Under Investigation

The non-partisan Government Accountability Office (GAO) will investigate the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the International Planned Parenthood Federation, the Population Council, the Guttmacher Institute, Advocates for Youth, and the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States.  The investigation will focus on the groups’ utilization of public funding to the private organizations.

The GAO probe was prompted, at least in part, by a request from Members of Congress.  The request letter is reproduced below.
