Top Planned Parenthood executive: Major government funds keep us in business

Cecile Richards

A former top executive for Planned Parenthood once admitted that the abortion corporation’s success is linked to power and money, and that taxpayer dollars enabled the abortion corporation to recruit, hire and pay their top staffers six-digit salaries — all while actual health services and patients declined.

For years, pro-life groups have documented that the hundreds of millions in government dollars Planned Parenthood receives are fungible, acting to free up other dollars which would normally be used for salaries, facility rent, and general overhead. Though Planned Parenthood leads the American public to believe that those taxpayer funds do not pay for abortions or the salaries of staff that commits abortions, top officials at Planned Parenthood, like R. James LeFevre, Jr., knew differently.

LeFevre began his career with Planned Parenthood in 1974 and was considered a mover and shaker inside the organization.

According to his resume, LeFevre worked as Chief Strategic Officer for the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) from 1999-2006, as PPFA’s Chief Operating Officer from 1996-1999, as interim co-president of PPFA from 1995-1996, and as executive director of Planned Parenthood of Northern New England from 1977-1995. In other words, he was not a low-level employee, but was heavily involved in the workings of Planned Parenthood as an organization.

In 1992, he authored a booklet called “Redirecting Boards, a New Vision of Governance for Planned Parenthood,” written as a reference for the various PPFA affiliate leaders.

It is there that LeFevre exposed how “the major influx of government funds” became the catalyst behind Planned Parenthood’s ability to recruit its staff. LeFevre writes:

Some 20 years ago the managerial “professionalism” of the executive director (and often the senior staff) began to emerge. This became possible because of the major influx of government funds (primarily federal), providing resources that enabled Planned Parenthood to offer extensive training to incumbents and to hire experienced managers (not just social workers, ministers, or nurses, who did not always have such managerial preparation or experience). This trend continued for other senior staff positions….

In other words, the ability for PPFA to hire top notch staff, executives and board members was directly related to public taxpayer funds.

LeFevre would know. After all, in addition to his many jobs within the abortion corporation, Live Action News previously reported that LeFevre was one of the nine members of PPFA’s “Reinvention Group,” tasked to “literally design PPFA in order to succeed in the era of health care reform.” Or, as the New York Times described it at the time, to change Planned Parenthood to a “broad health organization that could compete in the era of managed care.” But, despite today’s misleading rhetoric, this so-called “reinvention plan” created in the mid 1990’s to morph Planned Parenthood from an abortion facility into a health care agency failed because it barely mentioned abortion.

Live Action News has documented that Planned Parenthood is all about abortion and political organizing, but the scheme to masquerade as a health care organization continues to this day and has made Planned Parenthood executives very wealthy. According to Planned Parenthood’s annual reports, between 1997 and 2004, taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood increased over 65 percent from $165 million (1997) to $272.7 million (2004). Within those same years, abortions also increased a staggering 54 percent from 165,174 to 255,015.

What else increased during that same time period? The salary of PPFA’s president, Gloria Feldt.

In 1997, PPFA paid Feldt $245,853, plus $25,000 in expense account and other allowances. By 1999 (just two years later), Feldt was compensated $324,217 plus $16,938 in employee benefits and an additional $68,000 in expense account and other allowances.

Feldt’s salary increased each year by the amounts listed below (all categories totaled):

  • 2000- $24,000 increase
  • 2001 – $14,000 increase
  • 2002 – $12,000 increase
  • 2003- $29,000 increase

By 2004, the last year Feldt was employed by Planned Parenthood, her salary from PPFA skyrocketed to over $902,148 ($490,679 in compensation, $346,570 in employee benefits and an additional $64,899 in expense account and other allowances).

In other words, within just a few years, and with the help of government dollars, the president of Planned Parenthood had received a whopping 233 percent increase in her salary.

Enter Cecile Richards, whose “accomplishments” mirror those of Feldt. In 2006, when PPFA hired Richards to be their CEO/political organizer,  government dollars to the abortion corporation jumped from $336.7 million (2006) to $554.6 million (2015), also increasing nearly 65 percent.

Since Richards was hired to the organization’s CEO position, abortions rose from 289,750 to 328,348.

Thanks to Richards, Planned Parenthood now garners nearly 35 percent of the abortion market, while the organization’s actual health services and patient numbers are dwindling. But that hasn’t prevented Richards from seeing her salary increase. Richards began her career at Planned Parenthood receiving an annual compensation of $360,902, according to PPFA’s 990 reports that year. And, just like her predecessor, her salary also skyrocketed.

While abortions remained on the increase along with taxpayer dollars, Cecile Richard’s salary rose by over 165 percent. According to PPFA’s IRS Form 990 for 2014, in just a few years, Richards’ salary and compensation had reached a staggering $957,952.

Richards isn’t the only one cashing in on taxpayer dollars.

An analysis by American Life League (ALL) in 2017 examined compensation paid to Planned Parenthood’s 12 top employees and found they received a total of $4.7 million. The report also found that the average compensation of an affiliate CEO had increased 22 percent in just the last two years.

In addition, ALL found that all 56 PP affiliate CEOs made over $100,000 per year with some making more:

  • 33 make over $200,000 a year
  • 16 make over $300,000 a year
  • 6 make over $400,00 a year
  • 1 makes in excess of $500,000 a year

“The total compensation paid to all PP CEOs is $13.4 million. This income puts the average Planned Parenthood CEO in the top five percent of all workers in the United States,” ALL wrote in its press release.

A look at Planned Parenthood’s record reveals that it doesn’t deserve a cent of taxpayer money:

  • Documented evidence that women do not need Planned Parenthood for contraceptive services
  • Documented evidence that Planned Parenthood is losing patients
  • Documented evidence that services at Planned Parenthood are decreasing, despite an increase in abortions and government funding
  • Documented evidence dispelling Planned Parenthood’s 3% abortion myth
  • Documented evidence that Planned Parenthood lies about the services it provides, including prenatal care
  • Documented evidence that Planned Parenthood does not provide mammograms, despite claiming that it did
  • Documented evidence that funding Planned Parenthood also funds its abortion facilities
  • Documented evidence that Planned Parenthood has abortion quotas
  • Documented evidence that abortion is the primary service that tax-funded Planned Parenthood offers pregnant women because, as a former worker testified, “they made their money if somebody had an abortion”
  • Documented evidence regarding the poor standard of care Planned Parenthood gives to their clients, with former Planned Parenthood managers accusing Planned Parenthood of “treating women like cattle” and using ultrasounds only for abortions
  • Documented evidence that Planned Parenthood is misinforming women about the development of their babies
  • Documented evidence that Planned Parenthood was a eugenics-based organization at the time of its founding
  • Documented evidence that Planned Parenthood has been cited for overbilling abuses and Medicaid fraud, and for violating patient privacy
  • Documented evidence that Planned Parenthood is failing to report child sexual abuse (a violation that alone should result in the organization losing millions of taxpayer dollars granted to it under the federal Title X Family Planning Program)
  • Documented evidence on the kind of sex “education” the abortion corporation is giving to teens, with Planned Parenthood promoting BDSM and other disturbing sexual practices to teenagers

The list above does not include the number of women injured or killed after using Planned Parenthood’s abortion “services.”

So, while taxpayers are forced to fund this corrupt organization to end the lives of over 900 preborn babies a day, Planned Parenthood has increased its excess revenues (that’s right: profit) from $55.8 million in 2005 to a whopping $77.5 million last year alone all while paying its executives, especially its CEO, extremely high salaries.

It was all a part of the plan, as LeFevre outlined in his book where he noted, “In the last decade it has become abundantly clear that Planned Parenthood’s success is closely linked with power and money… it takes political muscle and big bucks to prevail.”

Sadly, many of those big bucks come from the taxpayer. Enough is enough. A full defunding of America’s corrupt abortion corporation is imperative.

Here are a dozen things the media won’t tell you about Planned Parenthood

Posted in HIPPA, Planed Parenthood abortion death, Planned Parenthood, Planned Parenthood 3% myth, Planned Parenthood abortion numbers, Planned Parenthood abortion stats, Planned Parenthood and Rape, Planned Parenthood and Sex Trafficking, Planned Parenthood fined by state, Planned Parenthood medicaid fraud, Planned Parenthood services, Planned Parenthood six digit salary, Planned Parenthood's botched surgery, Privacy, Title X with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 21, 2017 by saynsumthn

Planned Parenthood should be defunded. Despite all its scandals over the years, the pro-abortion mainstream media has largely kept the evidence of this from taxpayers. Perhaps it’s because the media approves of Planned Parenthood’s agenda, and the agenda of the politicians who defend the organization.

The media manipulates the American public by refusing to tell the truth about Planned Parenthood’s abuses, a fact Live Action News previously documented. Instead, the media repeats Planned Parenthood’s PR-approved talking points while failing to report important investigations exposing Planned Parenthood’s lies and deceptions.

Here are some facts about Planned Parenthood that mainstream media has failed to report:

Fact #1: Planned Parenthood is a private corporation whose political action committee contributes heavily to the same politicians sending them millions of dollars each year — over half a billion annually. PP is a master manipulator and marketer politically and this drives the dollars politicians send them. Planned Parenthood’s CEO, Cecile Richards, was not hired for her health care “experience” but for her political savvy, as Live Action News’ Rebecca Downs has explained:

Planned Parenthood may claim to be a health organization, but Richards herself has no health experience — her background is in politics, a background which even the Planned Parenthood website emphasizes. In addition to running Planned Parenthood, she also runs Planned Parenthood Action Fund, which is — you guessed it — a political organization. After Richards spoke before Congress in September 2015, the Oversight Committee expressed concerns that there was an overlap in where Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer money was going. Are Planned Parenthood and Planned Parenthood Action Fund really so different?

Fact #2: Planned Parenthood masquerades as a health care provider. This scheme to reinvent themselves was developed years ago, as Live Action News has detailed here, to mask the fact that they are the largest chain of abortion facilities in the United States.

Fact #3: There are thousands of federally qualified health centers which provide far superior health care to Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood has lost more than half a million patients (600,000) since 2011. Yet, taxpayer-funded health centers, as identified by the federal Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), increased patients by over 2 million by 2015, providing care to 24,295,946.

Fact #4: Planned Parenthood services are on the decline despite major increases in government funding. Except, of course, when it comes to abortion, where Planned Parenthood garners nearly 35 percent of the market share.

  • MAMMOGRAMS: Planned Parenthood performed zero, because Planned Parenthood facilities do not have mammogram machines. Yet, in 2015, federal health centers performed mammograms on over 521,000 patient,  an increase from 470,000 in 2014.
  • BREAST EXAMS dropped 12 percent in 2015 at Planned Parenthood, and between 2004 and 2015, breast exams at Planned Parenthood declined by more than 65 percent.
  • PAP TESTS: Planned Parenthood’s 2015 report reveals that Pap tests declined 75 percent from 2004. Yet, in 2015, federal health centers administered over 1.8 million Pap tests to patients — an increase from 1.7 million in 2014.
  • CANCER SCREENINGS declined at Planned Parenthood from last year’s figures, and, between 2004 and 2015, cancer screenings there plummeted 69 percent.
  • PRENATAL CARE: Planned Parenthood is deceptive about providing prenatal care, which was nearly cut in half in 2015. Since 2010, prenatal care at Planned Parenthood has decreased nearly 70 percent. Yet, in 2015, federal health centers cared for a total of 552,000 prenatal patients — an increase from 528,000 prenatal patients in 2014.

Fact #5: Planned Parenthood claims defunding their organization will hurt poor women yet Planned Parenthood’s own officials rake in hefty six digit salaries, getting regular raises. An analysis of CEO compensation at Planned Parenthood by STOPP revealed that the top 68 people at Planned Parenthood take home $18.1 million combined.

Fact #6: Planned Parenthood has been netting a profit for many years, exceeding its expenses — not just by a few dollars, but by tens of millions of dollars (yearly surpluses range from $12.2 million in 2001 to a high of $155.5 million in 2010).

Fact #7: Women can die after receiving Planned Parenthood’s “services.” Cree Erwin-Sheppard recently died after her abortion at a Michigan Planned Parenthood. Tonya Reaves was left bleeding inside Planned Parenthood’s Chicago facility for hours. She died later at a hospital.

Fact #8: Emergencies at Planned Parenthood are on the rise. The pro-life watchdog group Operation Rescue (OR) has documented that a number of Planned Parenthood centers have had to call for emergency transports of patients. OR reports that “since January 1, 2016, Operation Rescue has documented 40 such incidents at Planned Parenthood abortion centers alone.”

Fact #9: Undercover footage from the Center for Medical Progress caught Planned Parenthood haggling over prices for aborted baby parts. Planned Parenthood’s CEO admitted they still participate in fetal harvesting, saying at the time, “Planned Parenthood is proud of its limited role in supporting fetal tissue research.”

The House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives‘ final report into the fetal parts industry found several disturbing issues with Planned Parenthood. Live Action News contributor Susan Michelle-Hanson reviewed the 471-page report and noted that Planned Parenthood “committed systematic violations of the HIPAA Privacy Rule from about 2010 to 2015, and that “violations occurred when the abortion clinics disclosed patients’ individually identifiable health information to StemExpress to facilitate the [tissue procurement business]’s efforts to procure human fetal tissue for resale.”

Fact #10: Planned Parenthood has violated the trust of patients by violating patient privacy, as stated above. In addition, an analysis by Live Action News found many other instances of privacy leaks by the government funded abortion business.

Fact #11: Planned Parenthood has been cited for overbilling abuses and has been accused of Medicaid fraud.

2017 report, conducted by the Charlotte Lozier Institute and Alliance Defending Freedom, looked at publicly available audits and discovered several egregious examples of fraud and abuse associated with Planned Parenthood.

Among other abuses, the study found:

  • Planned Parenthood affiliates have been identified as the source of at least $12.8 million in waste, abuse, and potentially fraudulent overbilling and penalties.
  • One audit uncovered $5.2 million in overbilling by two California Planned Parenthood affiliates; the average overbilled amount per audited year in a single audit was $94,409. 
  • Three federal audits specifically identify Planned Parenthood – and only Planned Parenthood– as the problem in state family planning program overbilling.

Fact #12: Planned Parenthood has been caught failing to report child sexual abuse (a violation that alone should result in the organization losing millions of taxpayer dollars granted to it under the federal Title X Family Planning Program). Reports also found that victims of sex trafficking are sometimes taken to Planned Parenthood centers for forced abortions by their pimps.

So, when it comes to health care for women, Planned Parenthood is far from the worthy organization it claims to be. The bottom line is that American taxpayer should not be obligated or forced to hand millions of dollars to an abortion corporation with fraud and serious abuses on their record.

Planned Parenthood claims website hacked by “extremists”

Posted in Planned Parenthood with tags , , , , , , on July 30, 2015 by saynsumthn

Yesterday abortion giant Planned Parenthood’s website went down.

The organization that harvests baby parts is blaming the website crash on “extremists” however they have not named any groups or persons.

July 2015 PP hacked

Planned Parenthood site dow 7 2015

Planned Parenthood has been highly criticized after the group The Center for Medical Progress released several under cover videos showing their top doctors haggling over the price of baby organs harvested after abortions.

Intact babies Planned Parenthood

A recent video uploaded by CMP showed inside a Planned Parenthood Path Lab.

The video showed behind the scenes of the abortion clinic including graphic images of the babies being dissected by tweezers.

Texas Attorney General has reported that when investigators went into a Planned Parenthood in the state to investigate charges they are illegally selling the baby organs, they witnessed fingers and toes in what the abortion business calls their “POC room.

Stem Express financial profit Planned Parenthood

Yesterday, the procurement company used by Planned Parenthood, Stem Express successfully obtained a temporary restraining order against the CMP releasing videos of conversations with their staff members.

Stem Express fetal kidneys were used in an experiment where researchers implanted baby organs into animals such as rats (read here).

Pro-life group buys lot next to Planned Parenthood abortion clinic

Posted in Planned Parenthood, Pro-Life with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 4, 2015 by saynsumthn

Below is a story about a group Saynsumthn has followed for a while – Imperial Valley Coalition for Life which has been fighting a Planned Parenthood from opening and performing abortions in their community.

El Centro Planned Parenthood

I previously blogged about one of the counsel meetings where a Planned Parenthood supporter yelled “Hail Satan” as police escort him out of meeting.

Now, I see the pro-life group has purchased land next to the abortion clinic and they have a unique way of helping their community- read below:

REPUBLISHED FROM LIFE DYNAMICS BLOG:

A pro-life group in a California city has organized the “BIGGEST and BEST Baby Shower ever” to promote life in the face of a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic opening in the area.

Baby SHower 8_7188481601389711261_o

Thousands have spoken out against Planned Parenthood’s plans to perform abortions in the majority Hispanic community of El Centro.

They have organized rallies and expressed their views before their city counsel..

Baby Shower Alveda King 9162075275_o

The controversy over the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic even drew the attention of Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who recently addressed the council about Planned Parenthood’s targeting of minority communities.

Alveda King USe Baby Shower 4_4455664276196264755_o

In front of the El Centro counsel, King called Planned Parenthood a “well planned killing machine.

It was outside that council meeting that pro-lifers held their unusual baby shower event.

Chris Nunn president of Imperial Valley Coalition for Life told the counsel about the baby shower, “Outside tonight we are celebrating the biggest baby shower on earth…It’s our way of saying as a coalition that we are here to help you young women if you should choose to keep your child.”

Chris Nunn Baby Shower 4582_6333541222059995796_n

Nunn, who is also the pastor of Christ Community Church in El Centro, told Life Dynamics why they sponsored by the baby show.

The Baby Shower for Life was an event sponsored by the Imperial Valley Coalition for Life with the intent of showing our community that we care,” he said.

“As a coalition, we felt it was important to do something positive in the midst of all of the controversy surrounding Planned Parenthood’s arrival in our valley. We wanted young women and men to know that we are serious about meeting their needs and serving them as they welcome their babies into the world. At our core, Imperial Valley Coalition for Life is not an activist organization and we don’t want to be seen as activists. We want to serve our communities as minsters of the gospel and as a conduit of hope for those who find themselves struggling with unplanned pregnancy,” he said.

Listen to Pastor Nunn address the counsel at 43:00 in the video below:

“Tonight is not about protest,” Pastor Nunn told the counsel.

“Tonight is about rallying the pro-life community together to celebrate hope and life and love,” he said.

Baby Shower Imperial Valley 18064357052841_n

The groups collected the following items that will be used to help women and families:

    676 boxes of diapers
    50 boxes and 144 packages of diaper wipes
    10 car seats
    9 strollers
    2 Baby Chairs
    5 Diaper Bags
    Over 100 sets of clothing
    40 sets of bottles
    40 blankets
    15 bath sets
    50 bottles of shampoo & lotion
    6 pack & play sets

The response by the pro-life community was so overwhelming that the Imperial Valley Coalition for Life has decided to make their Baby Shower for Life an annual event so that they can continue to provide for the needs of young families in the valley.

In addition, the group plans to open a pro-life health care clinic next to the Planned Parenthood site to offer a counseling center similar to Planned Parenthood, but without the contraceptives or abortion.

prolife buys lot next to Planned Parenthood

Pastor Nunn told the Imperial Valley Press that “friends of the coalition” bought the lot next to Planned Parenthood.

Prolife group buys land next door

Until the pro-life facility opens, members of the Coalition say they will park in the lot and pray for the women as they go into Planned Parenthood.

There are those moments when you read something and you do a double take and then… you still cannot believe what you are reading.

Like this: Born after Roe meme from Planned Parenthood.

Hard to believe?

Born after Roe 0ff8b40970c-320wi

Born After Roe is described by Planned Parenthood as , “a reproductive health advocacy group that welcomes new and ardent supporters of Planned Parenthood into a safe space for education and conversation. Its free advocacy salons are specifically aimed at supporters in their 20s and 30s. Past salons have focused on the Supreme Court Hobby Lobby v. Burwell decision, elections, health insurance, how to talk about abortion and sexuality with family and friends, and more.”

So, let me get this right.

Planned Parenthood is concerned about the “next generation?”

“Ask us Anything” a tempting offer from Planned Parenthood

Posted in Planned Parenthood with tags , , , , , on May 15, 2015 by saynsumthn

While hanging out tweeting this evening I noticed that abortion biz Planned Parenthood was inviting the public to ask them questions.

Capture

It’s called the “Ask us anything” campaign and it runs through National Women’s Health Week (May 10-16).

According to the largest chain of abortion clinics, Planned Parenthood Federation of America wants women to ask questions they might not feel comfortable asking anyone else.

PP Ask anything

PP

Ask us anything Planned Parenthood

Well…at first I was going to scroll past the tweet but the request was just so tempting and – well – I decided to take the bait:

Planned Parenthood ask us anything saynsumthn

After I clicked the Tweet button, I got to thinking.

I bet there are a lot of people who would like to “Ask Planned Parenthood Anything.”

So, to get the party started, I put together a list of questions one might want to ask the abortion giant:

    Why does Planned Parenthood kill babies?
    How do Planned Parenthood employees sleep at night?
    Exactly when does life begin according to Planned Parenthood?
    Why does Planned Parenthood cover for child sexual predators?
    Why does Planned Parenthood name their most prestigious award after a Klan speaker
    Exactly how may tax funded Planned Parenthood employees make 6 digit salaries?
    Why does Planned Parenthood teach young girls about BDSM?
    Is there an abortion Planned Parenthood won’t do?
    How many women besides Tonya Reaves has Planned Parenthood left to die lately?
