Planned Parenthood is one of the most diabolical organizations on the face of the earth, not only for encouraging young women to murder their child in the womb, but also for selling the body parts of fetuses to line their pockets with a little extra cash.
As if that’s not despicable enough, the country’s leading provider of abortion services is allegedly also extremely hostile toward pregnant employees, which, given how much they hate babies, shouldn’t come as a huge surprise.
Pregnant women who work at Planned Parenthood clinics often face discrimination, pressure to work beyond doctor recommendations, and do not get paid maternity leave, according to The New York Times.
“I believe we must do better than we are now,” Wen said in a statement. “It’s our obligation to do better, for our staff for their families and for our patients.”
What are some examples? Carolina Delgado, a former employee of Planned Parenthood’s Miami office, said women were scared to tell their supervisors they were pregnant.
“It was looked down upon for you to get pregnant,” Delgado told the Times. “I don’t think that any supervisor had to literally say it for us to feel it.”
One former hiring manager told NYT that supervisors openly debated the likelihood that a candidate for a promotion would get pregnant, in violation of the Pregnancy Discrimination Act.
Ta’Lisa Hairston, a former employee at the White Plains, New York, clinic said managers ignored doctor’s notes recommending that she take frequent breaks due to her high blood pressure threatening her pregnancy. Pushed to work hours longer than her doctor said she should, she was placed on bed rest and gave birth via emergency C-section weeks earlier than planned.
Eight weeks into her 12-week leave for the birth, she said Planned Parenthood began calling her urging her to return to work early.
When Planned Parenthood was asked about all of this, Christine Charbonneau, the head of the Planned Parenthood Seattle regional office, said the reason pregnant women aren’t getting paid maternity leave is because they can’t afford to do so.
“It is easy to accuse someone of hypocrisy if you’re not the one trying to find $2 million out of thin air,” Charbonneau said, citing the amount it would cost to provide maternity leave for employees in her region.
At the end of the day, it’s pretty clear that the folks who run this organization hate pregnancy because it goes against their core values, particular the central tenet of killing babies so women can be free of the constraints of motherhood and raising a family.
This is nothing more than their progressive roots showing. Progressives believe the traditional family unit must be undermined and ultimately destroyed, replaced by the state. It’s the only way the elites that run the state can usher in their nightmare vision of a socialistic utopia.
That might sound a little strange, but if you look through the history of progressive belief in America, you’ll see it’s true.
