Former Planned Parenthood medical assistant Ta’Lisa Hairston, recently highlighted in a New York Times expose detailing how she and other pregnant staffers experienced discrimination while working for the abortion corporation, has spoken out in an interview for the first time since the article was published. Hairston told the Times that Planned Parenthood ignored her obstetrician’s orders requiring her to take frequent breaks. Hairston gave birth prematurely and told the Times that just two months later, Planned Parenthood “began calling her at home, telling her to return to work early.” She further describes the harassment and stress she suffered at the hands of her former employer.

In an interview with host Catherine Hadro of EWTN’s Pro-life Weekly, Hairston says Planned Parenthood forced her to work long shifts while she was pregnant, some up to twelve hours, extending to her very few breaks. “I wouldn’t get one or if I did go on lunch, I was pulled out of the lunch room to see patients.”

Hairston developed preeclampsia, a serious condition which can result in complications for mother and baby — even death, if left untreated. “It was so bad that I was put on bed rest multiple times,” Hairston said in her EWTN interview.

Hairston was eventually admitted to the hospital where she swiftly received an emergency C-section to avoid the rupture of her liver.

After just one week, Planned Parenthood claimed it had not received paperwork necessary for Hairston to qualify for federally guaranteed maternity leave. The federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides “certain employees with up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave per year.” Hairston told EWTN:

And I told them that my doctor had sent it… two weeks before when I was placed on immediate bed rest.

And then, shortly after I was getting calls stating that I had to come back to work and my son had just came home from the NICU. He hadn’t even been a month old. And I know with FMLA, like I can stay home for up to three months, (twelve weeks) if you have a C-section. And, it wasn’t even the twelve weeks yet and they were telling me that I had to return to work.

Hairston eventually left Planned Parenthood due to the pressure they were applying.

“It came to an end when I requested for planned family leave… and it’s for bonding with newborns where you can get extra time off and it is paid. I requested that. And two of the women from HR said that I was not eligible for it. I could either do… one week of PTO, thirty days unpaid leave or tender my resignation.”

At this point in the interview, Hairston became emotional, adding, “With all of the stress that I felt… I just felt that it was best to just leave because [of] the way I was treated throughout my whole pregnancy and maternity leave. I couldn’t enjoy my son or get myself better again to take care of him.”

At the end of the interview, Hadro asked Hairston what she would tell other women seeking careers at Planned Parenthood. Her response? “I would tell them to think twice and know exactly what you’re getting yourself into. And I would tell them just turn the other way. There’s better opportunities out there.”

Since leaving Planned Parenthood, Hairston has found a new place of employment that she says she enjoys and where she feels “respected.”

Annette Lancaster, who used to manage a Planned Parenthood facility in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, also spoke on the EWTN program, describing Planned Parenthood’s culture as “very dark.” She said, “One of the things that I spoke out about was that they were very biased towards our pregnant employees.”

Lancaster claimed to have personally witnessed how pregnant staffer members were terminated by Planned Parenthood. “Like I said to the New York Times, if it was one time it would have been coincidence. But the fact that it happened twice was very curious to me…. There is so much that goes on behind the scenes that the American population just does not know.”

Live Action News has detailed additional complaints by Planned Parenthood staffers who say the abortion corporation does not pay a fair wage, prioritizes profit over care, and is a toxic environment.

Planned Parenthood receives half a billion in federal taxpayer dollars annually despite numerous scandals, accusations of fraudthe cover-up of child sexual abuse, and other abuses.

Planned Parenthood, the nation’s top abortion provider holding 35% of the nation’s marketshare in abortions, is not good for the taxpayer. The corporation has a long history of corruption, which abortion-friendly media and politicians willingly overlook. The spin and propaganda regularly disseminated about its abortion business is so pervasive that the truth is often overlooked. Here are some facts, backed up by documented evidence:

And this political organization, like most, works to bring in dollars for political causes. A recent Live Action News analysis showed that the abortion giant’s goal has long been to ramp up its political activities, with former CEO Cecile Richards stating her she wanted to make it “the largest kick butt political organization.” Richards has a background in political organizing — not in health care.

But beyond this, the abortion corporation has a long list of abuses. Here’s a short list:

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

The organization uses its political clout to gain supporters to fuel their agenda. Its own reports reveal:

  • Its “supporters” reportedly grew by 300 percent, increasing from 3 million in 2005 to 12 million by 2018.
  • Private donations increased nearly 106 percent, from $258.7 million in 2006 to $532.7 in 2016.
  • Government funding increased over 61 percent, from $336.7 million in 2006 to $543.7 million in 2016.

And all while it recruits “supporters,” its services to patients (and patient numbers in general) have dropped dramaticallyover the past decade:

  • Breast exams declined nearly 62 percent (882,961 in 2006 to 336,614 in 2016).
  • Pap tests decreased nearly 74 percent (1,070,449 in 2006 to 281,063 in 2016).
  • Cancer screenings plummeted 67 percent (2,007,371 in 2006 to 660,777 in 2016).
  • Contraception services dropped by over 32 percent (3,989,474 in 2006 to 2,701,866 in 2016).
  • The organization’s overall services decreased nearly 10 percent (2006 to 2016).
  • The organization shuttered more than 280 facilities (2007 to 2017).
  • Planned Parenthood lost over 700,000 patients, dropping nearly 23 percent (3.1 million in 2006 to 2.4 million in 2016.)

And in just the past few years:

  • The percentage of the organization’s contraceptive services declined from 34 percent in January of 2014 to 28 percent in January of 2018.
  • The estimated number of unintended pregnancies averted by contraceptive services each year dropped 22.33 percent, from 515,000 in January of 2014 to 400,000 in January of 2018.
  • Between 2014 and 2016, the estimated number of abortions averted by contraceptive services each year declined nearly 9 percent.

According to the organization’s own figures, its abortion market share has increased while the nation’s overall profitable abortions are on a steady decline. Between 2006 and 2016, the corporation’s abortions increased nearly 11 percent, averaging more than 320,000 abortions per year.

This abortion business turns massive profits and should not be taxpayer funded:

  • Between 2006 and 2016, overall taxpayer funding to the corporation increased 61 percent
  • Private donations increased by nearly 106 percent.
  • Excess revenue over spending (profitincreased by 27 percent in just one year, from $77.5 million in 2015 to a whopping $98.5 million in 2016
  • Almost every year since 2000, the organization’s revenue has exceeded expenses by tens of millions of dollars (yearly surpluses range from $12.2 million in 2001 to a high of $155.5 million in 2010).

Since the abortion-friendly media, regularly awarded by Planned Parenthood, refuses to report honestly about the organization, American citizens must say enough is enough. Demand an end to this abortion corporation’s taxpayer funding –permanently.
