"I trained my staff the way that I was trained, which was to really encourage women to choose abortion, to have it at Planned Parenthood, because that counts toward our goal". It is at conception for the anti-abortionists, and for pro-choice supporters it is either when an embryo becomes a fetus (occurring the earliest at the end of the first trimester) or when capable of sustaining life independently, at about 24 weeks.
The latest video in Live Action's new investigative series of Planned Parenthood reveals the company rewards its centers with pizza parties for meeting abortion sales quotas - and institutes a "corrective action plan" when they don't.

One of President Trump's pro-life promises during his campaign was that he will defund Planned Parenthood as long as it continues to commit abortions. They want women to panic, to despair, in order to profit off of it.
If Planned Parenthood is anxious about its funding being reassigned to organizations that do not perform abortions, and if abortions are only a small part of what it does, the easy solution would be for Planned Parenthood to stop performing abortions.

"If you don't meet your quota, people get fired and you don't get your big bonus".
Johnson was asked if Planned Parenthood would fire employees after one month of not hitting quotas or several. "It depends on the clinic", Johnson said. That was after probably about two to three months, they started cutting people. "'We can take care of that, set it up for you'".
