WASHINGTON (BP) -- There's good news and bad news for Planned Parenthood.
The good news is the Obama administration continues to go out of its way to funnel money to the country's No. 1 abortion provider.
The bad news is Planned Parenthood can't stop scandals and negative reports from reaching at least some of the American public. For instance:
-- A 24-year-old woman died July 20 after undergoing an abortion at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Chicago, according to the CBS television affiliate in that city.
-- Sue Thayer, a former Planned Parenthood clinic director, has charged the abortion giant's Iowa affiliate with filing nearly 500,000 false Medicaid claims over a seven-year period, according to a federal lawsuit unsealed July 9.
-- The North Carolina legislature voted July 2 to override Gov. Bev Perdue's veto and defund Planned Parenthood and other private family planning providers.
-- Another investigation by the pro-life organization Live Action has shown Planned Parenthood employees in four states -- Hawaii, New York, North Carolina and Texas -- on undercover videos released in late May and June seeking to help women who indicated they wanted sex-selection abortions.
