Study of Effort to Exclude Planned Parenthood from Participation in Combined Federal Campaign. Report Prepared by the Staff of the Subcommittee on Civil Service of the Committee on Post Office and Civil Service. House of Representatives, 98th Congress, 1st Session. Committee Print No. 98-8.
Presented in this report is an account of the attempt made by the Director of the United States Office of Personnel Managment (OPM) to exclude the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) from participation in the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). The CFC is the annual charitable fundraising drive conducted among federal employees and military personnel. Topics addressed in the report include the development of the CFC, controversy concerning the admission of advocacy organizations in the CFC; conflict between the OPM and the PPFA during 1982, conflict between the OPM and the PPFA during 1983, questions the OPM required the PPFA to answer in an attempt to discover some technical flaw in their application, and problems relating to the existence of a double set of guidelines for accounting and financial reporting. The report concludes that women have a constitutionally protected right to terminate pregnancy through abortion and that the Director's effort to ban the PPFA on the basis of its support of that right is improper. Most of the report consists of 20 appendices containing related materials such as correspondence, memoranda, transcripts of proceedings, and records of court litigation. (RH)
