A former Planned Parenthood clinic director who left the organization to become a pro-life activist responded Wednesday on Fox News @ Night to a New York Times report alleging that PP discriminated against pregnant employees.
Planned Parenthood managers “in some locations declined to hire pregnant job candidates, refused requests by expecting mothers to take breaks and in some cases pushed them out of their jobs after they gave birth,” the report stated.
Former PP Director Abby Johnson said the organization does not offer paid maternity leave or paternity leave for employees. “It’s not surprising,” she said. “Planned Parenthood is not an organization that values mothers, women or children. Of course they’re not going to put forward polices that would actually protect women during that vulnerable time after child birth.”
