No, we’re not talking about how Planned Parenthood convinces women to get abortions. Those aren’t the pregnant women Planned Parenthood is mistreating in a new report. We’re talking about their employees. From a Vox report:
“But multiple employees at the nonprofit say that when they were pregnant or had just given birth, they faced workplace discrimination, including bosses who ignored their medical needs, as Natalie Kitroeff and Jessica Silver-Greenberg of the New York Times reported on Thursday. Most Planned Parenthood health centers do not provide paid parental leave for employees, forcing one employee to turn to crowdfunding to pay her baby’s medical bills.”
And the Vox article even references an issue with a Colorado clinic:
“Marissa Hamilton, an employee at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic, had a premature baby boy who required weeks of neonatal intensive care, according to the Times. Because she wasn’t getting paid during her maternity leave, she resorted to setting up a GoFundMe to cover his medical bills.”
Good grief, Planned Parenthood. Give a mom with a sick baby a break. This report comes at a time when Democrats, who are the recipients of approximately 99% of Planned Parenthood political donations, are pushing for paid family leave. The irony couldn’t be richer.
(Planned Parenthood) Doctor, heal thyself.
