In a continuing series of reports that reveals the practices of Planned Parenthood, some of which violate laws, Live Action interviewed two former employees of the abortion giant. Both have revealed that staff was specially trained to convince pregnant women and girls to have abortions. (See video below)
Sue Thayer ran two Planned Parenthoods in Iowa and said each clinic had quotas, and staff knew how to approach patients with questions designed to coax them toward abortion.
“Your pregnancy test, your visit today is X number of dollars,” recounts Thayer. “How much are you going to be able to pay towards that? If they’d say I’m not able to pay today, then we’d say something like, Well, if you can’t pay $10 today, how are you going to be able to take care of a baby? Have you priced diapers? Do you know how much it costs to buy a car seat?“
Live Action also interviewed Marianne Anderson, a former Planned Parenthood nurse in Indianapolis. “I felt like I was more of a salesman sometimes to sell abortions,” she says, “and we were told on a regular basis that you have a quota to meet to keep this clinic open.”
According to Live Action, incentives such as paid time off or pizza parties were awarded for reaching the quota.
Planned Parenthood commits about a third of all abortions in the U.S. and receives over a half billion federal tax dollars annually.
