Seven former employees of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) sent a letter offering their help to a congressional committee investigating the organization for misuse of federal funds and other crimes, WORLD News Service reports. In September, Florida Rep. Cliff Stearns wrote PPFA president Cecile Richards, demanding documentation of how the group makes sure the $1 million a day it receives in federal funds -- which by law cannot be used to support abortion -- is not mixed with with funding from other sources, as well as how employees go about detecting and reporting sexual crimes against women, such as trafficking, coercion or statutory rape. The seven former officers and employees from Massachusetts to California said they all had personal experience and knowledge of PPFA breaking federal laws concerning those issues. "The extent of these problems ... is not fully understood by the American people, who are underwriting the growth of Planned Parenthood and its potent outreach to the young and the poor," they wrote.
