According to this News Tribune article, Planned Parenthood must pay damages to former employee, judge rules
By Michelle Dupler, Tri-City Herald
Published: Aug. 2, 2012

The organization formerly known as Planned Parenthood of Central Washington has been ordered to pay a former employee more than $106,000 in damages after firing her because of a disability.

The money awarded to Shannon Sharp by a Benton County Superior Court judge includes more than $86,000 for back wages and $20,000 for emotional distress.

Karl Eastlund, the organization’s CEO, also was ordered to pay Sharp $30,000 for emotional distress. ( Keep in mind his salary in general-above)

Sharp waged an eight-year battle against her former employer that culminated in a jury verdict in her favor in late June.

Her lawsuit claimed that Planned Parenthood fired her from her job as a regional manager after she was diagnosed with degenerative arthritis in her neck and back that required ongoing medical treatment.

Her neck and back pain sometimes made Sharp unable to perform all of her job functions, and her lawsuit alleged that Planned Parenthood fired her rather than provide reasonable accommodations, court documents said.

Planned Parenthood — now Planned Parenthood of Greater Washington and North Idaho — claimed in court that it fired Sharp because of her performance.

“In our view, we followed all laws and professional protocols when we terminated her employment due to performance; however, recently a court agreed that the former employee’s claims had some merit,” Planned Parenthood officials said in a statement at the time of the verdict. “While we believe we followed all laws, we respect the court process, and we are grateful this legal process has concluded so that we can continue to focus on patient care.”

Court documents said Sharp had never received a negative performance evaluation or reprimand, and that the organization’s human resources department performed no independent investigation.

The lawsuit was filed in 2004 but was delayed for several years because Washington’s anti-discrimination law was unsettled because of court battles and legislative changes, Sharp’s attorney, Michael Saunders, told the Herald.

The case finally came to trial in June, and a jury found that Sharp was fired because of her disability.

Some questions about monetary payments remained, and Judge Cameron Mitchell on July 23 signed the judgments against Planned Parenthood for $106,000 and Eastlund for $30,000.

In the video below, Eastlund explains that Planned Parenthood has an “Image Problem” inside a church of all places….I guess they do given they are the number one provider of abortions in the nation , and they discriminate against people with disabilities, as well as setting up their clinics in minority neighborhoods and were founded by a racist and eugenics Klan Speaker ( See Maafa21)

Planned Parenthood CEO tells church – “WE HAVE AN IMAGE PROBLEM”

In the video below, Karl Eastlund, President of Planned Parenthood of Greater Washington and North Idaho attempts to tell members of the Bethany Presbyterian Church in Spokane that that Planned Parenthood has an “Image Problem” ….

When asked by a member about Planned Parenthood being known for abortion which is the taking of unborn children in the womb in all months of pregnancy, Eastlund responds, ” We unfortunately do have a marketing and an image problem, so, we have not been able to sell to the public, and to inform them of the services we do as well as we would like to...”, then Eastlund uses the code word “SOCIAL JUSTICE” in attempting to lure these members into buying their Koolaid.

I guess they do given they are the number one provider of abortions in the nation and they set up their clinics in minority neighborhoods and were founded by a racist and eugenics Klan Speaker ( See Maafa21)

To add to their already dismal image problem: Planned Parenthood of Central Washington, recently lost a lawsuit to a former employee who charged the so-called pro-woman organization with discrimination for her disability.

Shannon Sharp worked for Planned Parenthood of Central Washington as a regional manager before being diagnosed with degenerative arthritis in her neck and back that required ongoing medical treatment, her attorney Mike Saunders of Seattle told the media.

Her neck and back pain sometimes made Sharp unable to perform all of her job functions, and her lawsuit alleged that Planned Parenthood fired Sharp rather than provide reasonable accommodations. The case came to trial in June of 2012, and a jury on June 27, 2012 awarded more than $136,000 to Sharp after finding that she was fired because of her disability.

Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger, was a member in good standing with the racist American Eugenics Society. Sanger had board members who were known for their racist writing and Sanger published many of those in her publications. Sanger called for parents to have a QUOTE: LICENSE TO BREED controlled by people who believed in her eugenic philosophy. She wanted all would be parents to go before her eugenic boards to request a “PERMIT TO BREED“.

Margaret Sanger once said, “More children from the fit, less from the unfit — that is the chief aim of birth control.” Birth Control Review, May 1919, p. 12

Planned Parenthood’s top award is called the Margaret Sanger Award, despite the fact that Sanger was an admitted Klan speaker. This is what Sanger wrote in her autobiography, “I accepted an invitation to talk to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan…I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses…I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak…In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered.” (Margaret Sanger: An Autobiography, P.366 Read it here http://library.lifedynamics.com//Autobiography/Chapter%2029.pdf)

Perhaps the hard working American public would like to think that an organization that receives TAX DOLLARS could pay their employees a little less than 6 digit salaries.

Other Officers at the National Level received the following compensation:

CFO, MARIA ACOSTA received $89,691 from Planned Parenthood $5,725 from related organizations and $2,362 in estimated compensations

CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER MARYANA ISKANDER received $245,814 from Planned Parenthood and $23,696 in estimated compensations

Before joining PPFA in 2006, Meredith spent nearly nine years as the chief operating officer at the now defunct and now disaffiliated Planned Parenthood Golden Gate, a Planned Parenthood clinic which squandered tax dollars and will close and never repay their debtors .

NATIONAL POLITIC AND FIELD DIR, ELLEN GOLOMBEK received $203,843 from Planned Parenthood $10,729 from related organizations and $15,288 in estimated compensations, she has since left Planned Parenthood to work in the Colorado Governor’s Administration.

Anne M. Robinson made $168,767

What does Tax Dollars get Planned Parenthood of Illinois

Six Digit Pay Checks !!!! Paid for by you and me, according to their 2008 990 tax form.

Medical Director Caroline Hoke made $313,895

CEO Steve Trombley made $304,220 plus $58,000 bonus income = $362,220

Physician Jennifer Brown made $155,330

CFO Cheryl Harris made $120,324

VP of development made $119,915

VP of clinic operations Julie Rabinovitz made $116,748

Assoc. Medical Director Kai Tao made $109,725


According to the report, the average hours they all worked was only 35 hours per week for their FAT CAT RICH SIX DIGIT PLANNED PARENTHOOD SALARIES !

According to the 2007 990 tax report filed by Mid-Hudson Valley Planned Parenthood , their execs are smiling because they raked in thousands in salaries off the backs of taxpayers like you and me:

President and CEO Claire Coleman made $154,437

Physician Raymond Burnett-Biglane made $104,749

VP Patient Services Kyra Carr made $93,426

VP Development Anne Matsui made $86,775

VP Finance Yvonne Van Tassel made $86,775

These figures do not account for each Planned Parenthood director – there are over 800 locations, making six digits in many cases as welll….

Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Web site shows that it performed 332,278 abortions in 2009, up 8,270 from 2008. Why should the taxpayer be forced to fund abortion?

Planned Parenthood also PROFITED $64 million dollars in that same year ! Why do they need you and I to fund them?

But, Planned Parenthood’s profits are politicians gains. Just look at this analysis from Open Secrets which monitors 501C3 organizations and how they distribute and collect their funding:

The organization’s political action committee, for example, donated more than $148,000 to federal candidates — almost all Democrats –– during the 2010 election cycle. The PAC spent more than $443,000 overall.

Planned Parenthood also recorded $905,796 in independent expenditures during the 2010 cycle — money spent in support of, or in opposition to, federal political candidates, largely through advertisements. The top beneficiaries of this money were Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and Patty Murray (D-Wash.).

In 2010 alone, Planned Parenthood and a California affiliate together spent more than $700,000 on federal lobbying efforts, a Center for Responsive Politics analysis of federal lobbying records finds. By comparison, all other organizations that primarily advocate for abortion rights collectively spent $247,280 on federal lobbying efforts during the same period.

So, not only does taxpayer money make Planned Parenthood officials RICH FAT CATS, they also expand the coffers of the politicians who support them- see how the cycle works?
