Hour A, Segment 1

Blowing the whistle on Planned Parenthood

Officials involved in Benghazi scandal reinstated

Jim Henry is a reporter for The World and Everything in It.

Last year, Planned Parenthood performed 330,000 abortions in America, and received over a half billion dollars in taxpayer funding. But the organization’s bottom line took a hit late last week as news broke that the nation’s largest abortion provider had agreed to pay between 4 and 5 million dollars to settle a fraud suit brought by a whistleblower.

Kent Covington is a senior correspondent for The World and Everything in It

The State Department reinstated four officials suspended late last year after security failures at a U.S. consulate led to deaths of four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya.
