Former Planned Parenthood Workers Speak Out

Planned Parenthood has long presented itself as a compassionate champion of women’s healthcare and a safe haven for those in need. Their marketing campaigns have consistently emphasized their commitment of care and support for women’s reproductive rights. But is this the real story?

What if there is more to it? What if those who have firsthand experience working within Planned Parenthood could shed light on what truly goes on within its walls? 

By recounting the firsthand stories of former Planned Parenthood employees, we aim to provide an informed perspective, one that challenges the prevailing narrative and unveils hidden truths that Planned Parenthood would prefer to keep buried.

These former employees understand the inner workings of Planned Parenthood. They have chosen to share their experiences, and their decision to speak out is driven by a genuine concern for the well-being of women and babies, a desire to shed light on truths often unseen by the general public.

Below is a list of charges former Planned Parenthood employees have leveled against the abortion giant:

  • Profiteering. One woman, driven by a firm belief in a woman’s right to abortion, initially joined Planned Parenthood as an employee. However, over time, her perspective changed as she realized that far from supporting women, Planned Parenthood was actively harming them. She came to recognize that abortion is not the answer.

She candidly shared her experience, “I realized that that [abortion] wasn’t it. That abortion was just a business. That abortion was harming women and the babies were being treated like trash.”

Let’s examine the evidence. According to Planned Parenthood’s 2020-21 annual report, the organization disclosed a staggering $1.7 billion in income and boasted over $2.1 billion in net assets, marking an increase compared to previous reports.

Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood director, with extensive experience at Planned Parenthood, sheds light on her time within the organization. Throughout her tenure, she received consistent promotions solely based on her ability to generate substantial revenue through the sale of abortions. 

Now, having distanced herself from the organization, Johnson boldly asserts, “Planned Parenthood isn’t about healthcare, it’s about abortion.”

  • Racism. Planned Parenthood faces allegations of racism. Reportedly, 80 percent of their abortion clinics are conveniently located near minority neighborhoods, with 60 percent situated in minority zip codes. Shockingly, African American women, who constitute 13 percent of the female population, account for 36 percent of all abortions in the United States.

Accusations suggest that Planned Parenthood deliberately targets low-income and minority communities for maximum profitability. Former director Abby Johnson claims she was pressured to aggressively market abortion in these areas. Johnson further asserts that she received training to manipulate minority women by convincing them that abortion would empower them, exploiting their vulnerabilities.

In reality, this aggressive campaign does the opposite, giving minority women this not-so-subtle message: “You’re not strong enough.”

Investigative journalists have uncovered multiple cases where Planned Parenthood actively facilitated and collaborated with sex traffickers. When former Planned Parenthood manager Ramona Trevino discovered this disturbing truth, she made the courageous decision to leave the organization and break her silence. As one source reveals, the connection between Planned Parenthood and sex traffickers resembles a nationwide network aimed at protecting pedophiles.

  • “Treated Women Like Cattle.” Planned Parenthood’s motto: “Care no Matter What,” makes it seem like they must treat each individual woman who visits their clinics with compassion. According to these former Planned Parenthood workers, the reality is very different. 

Women often come into their clinics scared, unsure of what to do. What they need is to consult with a caring health advocate. Instead, they are rushed through quick appointments, treated like cattle, and pressured to get an abortion. 

Appointments which used to take thirty minutes, now take only fifteen. Discussions about birth control or other options are discouraged because it takes too much time. Workers are pressured to push women through the system quickly so they can meet their quota. As mentioned above, abortion is where they make their money.  

Furthermore, there are additional stories of extreme medical negligence, sexual abuse performed on unconscious women within the clinic by staff members, and other atrocities.

You deserve better. You deserve the truth. You deserve a safe place where you can trust licensed medical professionals to give you the best care and resources possible.
