The CEO of Planned Parenthood of Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota (PPMNS), Sarah Stoesz, was compensated $488,069 in 2014, making her the second highest paid PP affiliate CEO in the country (the CEO of the Pacific Southwest affiliate made $500,972). This is from a new report by American Life League’s STOPP International (2017 PP CEO Report, www.stopp.org). Stoesz’s salary has steadily increased over the past few years, so one can assume that she makes even more now from an affiliate that kills about 5500 unborn children a year in its abortion mills in St. Paul and Sioux Falls, SD. Interestingly, in contrast to Stoesz’s high-ranking salary, the income of the Minnesota affiliate was 20th in the country at $18,888,507.
The average income of a CEO at one of PP’s 56 affiliates is $237,999, according to STOPP’s report. This puts the average PP CEO in the top five percent of all workers in the U.S. Cecile Richards, CEO of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), made $957,952 in 2015.
Brian Gibson, Executive Director of Pro-Life Action Ministries, commented, “I believe that these outrageously large salaries lend further credence to the fact that Planned Parenthood is not about providing services for the poor, but indeed are all about making a killing off the poor.”
The CEO of Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida (which has abortion mills in many cities, including Orlando and Kissimmee) is Barbara Zdravecky whose compensation was $224,910.
