The Planned Parenthood abortion business will fire approximately 15% of its staff nationwide as more states pass laws protecting babies from abortion.

Nearly one year after the Dobbs decision allowed states to legally protect unborn children, Planned Parenthood officials say they’re preparing to restructure the organization’s national office and lay off dozens of staff members. About 80 people are expected to be let go as Planned Parenthood cuts 10 to 20% of its employees.

America’s biggest abortion business says it’s going to focus more on helping its local affiliates and more on telehealth – which likely means pushing the dangerous abortion pill. It plans to spend $70 million expanding its 49 affiliates and to “build a powerful movement for abortion access at the local and state level.”

The abortion giant will also start a new initiative to further Margaret Sanger’s goals by promoting abortion more to black women.

And it plans to do even more political advocacy as it continues shifting away from any form of legitimate health and becomes even more of an abortion business than it is now.

“Without question, the world we are living in right now — the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade and the loss of abortion access, the weaponization of our courts and attacks on our democracy, the criminalization of providers and patients, and rampant misinformation — is vastly different than just a decade ago,” Planned Parenthood President and CEO Alexis McGill Johnson said in the statement. “Planned Parenthood must change too.”

“We don’t take this moment lightly. The shifting landscape requires very difficult decisions about the way forward, meaning that some of our fiercest, most incredible staff won’t continue on this journey with us. They will receive financial support and health care coverage, as well as career transition assistance,” she added.

The changes come after 18 states have protected babies from abortion. Most recently, Nebraska passed a 12-week abortion ban as did North Carolina and South Carolina is about to have a new heartbeat law protecting babies when their heartbeats can be detected.
