Money laundering is the process of concealing the source of large amounts of money that have been gained through illegitimate means.
When someone wants to find a way to launder money, one of the best ways to do that is by setting up a business that handles large sums of cash. Since almost no abortion clinics accept personal checks, and since many patients don’t have credit cards or don’t want an abortion showing up on their monthly bill, this means that there is lots of cash flowing through the facility.
Most employees will have no way of knowing for certain that the clinic at which they work is being used to launder money. However, if you answer yes to one of the following questions, that could be an indicator that money laundering is occurring.
- Are employees ever paid in cash rather than by check?
- Are employees paid by check, but prohibited from leaving the clinic with the check and instead required to sign it back over to the clinic in exchange for the cash amount?
- Is there a person routinely present at the clinic who does not appear to have a role in clinic operations but demonstrates an interest in the clinic’s financial transactions?
AM I IN LEGAL TROUBLE?
When abortion clinic owners or directors are engaged in illegal activities, it is common for them to lure their employees into participating in these crimes. They believe that employees who are personally involved in criminal activity will be so frightened about detection and prosecution that they will keep silent.

If you have been a witness to, a participant in, or a victim of illegal activity taking place in an abortion clinic, you should immediately call to get the advice and assistance you need. There are no charges for our services.
