Former abortion workers expose the industry’s alleged quotas for abortions and birth control, as well as the minimal information that counts as an adoption referral, how parents are barriers to making the abortion clinic a financial success, and how young, vulnerable pregnant women are manipulated. Most people who go into the abortion industry want to do so in order to help women, yet once they see what really goes on, many are horrified. We need to tell their stories and unmask the abortion industry for what it really is: a predatory, calculated, money-making machine that pounces on women in their most vulnerable times.
Featuring four previous abortion workers:
- Sue Thayer, former manager at Planned Parenthood
- Shelley Guillory, former registered nurse at Delta Clinic and Women’s Health
- Monica Leal Cline, former HIV health educator/Title X training manager at Planned Parenthood
- Annette Lancaster, former manager at Planned Parenthood

It was very confusing for me when leadership would say, “We don’t have a quota,” but in the same breath, a few weeks later, I was being reprimanded for not meeting certain numbers for procedures (abortions).
The one thing about our clinic that I found so humiliating and dehumanizing was that if a larger woman came in, she was charged an additional $150 to $200 because she created a little more difficulty because of her size. Whether the abortion was complicated or not, because she was large, she was charged extra.
We didn’t do sedation…regardless of how far along, from eight weeks to sixteen weeks. It was all done the same. No medication, nothing. You laid there, you took the pain, and that was that
Because of my decision to work at PP, I second guessed ALL of my decisions.
That is the whole goal of Planned Parenthood’s community education program. It’s not really to educate people on STDs. It is to develop that rapport with young people so that they can turn them into clients eventually
