Live Action, a pro-life group, has been releasing a series of videos called "Abortion Corporation" to bring attention to what they say is the real incentive behind Planned Parenthood.
The latest video release features two former Planned Parenthood employees who claim that clinics are pressured to meet monthly sales quotas, and that there are incentives, like extra vacation hours, lunch with senior management or pizza parties, for achieving those goals.
According to the video, Sue Thayer, a former manager at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Iowa, said that every clinic that performed abortions:
"...had a goal for how many abortions were done. Centers that didn't do abortions, like mine that were family planning clinics, had a goal for the number of abortion referrals."
She said they had a chart to keep track of whether or not they met their goal and would try to schedule abortions for women who visited her clinic by peppering them with questions about how they were going to be able to afford a baby. She said her staff told these women:
"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? We can take care of that and set it up for you."
About the incentives, Thayer said:
"It sounds crazy, but pizza is a motivator."
The second woman who appears in the video is Marianne Anderson, a former nurse at Planned Parenthood and she said that staff members were pressured to meet quotas or they were told that their clinics would close.
As of this posting, Planned Parenthood has not commented on the video.
