Presence at abortion clinic makes a difference, former Planned Parenthood manager says

More than 300 people filled the rotunda at the Missouri Capitol in Jefferson City, Mo., for the Missouri Right to Life lobby day. Keynote speaker was Sue Thayer, a former office manager of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Iowa. Conservative talk show host Stacy Washington of “Stacy on the Right” also spoke at the rally.

Jefferson City — The first time Sue Thayer contacted Iowa's right-to-life organization, she called from inside a Planned Parenthood clinic.

For 18 years, Thayer worked at the clinic in Storm Lake, Iowa, starting as an entry-level assistant, rising to office manager. As the years passed, she began to feel that the clinic was motivated by profit, not patients. When the clinic announced it would start offering webcam abortions (a procedure that allows a doctor to remotely administer an abortion-inducing medication), Thayer saw that as her "wake-up call."
