State to begin audit of abortion-alternative group


State to begin audit of abortion-alternative group
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Pennsylvania Auditor General Eugene DePasquale will begin an audit this week of a Harrisburg-based nonprofit that oversees a network of abortion-alternative programs across the state.The review of the state’s contract with Real Alternatives comes nearly a year after the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that the nonprofit has a five-year, $30.2 million agreement and manages service providers, who must pledge to provide free services and “maintain a pro-life mission,” according to the pact, which expires in 2017.The state Department of Human Services, which did a separate audit earlier this year, asked this month for the auditor general’s help in accessing a set of expenses that Real Alternatives has so far declined to provide. DHS has said Real Alternatives reported earmarking some money, in part, to help to “support advancement” of its program in other states.
