Abortion clinics receive incentives for the number of baby-killing procedures they perform.
And what are some of those incentives? Pizza parties.
A stunning new investigative Live Action video shows testimony from a woman named Sue Thayer, a former Storm Lake, Iowa, Planned Parenthood manager. In an interview captured on the video, she explains: “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.”
Thayer is also shown discussing the “program” for reaching a quota of abortions or abortion referrals — one of these motivations included pizza parties for the staff. Thayer said, “It sounds kind of crazy, but pizza is a motivator [for getting the abortion numbers up].”
“Planned Parenthood doesn’t have quotas for adoptions. It doesn’t have quotas for prenatal care. But quotas for abortions? Absolutely.”
She also discussed the pressure Planned Parenthood employees would inflict on mothers who were considering all their options.
“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?'”
The new video also includes testimony from a former Planned Parenthood nurse who acknowledged that she often felt like a salesperson tasked with “selling” abortions.
“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, in a statement.
“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.”
