A new video released by pro-life group Live Action reveals that Planned Parenthood has always been imposing abortion quotas on its clinics nationwide, incentivizing its workers to convince women to terminate their pregnancies.
The House last week passed a bill to divert $500 million in government funding from Planned Parenthood to thousands of healthcare centers across the country that don't perform abortion, and two senators introduced a similar version of the bill this week.
Lauren Hany of Normal and Melle Hany of Bloomington said they originally planned to gather a small group of friends to back Planned Parenthood services, but after making the event public on Facebook, interest skyrocketed to 1,200 people.
Planned Parenthood frequently pressures women on Medicaid, who are living at or close to the poverty line, to pay for half of the cost of their visits.
"I felt like I was more of a salesman sometimes, to sell abortions", Ms. Anderson says in the video.
This video, "Planned Parenthood's Abortion Quotas", is the fourth in Live Action's series "Abortion Corporation". Organizers say taxpayer dollars that go to Planned Parenthood would be better spent with facilities that don't offer services such as abortions.
And in the wake of a series of undercover videos that hit the abortion industry a year ago, 15 other states moved to defund Planned Parenthood. "We were told on a regular basis that we had a quota to meet to keep this clinic open".

During the phone call , Trump reportedly said that it was "the worst by far" of his multiple calls with world leaders that day. He also publicly highlighted Australia's long history with United States troops in wars across the world.
The bill would fund women's health services, including diagnostic laboratory and radiology services, prenatal and postnatal care, immunizations and cervical and breast cancer screenings, Lankford's office said.
Thayer also said she trained her staff the same way she was trained: "to really encourage women to choose abortion, to have it at Planned Parenthood because it counts towards our goal".
Until Planned Parenthood stops harming babies, and their mothers, they shouldn't receive any taxpayer funding.
On February 11, pro-life advocates plan to protest outside of Planned Parenthood locations nationwide to support Republican-led efforts to defund the nation's largest abortion provider.
Which is followed by a statement from Planned Parenthood in Athens, Ohio: "No, we wouldn't provide any pre-type of prenatal services".
"We as a pro-life community honor the civil liberties, independence and strength of a woman - all women", Ernst said at the March for Life Jan. 27.
Thayer explained that her clinic and others in Iowa received prizes like pizza parties or lunches with Planned Parenthood "upper management" officials as incentives for employees to do all they can to help the clinic meet its abortion "goal".
