Cosmo Teaches Readers How to Get a Job at a Planned Parenthood Abortion Clinic

The women’s magazine, Cosmopolitan, promotes abortion-on-demand every chance they get; and their writers are primarily, dare I say it, abortion extremists.

For example, in 2013, a writer for the magazine spoke before the Texas Legislature about a woman who chose to abort her baby because she had Spina Bifida. Her purpose in testifying was to oppose the state’s new protections for pain-capable unborn babies. Even though 64% of American’s support legislation that would protect unborn children from painful dismemberment abortions, Cosmo and their writers think that proposition is absurd.

cosmo11Unfortunately, this is only one example of how radical their views are when it comes to abortion. The magazine has done everything from promote pro-abortion candidates and complain about pro-life laws, to rally support for Planned Parenthood and share how abortion can “strengthen” relationships. That’s why it should come as no surprise that now are telling their readers how to get a job at Planned Parenthood.

In the online article, Interview Insider: How to Get a Job at Planned Parenthood, the author describes the abortion empire as the nation’s largest provider of “reproductive health care and sex education,” that’s often on the front lines of political debates surrounding abortion access and “health care” legislation. Then she shares an interview she conducted with a current human resources employee at the abortion chain, Gaitre Lorick. Lorick shares tips on how someone can get employed at Planned Parenthood and what interns do when they are hired.

Here are a few questions from the interview:

Can you give a snapshot of what the intern experience is like?

Each intern has the option of deciding whether they’d like their internship to be paid or for college credit. Each intern is paired with a mentor, and they visit at least one affiliate office during the summer. And all interns have lunch with our president, Cecile Richards.

Do most full-time positions require a specific degree?

We have staff who have worked at hospital systems, schools, magazines, political campaigns, congressional offices, and technology companies. Of course there are positions that do require specific degrees, such as legal and medical professionals. And some teams require technical skills where a degree may certainly be helpful but isn’t necessary, such as our finance team or our information services and online teams.

What types of questions do you typically ask in an interview?

Everyone has a story of how they became interested in working for Planned Parenthood, and we love to hear what that was. We also like to get a sense of how they work with others. So we’ll ask, “How would former or current coworkers describe you?” We also ask questions about the pace of work that they’re used to. At Planned Parenthood, we’re often in the center of the national political debate and also on the cutting edge of new health care innovations. It’s incredibly exciting and enormously rewarding, but it’s not always on a nine-to-five schedule — and it’s never, ever slow.

Well, isn’t that great news; our young adults are getting one-on-one advice from Cecile Richards, the president of the largest abortion business in America. I bet Planned Parenthood’s interns don’t find out from Richards about the 330,000 plus babies they kill annually or about their policy that requires employees to implement abortion quotas at abortion facilities.

As LifeNews previously reported, in 2013, Planned Parenthood performed 327,653 abortions, a slight increase from 2012 (327,166). Susan B. Anthony List, a group dedicated to helping elect pro-life women to Congress, shared more about their activities in 2013.

“Over the past three reported years (2011-2013), Planned Parenthood has performed nearly one million abortions (988,783). In 2013, abortions made up 94% of Planned Parenthood’s pregnancy services, while prenatal care and adoption referrals accounted for only 5% (18,684) and 0.5% (1,880), respectively. While abortions rose slightly, adoption referrals by Planned Parenthood dropped 14% in one year, and prenatal care services dropped 4%. Planned Parenthood’s cancer prevention services are down 17% over one year, and contraceptive services dropped by 4%.”
