Fifty-year-old Suzanna M. de Baca , whose background is mainly in finance, has accepted the position of president and chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood of the Heartland, effective Sept. 2, 2014.
She is replacing Jill June who, according to the latest 990 from Planned Parenthood for 2012 eared $283,910 plus $12,282 in compensation
According to the Des Moines Register, de Baca’s resume includes a master’s degree from the Harvard School of Business.
Her most recent job was as a vice president of Ameriprise Financial in Minneapolis. She said her experience as an investment adviser is relevant to her new role.
This is not a surprise, since the largest chain of abortion clinics gets half a billion dollars in revenue from the American tax payer while they pay a majority of CEO’s of their hundreds of centers in six-digit salaries.
Iowa Right to Life has pointed out that what Planned Parenthood is all about is the bottom line not women, “For all their bluster about ‘Care, no matter what,’ this selection re-affirms what the abortion giant, Planned Parenthood of the Heartland, truly cares about — money.”
Robert Shaw, a retired physician who is Planned Parenthood of the Heartland’s board chairman, told the Register that the the abortion giant needed a leader with sophisticated understanding of business.
Shaw said de Baca’s financial background was a key attribute.

This was reinforced by de Baca herself who said this in Planned Parenthood’s press release announcing the position, “I hope to bring my corporate experience to this organization as it evolves to meet the ongoing needs of women and families in a changing health care landscape.”
Apparently – the priority here seems to be the bottom line.
