SHOCK REPORT: Abortion Pays Like You Won’t Believe – Planned Parenthood Salaries Revealed

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.

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.”

School Hangs These Posters Urging Teens To Protect ‘Character.’ Here’s Planned Parenthood’s Response

Planned Parenthood finds it “despicable” that a Wisconsin high school would hang a poster encouraging students to protect a woman’s “character” on prom night.

The poster showed the image of a young lady in prom dress, which read “A Night To Protect Her Character.” The image contained character attributes including ‘charming’, ‘fearless’, ‘honest’, ‘loyal’, ‘independent’, and ‘thoughtful.’

The posters were provided by the Crossing of Manitowoc County, a non-profit, Christian-based pregnancy services and counseling organization, and Holy Family Memorial, a regional Catholic healthcare provider network.

The school district noted in a statement that the posters were not in violation of the school’s policies and one of “several merely intending to promote a positive prom experience. No particular religious standard or expectation was being promoted.”

Planned Parenthood, which is the largest abortion provider in America, tweeted out the following after learning of the poster:

Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood’s advice instead was this:

Planned Parenthood II

One of the students, Kelsey Schindl, a senior at Lincoln High School, took offense to the “protect her character” prom night posters.

“It’s basically just saying your character depends on whether or not you have sex,” she told Mashable. “And if you have sex, you won’t have any character.”

She went to the principal’s office and demanded their removal. As an alternative, she wanted to put her own poster with a message of “acceptance.” The principal informed her that they would not be removed.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation then stepped in, sending a threatening letter to the district. Sam Grow, an attorney with the Foundation, told local ABC affiliate WBAY that the thinking promoted by the poster is “backwards.” He added: “There is no reason to be filling young women’s heads with that garbage.”

The Crossing of Manitowoc County stood by the message in a statement: “[W]e are very concerned with promoting healthy relationships among young people. Prom time seems to present particular risks for teens. Our poster and outreach programs are intended to raise awareness of some of the potential risky behaviors often attached to prom night.  We hope that these posters will remind and encourage teens to embrace healthy responsible behaviors so that prom will be a “night to remember not a night to regret.”

Holy Family Memorial also stood firm: “This poster was one part in a series of timely social messages reinforcing the importance of values such as confidence, honesty and determination. We firmly support the message of promoting healthy and responsible behavior among the youth of our community.”

Because of the controversy, the school district ultimately decided to remove the posters, stating: “[T]he school hopes that the focus of prom can return to what should be a positive social experience for our students.”

A poll conducted by the National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy found that two-thirds of teenagers who had sexual intercourse wished they had waited.

Doctors Discover Protocol To Save Babies After Abortion Is Started

A young woman, 10 weeks pregnant and distraught after the death of her father, decided she could not cope with a pregnancy at that time. She went to her local Planned Parenthood office, which provided her with the abortion pill RU-486. She took the pill and left the office.

Later that day, she regretted her decision and went back to the Planned Parenthood office the next morning to see if she could reverse the effect of the pill. The staff there informed her that she could not–and that if she did not finish the series of pills, she could face medical complications.

Still in the waiting room, the woman Googled ‘abortion pill reversal’ on her phone and found a number to a national call center that linked her with doctors willing to help reverse the abortion. Within 45 minutes, she was in the office of Dr. Allan Sawyer, an Arizona OB-GYN, who showed her an ultrasound of her baby moving in her womb with a heartbeat. He prescribed the hormone progesterone to reverse the effects of RU-486. Now safely through the first trimester, this grateful woman’s baby is due in September.

Although this procedure is fairly new, 80 children have been saved using it; and 60 more pregnancies like the woman’s described above are ongoing due to the procedure. Lifesite News published the account of Dr. Matt Harrison, who describes how he performed the first RU-486 reversal.

Eric Metaxas writes in Breakpoint:

Dr. Sawyer cannot be written off as a fly-by-night character, either. He is the former president of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and he has delivered more than 10,000 babies on three continents.

In testimony before a state legislative committee, he said the abortion pill works by attacking progesterone in the pregnant woman, which kills the baby in utero. This effect can be reversed if progesterone is given to her quickly.

In early April, Arizona Governor Ducey signed into law a requirement that physicians must inform women who take the abortion pill that the pill’s effects may be reversible.

Who could be against that? Only those who say it infringes on a woman’s “right to choose.” Except that they don’t seem so eager to guarantee the right of a woman to choose to have her baby.

 Are you willing to help spread the word about reversing abortion pill RU-486? Like and share.

Austin Charges $1 Per Year Rent To Abortion Clinic

While small business owners are having a hard time staying in business during the Obama economic disaster, the City of Austin is only charging $1 per year rent to the nation’s largest chain of abortion clinics.

That’s right. Planned Parenthood, more appropriately nicknamed ‘Planned Barrenhood’, gets far better than ‘most favored nation’ status. They get a totally unfair boost from big government for offering their murderous services to underage girls who get pregnant and never tell mom or dad and visit the clinic again and again and again–all compliments of U.S. taxpayers’ subsidization of the biggest and most horrific exterminator of pre-born Americans in the history of our once great Republic.

How dare government politicians spend our money like that! How dare they even allow this evil practice, no less subsidize it–without the vote of taxpayers who fund it! And nationally, Planned Parenthood gets a half a billion dollars of federal funds per year.

But this is nothing new for the city of Austin. They haven’t just been subsidizing abortions for the past 4 years. They’ve offered this $1 per year rental of the huge government-owned facility to these butchers for the past 40 years! And it doesn’t matter how bad the economy is; come rain or shine, they keep that blood money flowing.

Kind of makes you wonder what similar dastardly deeds are happening in your community.

Heaven help us on judgment day.

Democrats’ Policies Are Literally Killing Us

Some might wonder how Democrats can be so proud of their extreme position on abortion; but Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz just doubled-down, insisting there be no limits on when a mother can end the life of her unborn baby. We can thank Rand Paul for challenging her to justify “killing a seven-pound baby that is not born yet.”

Few remember when Planned Parenthood President Cecil Richards said her kids’ lives “began when I delivered them.” On Wednesday, Paul stated, “Ask her when life begins, and you ask Debbie when it’s okay to protect life. When you get an answer from Debbie, get back to me.”

Abortion being a sacrament to the left, as well as big business leading to millions of dollars in donations, Schultz reiterated the Democrat Party demands no limits on abortion, adding, “I support letting women and their doctors make this decision without government getting involved. Period. End of story.”

Most of us believe God creates every life in His image. This is not merely a social, financial, or political issue. It is a moral issue. Our tax dollars should not help fund something we know is sin and that we strongly oppose. The abortion business seems to help doctors and the Democratic Party leaving millions of women in anguish. They’ve done some excellent (read: evil) marketing through the years.

In other disappointing but not surprising news, the New York State Assembly just approved a bill allowing for abortion up to the moment of birth. Many “anti-lifers” refuse to defend their reasoning because they attempt to make a distinction between just inside and outside the birth canal. I would like them to logically explain how an unborn child who is one day away from his due date can be dismembered or shot in the heart with poison, but a newborn baby can’t? Theirs is an indefensible position; and yet, government, Hollywood, and the media generally defend the so-called right to choose.

Tragically, more black babies are aborted than born in the Democrat stronghold of New York City. Hispanics are not far behind, as they account for 31% of all abortions in New York. Don’t you find it strange that, in a liberal media claiming to support minorities, rarely does anyone address the truth? Roughly 78% of Planned Parenthood clinics are located in minority neighborhoods and inner cities. Does anyone sees any connection between the eugenics, population control, and racism endorsed by Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, and abortion policy today?

If you support abortion, but claim to follow Jesus Christ and identify as a Christian, please examine your worldview on the subject of life. Search your heart, particularly if you are a dedicated Democrat. You may find you have bought into progressive propaganda and have an inner contradiction needing to be dealt with. How can you defend the moral relativism in society today and yet profess faith in a holy God and trust in the Bible which promotes absolute truth?

Thankfully, more young people today lean pro-life, and over 80% of American citizens favor abortion restrictions; but who seems to be winning this cultural battle? The extremists with the loudest voices have made progress and have the advantage, but they are not winning public opinion. Their agenda, however, will continue to be forced on all Americans until more of us unashamedly preach the gospel and protect all life, including the elderly.

When people sincerely return to faith in God or become genuine Christians for the first time, their worldview must necessarily change, which affects their behavior and politics. Sure, we may win a few surface battles and pass more pro-life legislation, which is good; but until we commit to praying and seeing hearts changed for Christ, the debate will continue to go back and forth.

Do you have a biblical Christian worldview, and are you willing to speak and stand up for the most vulnerable among us? If your answer is yes, then your actions, politics, and words should line up with your faith; and you will make the only logical choice: life.
