Planned Parenthood has monthly minimum quotas, pressures vulnerable young women to have abortions, and conducts procedures solely for the sake of profit-making, says a former employee of the pro-choice organization.

In an interview with The Criterion, a publication of the Catholic archdiocese of Indianapolis that says it is "Indiana's largest weekly newspaper," registered nurse Marianne Anderson described a litany of abuses she said she witnessed in her two years at the state's largest abortion facility, including accounts of insensitive and abusive behavior by abortion doctors.

"It was a money-grubbing, evil, very sad, sad place to work. I was always getting in trouble for talking too long to the girls, asking if they were sure they wanted to do this," Anderson said.

"You have to have so many [abortions] a month to stay open," she said. "In our meetings they'd tell us, 'If abortions are down, you could get sent home early and not get as many hours.'"

Anderson said she saw many women pressured into abortions they did not want, and detailed a number of instances in which minors were taken to the facility without a say or full knowledge of what they were facing.

"One young girl came in with her mom. She was about 16. Her mom had made the appointment. That's not supposed to be how it works. It's supposed to be the patient who makes the appointment. I checked her in, and she thought she was there for a prenatal checkup. The mom was pushing it. She blindsided her own daughter," she said.

Anderson also recalled one doctor at the facility talking to aborted fetuses, and recounted him saying, "Come on, little arm, I know you're here! Now you stop hiding from me!"

Anderson said that she took the job because she believed it was important for women to have a safe place to have abortions, but soon thereafter had a hard time coping with what she witnessed.

"The sound the suction machine made when it turned on still haunts me," she said, adding her overall experience of working for Planned Parenthood was "absolutely miserable."

Anderson, who was fired by Planned Parenthood in July 2012, has since become pro-life and works as a nurse at a hospital. She plans to become a "sidewalk counselor," praying for women considering abortion and working to convince those visiting the organization not to have the procedure.
