The two latest videos in Live Action's investigation of Planned Parenthood feature testimony from former managers that the organization "treated women like cattle" and prioritized abortion above other services.
"It was a struggle because I felt like Planned Parenthood treated women like cattle," Ramona Treviño, a former Sherman, Texas, Planned Parenthood manager, explained in one video. "We talked about reducing the amount of time that we saw our ... new patients."Treviño said the abortion business shortened initial visits with patients from 30 minutes to 15 minutes.
"When you're dealing with an initial patient, and that time is reduced ... it just seems unethical to not spend that time with your patient and provide the proper care and explanation for something as serious as birth control," which has a low rate of effectiveness and then "the next option for her is abortion," said Treviño.
"Over the years I worked there ... up went abortion goals and all the other goals we were required to meet," Sue Thayer, a former Storm Lake, Iowa, Planned Parenthood manager, told Live Action's Lila Rose in the video. "The nurse practitioner that had been there four days a week was now there two hours a week, but we were still seeing the same amount of clients. It felt wrong."
"Women were just herded through," she said."There was no prenatal care; there was nothing we could offer women who were pregnant" other than abortion, according to Treviño.
