On March 28, 2011, the Susan B. Anthony List launched of a $100,000 radio ad campaign in Washington, D.C. featuring former Planned Parenthood Clinic Director Abby Johnson exposing the true corporate realities behind Planned Parenthood’s business model, one which requires an “abortion quota” to increase revenue. The ad is hitting D.C. airwaves on WTOP-AM and WMAL-AM as Congress comes under increasing pressure to strip Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer funding in the Continuing Resolution.
“There is no better testament to why Planned Parenthood must be defunded than the account of a former insider whose life work is to serve women and saw first-hand how it exploits them,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List. “She found out the hard way that Planned Parenthood hides its true mission and deceives the public about its health services. If this Congress cannot find the moral courage to relieve taxpayers of the burden this scandal-plagued organization places upon them, it is not serious about budget reform.”
The partial script reads:
Abby: There are myths about Planned Parenthood that are spread wildly and one of those is that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms…but Planned Parenthood does not provide mammograms at any of their clinics.
Announcer: Abby Johnson tells the truth about Planned Parenthood.
Abby: Well, the bottom line about Planned Parenthood is that it’s about all the numbers….there is an abortion quota.
You do have to perform so many abortions on women every month, and that is how they come up with their budget.
And I know this is true because I worked there for 8 years.
98 percent of Planned Parenthood services to pregnant women are abortion services.
There is only money for Planned Parenthood in abortion services.
