'That's how we're making our money' - Shocking details behind abortion industry

Former Planned Parenthood director Abby Johnson joined Glenn on his TV show Thursday to share her experience working for an organization now notorious for being accused of selling baby parts harvested from abortions.

Johnson worked at Planned Parenthood for eight years, receiving employee of the year award in 2008. In April of 2009, she sat at the head table of Planned Parenthood's annual gala, with the winner of Planned Parenthood's most prestigious Margaret Sanger Circle Award - Hillary Clinton.

Describing the experience as being on "cloud nine," Johnson told Glenn at the time, she believed what they were doing at Planned Parenthood was to help promote "reproductive rights."

Her perspective started to change in August of that year, when she looked at a budget showing the quota for abortions was doubled from 2009 to 2010.

"I thought there was a mistake," Johnson said. "Here at Planned Parenthood we say that we want to reduce the number of abortions, so why would they double our quota?"

When Johnson approached her supervisor with the question, she said her supervisor started laughing, saying, "That's how we're making our money." She went on.

"We see that clearly just from the testimony that Cecile Richards gave two days ago, where she said 86% of their non-federal revenue is abortion revenue," Johnson said.

Watch the dialogue below.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors.

ABBY: I saw that they had doubled our quota for abortions. We had a quota that we had to meet every month. I saw that they had doubled it from 2009-2010.

I thought well, that must be a mistake because here at Planned Parenthood we say that we want to reduce the number of abortions, so why would they double our quota? That doesn’t make sense. I said that out loud to my supervisor, and she just started laughing. She said why would we want to reduce the number of abortions? That’s how we’re making our money. We see that clearly just from the testimony that Cecile Richards gave two days ago, where she said 86% of their non-federal revenue is abortion revenue.

GLENN: And the rest of their revenue really is kind of, I mean, because don’t you count a lot of things that are associated with the abortions also, separate from the abortion? Aren’t some of the procedures that you do, there’s the abortion you make all that money, but then there’s all the other things that are surrounding that abortion that also make you money, right?

ABBY: Right. So, like the follow-up appointment, that’s going to make us money. If they come in before for pregnancy verification, that’s going to cost, that’s going to make money for us.

GLENN: Most of it is tied in. If 86% is going right to the abortion, maybe another 5% to 10% is the surrounding services?

ABBY: Well, Planned Parenthood is basically willing to be a loss leader in family planning, in their family planning services. They’re willing to lose money there because they make up for it in the cost of the abortions that they provide.

GLENN: How were they suggesting that you double the amount of abortions?

ABBY: Well, like I said, turning every client visit into a revenue generating visit, not letting a pregnant woman walk out the door without selling her on an abortion. And then we started offering free pregnancy tests. We thought if we offer them free pregnancy tests, we’ll see more pregnant women coming in. Planned Parenthood is marketing to these abortion vulnerable women, and they’re doing a very good job at it.

GLENN: Did you know about the selling of the body parts?

ABBY: Yeah, we did that at our clinic.

GLENN: How did you feel about that?

ABBY: At the time, I felt like well, if there’s money to be made, then we should make it. We made $200 per baby that we sent to the lab.

GLENN: Did the moms know you were making money on their babies?

ABBY: No. They did sign a consent, but they didn’t know that we were being compensated $200.

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests? 

Would you feel safe if your child attended a University that allowed pro-Hamas protests?

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
