Former abortion facility workers are exposing the abortion industry for what it is: a business that sells abortions to make money. These workers came together in a new video released by And Then There Were None — an organization that helps abortion workers quit their jobs — to reveal secrets about Planned Parenthood‘s abortion agenda, and the secrets of the industry as a whole.
“Most people who go into the abortion industry want to do so in order to help women, yet once they see what really goes on, many are horrified,” said Abby Johnson, former Planned Parenthood director and founder of And Then There Were None. “We need… unmask the abortion industry for what it really is: a predatory, calculated, money-making machine that pounces on women in their most vulnerable times.”
Planned Parenthood receives over $500 million in tax dollars annually, and commits 35 percent of the nation’s abortions. It sets abortion quotas for facilities, and in order to meet those quotas, abortion is pushed on patients, as confirmed by former Iowa Planned Parenthood manager Sue Thayer.
According to former facility nurse Shelley Guillory, if someone called the facility for a pregnancy test, no matter the day or time, someone went to do the test at the facility. Patients with positive tests would be scheduled for a counseling session (done by a phlebotomist) the next morning; when the patient came in, she was unknowingly scheduled for an abortion.
In addition to pressuring women into abortions, former workers have revealed how Planned Parenthood, in particular, got around Title X requirements which require counseling on all pregnancy options.
Monica Leal Cline, former Planned Parenthood HIV Health Educator/Title X Training Manager, said the organization “meet[s] those Title X requirements – with a pamphlet. But they’re not going to speak to them about those options.” Planned Parenthood also dislikes parental involvement, Cline says. “… [T]hey would tell me themselves, ‘Parents are a barrier to service. We don’t want parents involved.'”
Former Planned Parenthood manager Annette Lancaster said parents and patients were never given time to read any pamphlets, and counseling was cut from an hour down to 15 minutes. That means (as shown in the video below) pregnant girls and women aren’t being given the full truth about their options.
“Well, in my affiliate, an adoption referral was if a woman picked up that envelope, that, that bag, and it had a pamphlet in there about adoption. That counted as an adoption referral,” said Thayer. “You know, in all my years there, not in any of the 17 centers all across Iowa did we have adoption. Not once.”
The former workers also expose how Planned Parenthood even paid for hotel rooms and gas money to ensure that patients came back for their scheduled abortions. Everything they did had the end goal of abortion.
“Planned Parenthood… is very aggressive. They are a sales team. They want to make money, and they want as many customers as possible,” said Cline.
“Because they’re not interested in their alternatives,” added Guillory. “They have one agenda, and that’s to end a pregnancy.”
