Our friend, Sue Thayer, a former director at Planned Parenthood Iowa spoke to us at the #FirestormMN rally on 9-9-15. We were so thankful to have her!
Sue worked at Planned Parenthood for 17 years before leaving. Now, she is an outspoken pro-life advocate, particularly warning of the dangers of webcam abortions, which are legal in only 2 states--Iowa and Minnesota. Sue is also involved in ongoing litigation against Planned Parenthood Iowa. Through our legal allies at Alliance Defending Freedom, Sue filed a whistle-blower lawsuit against Planned Parenthood for Medicaid fraud.
These are highlights from her remarks:
"Just that I'm up here tells us 2 things about God:
1. He forgives. And if He can forgive me, He can forgive anyone.
2. He has a sense of humor...
I watched 25-30 abortions in my first day at Planned Parenthood. I was told to stand against the wall because I might faint...
Back in 1991, they used to just flush the babies' parts down the sink.
Then, in 2007, Planned Parenthood Iowa came up with the webcam abortion. The first set of pills you take kills the baby. The second set, taken at home alone, starts the contractions. Women don't realize they will probably see the baby come out. I was sworn to secrecy about the webcam abortions.
Planned Parenthood wanted to do 500-1000 of them before anyone found out. Webcam abortions cost the same as surgical abortions, so it's a big money-maker for Planned Parenthood.
Did you know MN & IA are the ONLY 2 states in the nation that permit webcam abortions?
