Life Links 11/1/10

Planned Parenthood of the Inland Northwest has agreed to pay $345,000 back to the state of Washington after an audit revealed that Medicaid had overpaid (likely based on over billing) Planned Parenthood more than half a million dollars over 3 years.
The original audit estimated the improper payments at $629,143 over a 3-year period, and Planned Parenthood appealed. The settlement implied no admission of incorrect billing, documentation or payment.

The findings were based on 333 procedures performed from March 2004 to February 2007.

At First Things, Matthew Schmitz notes that the National Women's Law Center, a pro-abort group, has posted an ad for a new position to influence the "‘implementation of the new health care law' in order to advance ‘reproductive rights.'"

Donald Hertz has been sentenced to five years probation for threatening the family of abortionist Warren Hern via telephone.

The Daily Mail has an article on a 40 Days for Life protest in England. Author Jane Fryer gets a lot wrong but it's interesting how the Brits apparently think the American prolife movement is violent and how some individuals in Britain are adopting some tactics used by American prolife groups.
