"The watchdog Campaign for Accountability, which is suing HHS over access to documents connected to the policy changes, says Obria should have never sought grant money under rules antithetical to its religious beliefs."
"Campaign for Accountability has launched an investigation into the Trump administration's relationship with Obria."
On Monday, the Campaign for Accountability released a detailed report on Obria’s financial history pointing out how successful its deceptive strategy has been: “Obria has been at the vanguard of [crisis pregnancy centers] trying to camouflage their religious operations in order to receive federal funding,” the group wrote.
"The Campaign for Accountability’s report, “Trolling For Title X Funds,” details Obria Group’s rise as an anti-choice clinic network, applying for and receiving state and federal funds along the way."
"Alice Huling, counsel for the Campaign for Accountability, a watchdog fighting a recent change in federal rules on what kinds of clinics can receive federal funds for healthcare services, said Google was usually the first resource for a woman with an unplanned pregnancy."
New Report, Trolling for Title X Funds, Reveals How the Anti-Birth Control Group, Obria, Misleads the Public
On May 13, 2019, CfA released a new report, Trolling for Title X Funds, which documents the growth and deception of Obria, a network of anti-abortion, anti-birth control clinics that received a $1.7 million grant from the Trump administration to provide family planning services, and is set to receive an additional $3.4 million over the next two years. CfA’s report provides a comprehensive history of Obria and reveals how the group has transformed from a single crisis pregnancy center in California to a national umbrella organization seeking to wrest Title X Funds away from legitimate healthcare providers.

Anti-Choice Group Susan B. Anthony List Removes Robert Kania as PAC Treasurer Following CfA’s Call for Removal
On Tuesday, May 7, 2019, Susan B. Anthony List, an anti-abortion advocacy organization, removed Pennsylvania businessman Robert J. Kania from his role as treasurer of one of its PACs, the Susan B. Anthony List, Inc. Candidate Fund.
"The watchdog Campaign for Accountability, which already is suing HHS over access to documents connected to the policy changes, is considering asking the agency's inspector general office to investigate how the money is being used — and trying to rally Congress to get involved."
"[Campaign for Accountability] now wants Kania to be removed as treasurer of the Susan B. Anthony List, an advocacy group that opposes abortion rights. The List is a nonprofit, and previous tax filings identify Kania as its treasurer. Federal Elections Commission reports show he also serves as treasurer for one of its political committees. That fund spent $755,797 on national political activism last year, according to data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics."
