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.”

  1. LISTEN UP….GOD is Against ABORTIONS. A LIFE is Being RIPPED Out of a WOMAN’S WOMB. ALL LIFE Belongs to GOD. TODAY….TO MMORROW and FOREVER. From SamuraiQueen. 😄😄😄

  2. Is it a surprise that there are few blacks in the organization, or that they are paid less? This is an organization that was founded by an eugenicist to rid the country of the “inferiors” in her view, and I have no doubt that it is still the driving force behind it. The majority of their facilities are in minority locals and they serve mostly black and brown communities with their “services” to the tune of 60+ million homicides, 70% of which are minorities. It is incredible to me that there are so many so ignorant of their origins and their objectives.

  3. I say cut tax-payer funding!!! At least follow Texas’ lead on the ❤️ beat bill. Our country is losing God’s protection due to killing of the most innocent and vulnerable among us!🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 This article does not address this most important issue!!!

  4. Why am I not surprised? If you are not appalled at what you are doing in Planned Parenthood, what’s a little racism going to do to jar your moral comfort?

  5. Planned Parenthood (PPH) is anything but what their name suggests. They are a racist group supported by the dems another racist group. They are baby killers plan and simple. The profit off of people’s pain (we’ll many thimes but there are people that repeatedly use abortion as a means of birth control and those people should be hung).Now of course PPH gives alot of money to the dem party to keep them in power. Now of course that is tax payers money (which I belieeve is illegal to use tax payers money for political parties). oe of this is hard to see. All of these excutives at PPH should be in jail.

  6. Why am I not surprised? If my knowledge of history serves me correctly, Margaret Sanger is the founder of Planned Parenthood and she was convinced that black babies needed to be aborted to control an overpopulation of this race. Appointing black officers would defeat the purpose. Are the likes of Margaret Sanger still in charge?

  7. “Our country is losing God’s protection . . .” because we don’t want Jesus Christ’s guidance and protection, and abortion is just one example. Every society that has adopted homosexuality has been brought to an end. America will be no exception. And America is practicing gross idolatry – we have more false gods than ever. The True Creator God has warned society after society against these sins. They have all refused His way of mercy and grace and are no more.
    When you abandon Christ the only alternative is the devil – look at the condition America is in!
