Planned Parenthood CEO Tells People to Not Compromise Values for Money, But She Sells Abortions

It’s not publicly known how much Planned Parenthood’s new CEO, Alexis McGill Johnson, makes each year running the billion-dollar abortion chain.

In 2018, former CEO Cecile Richards made a $1 million-plus salary while overseeing the deaths of more than 330,000 unborn babies. Now, Planned Parenthood’s abortion numbers are above 345,000 a year, and its annual reports show record billion-dollar revenues.

Its own employees say money is a key focus of Planned Parenthood leaders.

So the anecdote that Johnson told Elle magazine this week about her “values” seems less than sincere.

Johnson, who has been a leader at Planned Parenthood for about a decade, claimed she does not believe in compromising her values for money.

Asked about the worst career advice she has ever received, she told the magazine:

“A couple of years ago when I was working at Perception, we signed a client, and they weren’t really in it for the right reasons. I was really struggling with how to deliver the right kind of product for them. At some point, someone said, ‘Just take the check. You don’t have to save everybody. Sometimes it’s okay to just take the check.’ The idea of compromising your values for money, it just felt wrong. The advice actually clicked because it was so inconsistent with anything I would have ever said to anyone that it freed me to do the opposite, and realize that I had the power to actually quit my client, which was kind of liberating.”

She made the comment amid growing public complaints from Planned Parenthood staff about salary inequality, racism and leaders who care more about money and power than actually helping women.

“Like many major non-profits, Planned Parenthood seems more concerned with hobnobbing with the powerful, paying the CEOs of its regional chapters salaries in the mid-six figures, making symbolic gestures and coming up with a catchy slogan to sell on T-shirts than with providing care for the people who need their services,” one former employee wrote at The Guardian this week.

Others employees told the New York Times that the abortion chain mistreats and discriminates against its pregnant employees. Most lower-level employees do not get paid maternity leave either, according to the report.

Tennessee Planned Parenthood employees also recently raised concerns about the abortion chain putting money ahead of patients’ well-being. According to the Nashville Scene, their concerns included a potential health hazard: “new management stopped providing doctors with sterile gloves and, staffers say, wanted to use small plastic drinking cups for urine samples.”

These are just complaints from employees. Pro-life advocates, former patients and others also have been working to expose Planned Parenthood’s deadly money-centered practices for years. Through the years, the abortion group has been accused of Medicaid fraud, selling aborted baby body parts, HIPAA violations, failing to report the sexual abuse of minors, deceiving women about their unborn babies and more.

And then there are the abortions it sells. Each abortion kills a unique, living human being – the woman’s own child. Last year, Planned Parenthood reported a record 345,000 abortions while providing fewer actual health care services and seeing fewer patients.

Johnson told Elle that her young children are the reason she fights so hard for Planned Parenthood.

“I have small kids, so any time I’m not working, I’m with them. I think there is some yin and yang to that. The work that I’m doing is literally about fighting for their futures and then to sit back and process with them has been the best balance,” she told the magazine.

But Planned Parenthood does not value children. It literally kills them and makes money off their deaths.
