Sue Thayer: Planned Parenthood views ‘a woman’s body as a profit center’

Former Planned Parenthood abortion clinic manager Sue Thayer testified before Congress about the abuses she saw during her time at Planned Parenthood, detailing how Planned Parenthood pushed her clinic into doing abortions and described how she was told that doing the ultrasound preparing for the abortion was just like “playing a video game.”

“No business, certainly no healthcare clinic, should view a woman’s body as a profit center, yet that is exactly what Planned Parenthood does. I want to share with you just a little of my own experience about how Planned Parenthood is focused more on its bottom line than the women it claims to serve,” Thayer said early in her statement.

She then shifts into the details and personal revelation of the organization.

“One of the first times that I saw the truth about Planned Parenthood was in 2002 when a recycling center in my small Iowa town discovered the remains of a newborn child. The Sheriff came to my clinic, seeking records of women who may have been the mother of this child who was born alive and killed. This was not an abortion. It was a murder investigation. So, maybe naively, I thought Planned Parenthood would want to cooperate. Instead, Planned Parenthood leadership saw this as a fundraising opportunity….Rather than trying to quietly deal with this very sad story, leadership leaked it to the Des Moines Register and capitalized on it, making claims in the media that I knew were completely wrong but which kept the money coming in from around the country to fight this imaginary injustice.”

“A mother killed her born alive child and Planned Parenthood was more interested in profiting off the attention than helping to solve the crime.”

The committee has been investigating the abortion giant’s practices ever since the Center for Medical Progress released numerous undercover videos that reveal what appears to be Planned Parenthood’s involvement in the trafficking of fetal baby parts – videos that a forensic report last week found are “authentic and show no evidence of manipulation….”

Trayer: “They solved the problem of needing to determine gestational age of the unborn child by having non-medical staff perform transvaginal ultrasounds
with minimal training. In response to our concerns, the project manager, Todd Buhacker, told us, ‘If you are breathing, you can do this. It helps if
you’ve played a video game. It’s just like running a joystick.'”

“The doctor would then push a button and a drawer would open with the first abortion pill. She would then take the second pill at home, completing the abortion. We were told to tell women who experienced complications at home to report to the ER and just say they were having a miscarriage. This avoided attention from the local medical community when we would be outsourcing complications to others. Planned Parenthood cut costs to the bone by performing abortions on a shoestring budget with little medical involvement.”

Slate attacked Trayer and her testimony as “dodgy” saying that “her testimony didn’t so much expose Planned Parenthood as it revealed the very low evidentiary standards of those who seek to destroy it.”

Her story is the same, here in 2012 Trayer exposes the abortion corruption: “My superiors justified telemed abortions, lauding the financial benefits of not having to worry about or pay for specialized equipment, staff and a traveling physician – all required with surgical abortions.”
