Victory for life in Arizona!
It’s always been mystifying that a group that exists primarily to slaughter pre-born human babies could call itself Planned Parenthood. The abhorrent concept is analogous to Auschwitz, a notorious Nazi death camp, blandly referring to itself a care center.
There is some good news, however, concerning the abortion mill. LifeSiteNews reports:
An Arizona jury has unanimously awarded $3 million in damages to a former Planned Parenthood director who was fired after reporting an abortionist’s illegal conduct and high complication rates, falsification of affidavits and patient records, incomplete abortions, and failure to report statutory rape.
Mayra Rodriguez, who ran three Planned Parenthood clinics in Arizona and worked for the organization for 17 years, sued after being wrongfully terminated from her position in October 2017 for repeatedly reporting that Planned Parenthood was endangering the health and safety of its patients, according to And Then There Were None (ATTWN), a non-profit that helps former abortion workers leave the industry.
Rodriguez’ lawyer, Tim Casey, hadn’t asked the jury for any dollar amount during the trial. Yet after only three hours of deliberation, the jury unanimously awarded her $3 million in damages following the two-week trial, which ended last Friday, August 16, 2019.
Bryan Howard, president of Planned Parenthood Arizona, was reported to be “disappointed” with the verdict.
Just like Abby Johnson, former Planned Parenthood director turned pro-life advocate, Rodriguez won Employee of the Year the year before she left. Johnson now runs ATTWN.
“I’ve stared down Planned Parenthood in court. I know how hard it is watching your friends lie about you,” said Johnson. “It’s always good to take down Planned Parenthood but it’s not without hurt.”
Johnson’s conversion story is told in the movie. “Unplanned,” which as of August 7, 2019 made $18.9 million after being produced with a $6 million budget, according to boxofficemojo.com. The movie just became available on DVD and was the top selling film on Amazon on the day of its release.
“When Mayra came to And Then There Were None with her incredible story, I felt solidarity with her, having gone through a similar situation when I worked for Planned Parenthood. Standing with her through the trial and rejoicing in the ultimate victory has been amazing,” said Johnson.
The abuses Rodriguez documented are serious. Complications from abortions can result in severe, permanent health problems for women — even death. Incomplete abortions can similarly cause serious health problems for the mothers in whose uteruses parts of their aborted unborn babies are left. ATTWN didn’t specify how old the minor was whose sexual relationship with an adult Planned Parenthood covered up, but the age of consent in Arizona is 18.
And Then There Were None, is a ministry founded by Abby Johnson that has helped more than 500 abortion workers leave their jobs.
Abby Johnson will be the keynote speaker at the next Arizona for Life March & Rally on January 18, 2020. Find out more about Arizona’s biggest pro-life event here.
