Former Planned Parenthood manager describes pressuring women into abortions

Former Planned Parenthood clinic worker Sue Thayer describes how she persuaded young women to schedule abortions:

I trained my staff the way that I was trained, which was to really encourage women to choose abortion, to have it at Planned Parenthood, because that counts, you know, towards our goal. We would try to get the appointment scheduled for the abortion before they left our clinic, We would say thinks like ‘your pregnancy test, your visit today, is X number of dollars. How much are you going to be able to pay towards that?’

If they’d say ‘I’m not able to pay today,’ then we would say something like ‘Well, if you can’t pay $10 today, how are you going to take care of a baby? Have you priced diapers? Do you know how much it costs to buy a car seat? Where would you go for help, there’s no place in Storm Lake–or whatever town they were in–you know, where you can get help as a pregnant mom. So really don’t you think your smartest choice is termination?
