The Government Accountability Office is launching an investigation into how Planned Parenthood spent millions of taxpayer dollars.

Planned Parenthood is the largest provider of abortions in the country and received a record $542 million in taxpayer support in fiscal 2012. The GOA confirmed Thursday that it’s launching an investigation into how much of this money was spent, according to Fox News.

The inquiry is in response to a request made by more than 50 members of Congress earlier this year who asked for a detailed report on how money is being used by Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers.

Specifically, Fox News noted, lawmakers want to know what procedures and services they provided and the number of people who were served and how much it cost.

The announcement comes on the heels of the report in Texas of a settlement with Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast resulting in that organization reimbursing the state $4.3 million for erroneous and fraudulent billing.

Casey Mattox, an attorney for Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative organization that has filed lawsuits against Planned Parenthood and is providing free legal assistance to former workers-turned-whistleblowers at Planned Parenthood, told Fox News that the group is surprised at how little media attention the fraud story has received.
