According to data from the Small Business Administration (SBA) reported by the group Secular Pro-Life, abortion businesses received more than $3.5 million in loans from the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), a federal program set up in March to provide emergency loans to small businesses and non-profits.
These recipients included women's health clinics and centers from around the country such as the Washington chain Feminist Women's Health Center which received a $443,321 loan, Atlanta Women's Medical Center which received a $211,864 loan, and the West Alabama Women's Center in Tuscaloosa, recipient of a $121,500 loan.
In addition, pro-abortion lobbying groups also received more than $9.3 million in PPP loans, including national groups such as the Center for Reproductive Rights-more than $3.3 million-the National Abortion Federation-more than $583,000-and the Guttmacher Institute-more than $3 million.
