Former Planned Parenthood health center manager Sue Thayer was a sex-ed teacher and came on board with Planned Parenthood thinking that they would help her spread a simple message of “safe sex.” But the deeper she got behind Planned Parenthood’s flashy veneer, the more troubled she became.
Thayer eventually saw how Planned Parenthood pushed abortions with a monthly quota that her clinic had to meet and she saw how abortions were damaging women. Sue quit her job at Planned Parenthood and began a journey that would lead to the closing of the health center she once managed.
Now, Thayer is working for a pro-life group in the same state — Iowa — where she once peddled Planned Parenthood’s agenda.
“Iowa Right to Life is pleased to announce that Sue Thayer, former Iowa Planned Parenthood center manager, has joined our staff! Sue now serves as our Lead Strategist,” the pro-life group Iowa Right to Life informed LifeNews.com today.
“Sue Thayer is no stranger to Iowa Right to Life. She first called our organization anonymously several years ago. During that phone call, Sue shared her horror over Planned Parenthood of the Heartland’s latest scheme-webcam abortions,” Iowa Right to Life said. “Upon her refusal to perform dangerous webcam abortions, she was fired. She is currently embroiled in a $5.5 billion Medicaid lawsuit against her former employer, Planned Parenthood of Heartland.”
“Since her firing, she has gone on to become a leading statewide and national Pro-Life leader. She tirelessly speaks the truth about the dangers of the abortion industry and how Iowa’s Planned Parenthood has gone to great lengths to deceive women,” IRTL said.
“Sue Thayer is truly a remarkable woman. If not for her courage, webcam abortions would have exploded across Iowa and throughout the nation,” stated Jenifer Bowen, Executive Director of Iowa Right to Life. “Instead we have seen their plan begin to implode.

“Since 2012, we have seen Planned Parenthood of the Heartland shrink from 26 locations down to 13. They also never opened any of the 6 additional locations they announced in 2011. Further, we have seen Iowa abortion rates plummet 40% since 2007. Iowa Right to Life is thrilled to partner with Sue Thayer. With her knowledge of the Iowa abortion industry and her boundless passion for all human lives, born and unborn, we will continue to see even more great victories for life,” concluded Bowen.

“No person, no business should view a woman’s body as a profit center, yet that is exactly what Planned Parenthood does,” Thayer wrote recently in an opinion column for The Des Moines Register. “As the former director of two Planned Parenthood clinics in Iowa, I know first-hand how massive are the profits and how terrible are the costs generated by their predatory practices on women and girls. And all the while, our tax dollars have been helping them do it.”
