Planned Parenthood illegally distributing abortion pill, legal group says
CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE, April 18, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – Planned Parenthood has been breaking New Hampshire state law by dispensing thousands of dollars of prescription drugs, including Plan B and RU-486, every single day, according to a legal complaint filed by the Alliance Defense Fund.
The nation’s largest abortion provider “must obey state laws that say only licensed pharmacists may distribute prescription drugs when a clinic is not under contract with the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services,” said Michael Tierney, an attorney affiliated with the Alliance Defense Fund.
Planned Parenthood of Northern New England (PPNNE) lost its contract with the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services in July. But the ADF says this did not end the group’s distribution of abortion-inducing drugs.
Instead, “Planned Parenthood is dispensing a substantial amount of pharmaceuticals,” according to Tierney’s legal complaint, which he filed Tuesday with the state Board of Pharmacy. “It dispenses over $4,000 of pharmaceuticals a day.”

Exhibit A reproduces an e-mail demonstrating PPNNE officials knew they had lost their contract. Another e-mail records a meeting involving high-level state officials, including Democratic Governor John Lynch, aiming to restore state funding.
Tierney states the group has continued handing out prescriptions since last September and intends to apply for a Limited Retail Drug Distributor’s license in June. He is asking the state to “take all appropriate action” to end this practice.
In January, the state legislature put Planned Parenthood at the bottom of organizations receiving family planning funds, effectively defunding it.
PPNNE has six locations throughout the state including Manchester, Exeter, Lebanon, Derry, Claremont, and Keene.
