A recently released Live Action video features former Planned Parenthood managers lamenting the financial pressure put on clinics to maximize the revenue stream from abortion, the core of the organization’s business.
The pressure to meet set quotas trickled down from top executives, to managers, and fell heavily upon the women who sought care at the clinics.
“I trained my staff the way that I was trained, which was to really encourage women to choose abortion; to have it at Planned Parenthood, because it counts towards our goal,” one former manager said.
To reach their quotas, managers were trained to hard-sell abortion to their patients. “If they’d say, ‘I’m not able to pay [my bill] today,’ then we would say something like, ‘Well, if you can’t pay $10 today, how are you going to take care of a baby? Have you priced diapers? Do you know how much it costs to buy a car seat? Where would you go for help? There’s no place in Storm Lake (or whatever town they were in), you know, where you can get help as a pregnant mom. So really, don’t you think your smartest choice is termination?’”
According to the video, managers were incentivized to reach abortion quotas. “Planned Parenthood doesn’t have quotas for adoptions. It doesn’t have quotas for prenatal care. But quotas for abortions? Absolutely,” said Lila Rose, president and founder of Live Action.
“Planned Parenthood makes a profit off women in the midst of their most difficult experiences and incentivizes its staff to take the lives of children in the womb with pizza parties, paid time off, and lunches with upper management. It’s time to redirect our tax money toward local health clinics that actually provide real care to women, instead of to Planned Parenthood, a corporation focused on upping its abortion numbers.”
Planned Parenthood insists that its focus is on the patient, not the number of abortions performed.
