A report on how Planned Parenthood spent the $618 million it received from taxpayers in 2020 reveals the abortion clinic chain hires few black executives, and pays them less than white executives even if their clinic brings in more money.
“There is an obvious disparity in the way that Planned Parenthood treats its executives of color,” reports Jim Sedlak, Executive Director of the American Life League and chief author of the 2020 Planned Parenthood CEO Compensation Report. “That’s rather telling for a business with admitted roots in eugenic efforts to keep Black women from reproducing.”
The report finds Planned Parenthood executives are overwhelmingly white and lavishly paid, at taxpayer expense.
Planned Parenthood’s few black executives are paid far less than whites, even if their clinics rake in more cash.
“While Planned Parenthood declares that 39 percent of its customers are people of color, 90 percent of its CEOs are White,” ALL reports.
“Of the 53 chief executives mentioned in the report, 49 are White, three are Black, and two are Latino. One of the three Black CEOs, Kersha Deibel of the Planned Parenthood Southwest Ohio Region, is at $124,045 per year, the lowest paid chief executive in the federation. This, despite her affiliate having an annual income higher than 16 other Planned Parenthood affiliates,” ALL reports.
White executives, however, are paid lavishly – despite the Left’s attacks on CEO pay by other businesses.
“Between 2011 and 2020, the annual average compensation received by the CEOs has risen from $159 thousand to over $300 thousand. One California executive, Darrah DiGiorgio Johnson, head of Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest, Inc., is now being paid $616,926 a year,” ALL reports.
“Despite receiving $618 million in federal, state, and local government funding, Planned Parenthood reported a total profit (income in excess of expenditures) of $425 million over the last three years. This was after paying almost $45 million to its various CEOs and another $15 million to its employees at its national headquarters,” ALL reports.
“This organization, whose executives are comfortably intrenched in the 1 percent, is demanding significant increase in government funding from the Biden administration,” said Sedlak. “Clearly, it is time that the United States Congress remove Planned Parenthood’s ‘charitable organization’ status and quit forcing American taxpayers to fund this profiteering parasite.”
