Abby Johnson was employed for 8 years at a Planned Parenthood branch in Bryan, Texas. For 2 of the 8 years, she was its director.
Recently, for the first time Johnson saw an ultrasound of a baby in the womb. Confronted with the undeniable reality that what she had seen was a living human being, she quit Planned Parenthood.
Not only that, Johnson is now confirming what has been alleged/rumored for years, that
- Planned Parenthood has a monthly abortion quota or goal;
- Planned Parenthood has a financial incentive to perform as many abortions as possible.
PLANNED PARENTHOOD’S ABORTION QUOTAS EXPOSED
Ex-director: We’d have client goal every month
By Chelsea Schilling – Nov 4, 2009
A former director of a Texas Planned Parenthood branch who resigned after she watched an ultrasound-guided abortion told WND the clinic was pushing employees to strive for abortion quotas to boost profits.
“There are definitely client goals,” former clinic director Abby Johnson said. “We’d have a goal every month for abortion clients and for family planning clients.”
Johnson, 29, said the Bryan, Texas, Planned Parenthood clinic performed surgical abortions every other Saturday, but it began expanding access to abortion to increase earnings.
“One of the ways they were able to up the number of patients that they saw was they started doing the RU-486 chemical abortions all throughout the week,” she said.
RU-486 chemical abortions kill the lining of the uterus, cutting off oxygen and nutrients, resulting in the death of an unborn baby. Johnson said the chemical abortion costs the same as an early first-trimester abortion: between $505 and $695 for each procedure.
She told WND the clinic was experiencing financial difficulties due to the economic downturn.
“Abortion is the most lucrative part of Planned Parenthood’s operations,” she said. “Even though they’re two separate corporations, all of the money goes into one pot. With the family planning corporation really suffering, they depend on the abortion corporation to balance their budget, help get them out of the hole and help make income for the company.”
She continued, “They really wanted to increase the number of abortions so that they could increase their income.”
Now Planned Parenthood has retaliated against Johnson, filing a restraining order against her because the clinic fears she may leak confidential information.
Johnson explained that she resigned after she saw an ultrasound-guided abortion in which an unborn baby was vacuumed out of a woman’s uterus.
“Ultrasound-guided abortions are not typically done in Planned Parenthood abortion centers because they’re more time-consuming, and that’s just not something that centers like that do,” she said. “I’d never seen one of those done before. For whatever reason, the physician had called me back to assist with the procedure. When I saw that, that was really when my heart was changed.”
Johnson, who was employed at the clinic for eight years and served as a director for two years, said the issue of abortion was “unsettling” for her the whole time she worked with Planned Parenthood. She said she kept “pushing down the guilt” and felt spiritually unsettled.
“There’s no religion and there’s no spirituality in an abortion clinic. There can’t be,” she said. “Whatever side you are on, pro-life or pro-choice, it is what it is – and that’s taking a human life.”
