Pro-Life This Week: June 16, 2023

On June 16 we celebrate the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. In this month dedicated to Our Lord’s most sacred heart, it seems everywhere you look there is a rainbow flag. What if, instead of pride flags, our neighborhoods were covered in Sacred Heart flags?

ALL encourages each of you to counter the so-called pride month by placing something outside your home such as a flag celebrating the Sacred Heart of Jesus. 

Many options exist online, such as this one from Angelus Press or handmade options from the website Etsy.

Share on social media how you and your family celebrate Our Lord this month, and tag us on Instagram @americanlifeleague.

Week in Review – Annual Planned Parenthood CEO Report Drops Via Fox News

This week, the annual report on Planned Parenthood affiliate CEO salaries dropped via Fox News. American Life League’s STOPP International has spent the last few months compiling data from the new report and its findings are officially public. 

Rita Diller, STOPP’s interim director, compiled an abbreviated version of the report’s findings in this week’s Wednesday STOPP Report, which is featured below. 

Planned Parenthood Structure

Planned Parenthood is structured much like a franchise operation. The entity overseeing the nationwide operation is the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. It is headquartered in New York City and has offices in Washington, DC, and regional offices around the country. PPFA does not operate any medical centers.

All the Planned Parenthood “medical centers” are operated by separately incorporated entities, which Planned Parenthood calls affiliates. Each affiliate (franchise) has its own board of directors and corporate officers, including a president/CEO. Each affiliate files its own Form 990 with the federal government, and we use those forms to gather financial information about each affiliate. PPFA and each of its affiliates are recognized by the federal government as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and they pay no taxes even though they have millions of dollars of income in excess of expenses each year. Each also has a chief executive officer. The purpose of the CEO report is to document the compensation paid to these CEOs based on the latest information available.

Planned Parenthood continues, year after year, to dramatically increase the salaries of its affiliate corporation CEOs and its New York headquarters staff while continually crying poverty and seeking and receiving more and more taxpayer money. In the report we examine the latest numbers available from Planned Parenthood affiliates across the nation—with the majority reporting their fiscal year ending in 2020, and the remainder split between fiscal years ending in 2019 and 2021. Our research was conducted in March 2023. Here is what we found based on the latest numbers available.

Planned Parenthood Affiliates
  • The average compensation for a CEO at Planned Parenthood rose from $237,999 in 2015 to $317,564 in 2020 (a 33.4% increase in five years). Compare that to the average wage for US workers in 2020, which was $55,629—a 15.6% increase in five years.
  • The average Planned Parenthood CEO is among the 98th percentile of US wage earners.
  • The lowest compensation for a Planned Parenthood CEO was $124,045, putting her in the 89th percentile of US earners.
  • The highest compensation for a Planned Parenthood CEO was $616,926, putting her in the 99th percentile of US earners.
  • The total compensation paid to all Planned Parenthood affiliate CEOs increased from $13.3 million in 2015 to $16.8 million in 2020—a 26.3% increase.
Race and Compensation Inequity
  • Of the 53 Planned Parenthood CEOs at the affiliate level, only four were black. The lowest paid CEO was a black woman. Interestingly, she was paid less than the CEOs of 16 PPFA affiliates that produced less income than the one she presided over. The Planned Parenthood facility she operated was number 36 on the income producing list of 53 PP affiliates, yet she was Planned Parenthood’s lowest paid CEO.
  • We were able to identify only three CEOs as Hispanic. Only 13 percent of Planned Parenthood CEOs were people of color.
  • See Page 8 of our full report, which is shaded to illustrate the disparity in race, gender, and salary of Planned Parenthood’s CEOs.
Planned Parenthood admits structural racism and white supremacy.

Planned Parenthood says its affiliates provide “services” to “more than 573,000 patients who identify as Latino and nearly 350,000 patients who identify as black.” That is just under a million minorities being targeted with Planned Parenthood abortion and birth control. Add to that the hundreds of thousands of black and Latino youth targeted by Planned Parenthood’s pleasure-based sex indoctrination through community- and school-based programs and the Internet who would not be listed among PP’s clients, and you have the PP recipe for inundating and decimating minority populations—headed by 46 white Planned Parenthood CEOs and just seven non-white leaders.

In fact, Planned Parenthood was birthed from the eugenics movement and since 2020 has openly admitted that its internal operations are intrinsically racist.

  • Admissions from Planned Parenthood in 30 states include this zinger from Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette: “Planned Parenthood is steeped with our own structural racism and white supremacy.” (Excerpted from Planned Parenthood’s Racism…In Their Own Words, ALL 2020.)
  • In October 2022, Nicole Moore, a black woman and a former Planned Parenthood director of multicultural brand engagement, filed a federal lawsuit against PP. According to an NPR report, the lawsuit stated that “despite her positive contributions to the [Planned Parenthood] team, she was constantly humiliated in front of colleagues, given excessive workloads and punished for bringing attention to racism within the company.” 
  • Moore’s complaint continued: “While Planned Parenthood has publicly boasted its commitment to racial equality, the organization—whose tagline is ‘Care. No matter what’—has blatantly ignored reports by dozens of its black employees of systemic unequal hiring and promotion, more work for lower pay, overt hostility, and trafficking in stereotypes by leadership.”
PPFA Headquarters

Planned Parenthood Federation of America headquarters in New York released its 2020-2021 salary compensation numbers for its top executives just weeks before this report was published. We include here those just-released numbers.

  • The average compensation for top executives at Planned Parenthood Federation of America headquarters went from $237,999 in 2015 to $421,713 in 2021—a whopping 77% increase. 
  • Alexis McGill Johnson, the highest paid executive at the national organization, made $683,697 in her position as president. Second highest pay went to Kimberly Custer, with $519,626 for her job as executive VP of healthcare. Jethro Miller received $510,887 as chief development officer. 
  • The combined 2021 compensation for the top 13 PPFA employees was $5.48 million dollars—an average of $421,713 annually. Compare that to the income of Planned Parenthood’s targeted poverty-stricken customers. According to Planned Parenthood, “nearly 70% live with incomes at or below 150% of the federal poverty level, the equivalent of $39,300 a year for a family of four.”

ALL Renews Its Call for an End to Charitable Organization Status and Taxpayer Funding of Planned Parenthood

The exorbitant salaries of most Planned Parenthood affiliate CEOs and headquarters executives, and the disparity in salaries by gender and race, are even more revealing once you see that Planned Parenthood—organized as a nonprofit that pays no taxes—reported total profit (income in excess of expenditures) of $408 million over the past three reporting years. This “nonprofit” also reported an income of $5.2 billion over the past three years. Included in that amount is $1.9 billion in government health services grants and reimbursements. (Source: Planned Parenthood Federation of America Annual Reports: 2019, 2020, 2021.)

Taxpayers have every reason to decry the billions of dollars of taxpayer money being funneled into the nation’s largest abortion chain, and the number one reason is the slaughter by Planned Parenthood of 1,112,486 innocent babies during the same three-year period. Clearly, it is far past time for Congress to remove Planned Parenthood’s “charitable organization” status and end the forcing of all American citizens to fund this mega-profitable abortion mogul that so greedily lines the pockets of its CEOs with blood money of innocent children along with millions of taxpayers’ hard-earned dollars each and every year.

Crazed feminists have done a bang-up job of undermining masculinity, femininity, and the family. Now that the Marxists are done with them, it’s time to cancel them. In the meantime, most men are still allowed to be men so long as they’re not pretending to be women and crushing women in sports. Authentic manhood still has its defenders like Hugh Brown, who joins Timmerie on Relevant Radio to discuss what it takes for men to marry young, be a good father, and keep the family together.
