Planned Parenthood's CEO Makes More than Half a Million Annually

June 6, 2014 - 12:40 PM

Planned Parenthood states that "nearly half" its patients "rely on Medicaid" to cover their health costs - yet Planned Parenthood pays its CEO Cecile Richards over half a million dollars.

According to the 990 form which Planned Parenthood is required to file as a "non-profit," Cecile Richards made a cool $523,616 in 2012.

Planned Parenthood received $540.6 million from the U.S. taxpayers that year, but of course Richards says "none of my salary is paid for by the federal government."  That’s pretty fancy accounting.

Supposedly, the mission of Planned Parenthood is to "make health care accessible and affordable," especially to the low-income women they claim to serve.

Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the United States and had a net revenue of $1.21 billion during the same period. Abortion is big, bloody, business, and it looks like it pays handsomely.
