Woman Awarded $3 Million After Being Fired For Exposing Planned Parenthood's Cruelty

Nearly two years after Mayra Rodriguez sued the abortion provider Planned Parenthood for wrongful termination after she exposed negative health complications for women using their services, a jury awarded the Arizona woman $3 million in damages this past Friday. 


Rodriguez worked for the abortion behemoth for 17 years. In 2017, she  was fired by her employer "after repeatedly making claims that Planned Parenthood was endangering the health and safety of their patients," according to Specifically, Rodriguez reported "high complication rates for one abortionist" and also "exposed the abortionist’s illegal conduct falsification of affidavits and patient records, incomplete abortions, and failure to report a minor who had an adult partner and was a victim of statutory rape." 

Rodriguez, who ran three Planned Parenthood clinics in Arizona, turned to Abby Johnson's "And Then There Were None" non-profit. Johnson, herself a former Planned Parenthood director, started the non-profit to encourage women to leave the abortion industry and reveal the truth about the organization. 

"When Mayra came to And Then There Were None with her incredible story, I felt solidarity with her, having gone through a similar situation when I worked for Planned Parenthood. Standing with her through the trial and rejoicing in the ultimate victory has been amazing," Johnson told

"I hope my case is a lesson to other workers that shows them that the truth will prevail. I also hope my case is a lesson to employers who abuse their power: sometimes the underdog wins and justice will be done," Rodriguez told the press. 


She also stated that Planned Parenthood, in addition to hurting women via abortions, harms immigrants with lies and slander. "Planned Parenthood publicly states they want to help and stand up for immigrants, that they care about these women, but it’s not true. They shamed me for my immigration status,” Rodriguez said. “But here we are, the jury heard the truth." 

Planned Parenthood receives more than $500 million annually from United States' taxpayers for their activities.  But, President Donald J. Trump's administration recently won a significant legal hurdle which allows the federal government to block organizations, like Planned Parenthood, that receive Title X funding from using this money towards abortions. Planned Parenthood receives about $60 million each year from Title X funding.
