreknowledge.

    Planned Parenthood then billed Medicaid to the tune of $26.32 for each month’s worth of pills, the lawsuit claims, even though the cost to the clinics was only $2.98.

    Thayer claims the scam proved to be so profitable Planned Parenthood even held competitions among its clinics to see which of them could enroll the most women in the “C-Mail” program.

    Furthermore, the lawsuit claims, the U.S. Postal Service sometimes returned the packages to Planned Parenthood, but instead of crediting Medicaid or destroying the returned pills, the clinics resold the same birth control pills and billed Medicaid twice for the same medication.

    A second claim within the lawsuit alleges that though both Iowa and federal law bar taxpayer funds from reimbursing abortion services, Planned Parenthood found a way to sidestep the restriction.

    The lawsuit claims rather than billing Medicaid for abortions directly – a clear violation of the law – Planned Parenthood “fragmented” the patients’ bills so it could charge Medicaid for everything the clinic did around and related to the abortion: “including, without limitation, office visits, ultrasounds, Rh factor tests, lab work, general counseling and abortion aftercare, all of which were, when provided, integral to and/or related to surgical and medical abortion procedures.”

    Thayer says then Planned Parenthood – its profit margin bolstered by the Medicaid payments for procedures surrounding abortions – reduced the cost of abortions to its patients.

    “As a result,” the lawsuit concludes, “abortions provided by Planned Parenthood were subsidized by public funds.”

    Yet a third claim in the lawsuit alleges that Planned Parenthood asked its Medicaid patients to “donate” to the organization half the cost of their bill, a request with which many patients complied. But then, the lawsuit says, Planned Parenthood reported the money as a “voluntary donation” and still billed Medicaid for the full amount of the patient’s care.

    “In effect,” Thayer’s attorneys summarize, “Planned Parenthood both falsely billed Medicaid and took money from low-income women by getting them to pay for services Medicaid was intended to cover in full.”

    Planned Parenthood of the Heartland President Jill June released a statement calling the lawsuit part of a “pattern of harassment” and boasting that neither U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder nor Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller – both Democrats – have decided to prosecute the case.

    “The extreme organization that former employee Sue Thayer has partnered with has a mission to take down Planned Parenthood,” June said of Alliance Defending Freedom. “Planned Parenthood has various safe guards and confidential resources in place for all employees with questions or concerns. It wasn’t until employment was ended that Thayer partnered with this extreme group against Planned Parenthood, that she began releasing mistruths about our organization.”

    Thayer, however, has said publicly that she views her lawsuit as “an important piece in the nationwide effort to shed light on the darkness and deception surrounding America’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood. It seems that God can use all those years that I spent working at Planned Parenthood for His good.”

    The lawsuit Thayer v. Planned Parenthood of the Heartland is pending in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Iowa. Des Moines attorney J. Russell Hixson, an allied attorney with Alliance Defending Freedom, is assisting with the case.

    Alliance Defending Freedom, formerly known as the Alliance Defense Fund, is a coalition of 300 organizations and 2,200 attorneys that explains its mission is to “to keep the door open for the spread of the gospel by transforming the legal system and advocating for religious liberty, the sanctity of life, and marriage and family.”

    I have no clue. I am not black. I know the population is expanding so rapidly I don't think planned parenthood, or birth control, or sex education is doing good at all that I support criminalizing birth control pills, viagra and all other sexual stimulants. Let's see what plain old "responsible sex" can do. It's worked in the past. It'll also cut down on pornography and, I'm sure, drugs too. Since none of those programs are working either.

    No.....Thank goodness, such evil should never succeed. Planned Parenthood's original intent was to be an abortion mill for so-called less desirables" (blacks, Hispanics and etc.) according to Supreme court justice Ginsberg. This was the democrat's goal. And the reason these facilities are located, nearly exclusively, in low income areas. To prey on races other than white. But it has resulted in much more white infant murders. Seems the religious foundation's are stronger in Blacks and Hispanics. So their aversion to abortion is stronger, than the spiritually deficient white liberals. So the plan seems to have backfired. More white babies are being killed. Planned parenthood should be closed down. The scant attention to so-called family planning is merely a front for an abortion mill.

    Ginsberg never said that and you cant reference it either.

    The original intent of planned parenthood was to provide pre & post natal care. Yes that includes abortion. The funny thing is abortion is more prevalent in the white and hindi culture that black and hispanic. 60% of all abortions are in those communities since 1994.


    >> So the plan seems to have backfired. More white babies are being killed. Planned parenthood should be closed down. The scant attention to so-called family planning is merely a front for an abortion mill. <<

    It should be closed down because they are killing more white kids now?
    or
    White kids are more valuable than minority kids?
    or
    Blacks and hispanics are undesirable?

    And then you want someone to believe that your disagreement with POTUS is policy driven. Really? hahahahahaha

    You racist are not clever at all. Everyone can see what your disagreement is. HE's BLAAAAAAACK!!!!! STOP HIM BEFORE HE DEVALUES WHITES OR GETS EVERY NON WHITE TO AN EVEN PLAYING FIELD.

    It is against the law for any hospital to turn a person away from receiving treatment, whether they can pay or not. That sign is mandatorily posted in every Emergency room in the country.

    So if she went to an emergency room they had to treat her by Federal Law. Including delivery, and appropriate care for the newborn and Mother both.

    So I suspect there may be a bit more to the story than you have told.

    I know because a friend of mine got a Quad Bypass Surgery when he was uemployed and had no medical insurance. He went to ER, and they immediately sent him for the life saving Surgery. Title X I believe it was that took care of the bill, not sure which program it was.

    He did get billed for and paid for the PT and Medications etc after he was discharged from the Hospital and back on his feet. And even that they allowed to slide until he was back to work.

    they treated her symptoms, not the heart condition.

    I've had other people I know not turned away outright but told there was, for instance, an eight hour wait (no, nothing serious, just a cancer patient throwing up blood)

    You may *think* those laws mean something, doesn't mean they do, especially if you are employed and make 100 bucks or so too much to qualify for help.

    It is no accident that Planned Parenthood has over 80% of it's facilities located in Black, and Hispanic Neighborhoods. Margaret Sanger made her position very clear, her agenda was not about population control in general, rather population control of people of color same as Chancellor Hitler. Also it's very interesting that as the population of people of color rises in America there's more and more of a move to cut off aid for poor people in America.

    Monogamy is not natural for humans, that's in why every society that has monogamy, and the monetary system (those 2 go hand, and hand, and those 2 comprise state systems), half of the sheets of paper called laws are for regulating sex, the other half are for regulating money.

    So another question this raises for me is, was monogamy started in western, and arabic countries to segregate the human population by skin pigmentation, to limit as much as possible people of different pigments having sex, and having children, mixed children?

    According to Dr. Francis Cress Welsing who's a black female psychiatrist who has written about this, the reason the global white supremacy system was formed was out of fear of genetic annihilation. She believes white or pink pigmented people are engaging in genetic warfare with people of brown, red, and yellow pigments for the sake of their genetic survival.

    Based on what I have gathered in my research, I am not prepared to rule out her theory.

    Actually we can make a case that the population increase has occurred because of monogamy because there's no competition for sperms. Humans both male, and female are not biologically wired for monogamy that's why monogamy causes all the problems it does in society.

    If a woman has say 19 different men she's active with which she should, it's good, it's healthy, it's natural for her, and the men, that's 19 competing sperms for the egg, sperms create spermicide to try to kill off competing sperms, and that combined with her defense system that kills of most sperms, it's a very hostile environment for sperms, and very seldom will one reach the egg.

    That's why polygamy and polyamory (Polygamy means many sex partners, polyamory means many loves) are the most sustainable social practice, let men, and women be free to act on their natural biological drive. There will be no need to regulate people because there will be no sexual scarcity, and no pent up frustration from not getting that physical need fulfilled.

    Back to my point, if monogamy came natural for humans, than there would be no need for sperms to create spermicide to try to kill competing sperms because there would be no competing sperms, and married couples would never have other sex partners on the side, and upon marriage on...

    The same concept that applies to sex applies to everything, food, housing, transportation, energy, medical, if we properly manage the system to ensure there's no scarcity in the environment, than we don't have to worry about how people will behave because humans only engage problematic behavior when there's scarcity in one's environment.
