Nearly 330,000 — that’s the number of abortions Planned Parenthood clinics performed during the organization’s fiscal year 2014, according to a post on CNS News. Specifically, says the article, that reported number of 327,653 reported abortions “works out to an average of 37 abortions per hour or nearly 1 every 90 seconds.”
Those are staggering numbers. But when it comes to how much Planned Parenthood executives are paid to make sure those abortions are carried out, many might find the numbers equally — if not more — shocking. An organization founded in 1979 called American Life League — which bills itself as “the largest grassroots Catholic pro-life education organization in the United States” — has just released a report detailing the mind-blowing salaries top corporate employees of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America receive. The report also reveals how much those salaries have gone up in recent years, even as the wages of average Americans have remained stagnant or gone down.
Explaining that all data were obtained from public records, including federal forms and filings, the League’s report discloses the salaries of 12 of Planned Parenthood’s highest paid executives. Among those is the abortion provider’s CEO and Obama pal Cecile Richards, who is said to have pulled down nearly $600 thousand in 2014. Below is an image of a table taken from the June 2015 report by the American Life League.
And it’s not just the top execs in Planned Parenthood’s corporate suites who get the big bucks for making sure expectant women can readily terminate their pregnancies. According to the League’s report on compensation for leaders at the biggest Planned Parenthood affiliates across the country, providing abortion services is a very lucrative profession. Each of these execs collects more than a quarter-of-a-million dollars annually. Below is an image of another chart from the report.
As for the salary increases these abortion providers have enjoyed in recent years, the report from the American Life League says: “The CEOs saw a 14.6 percent increase in the average salary in the last three years.”
By the way, Planned Parenthood – America’s biggest abortion corporation — gets hundreds of millions of dollars each year from the federal government. Life News said in January of this year: “Planned Parenthood continued to receive over a half-billion dollars in taxpayer money, as it took in $540 million in 2012 and $528 million in 2013.”
