While speaking at the Democrats for Life of America's annual conference on July 31 in Columbus, Ohio, Mayra Rodriguez – who used to oversee three Arizona clinics – shared how her former employer fired her shortly after she reported unsafe medical practices.
"For 16 years, I devoted my life to Planned Parenthood," Rodriguez told the crowd, according to The Christian Post (CP). "As an undocumented immigrant, Planned Parenthood opened the doors to the American dream. … They hired me knowing I was undocumented."
She explained how the world's largest abortion provider hired her to "attract the undocumented immigrant community," with her initial job focusing on giving women birth control and treating them for sexually transmitted diseases.
The abortion facility – which has been exposed for selling aborted baby body parts in recent years – also reportedly exploits illegals' ignorance about what it really does.
"[The] undocumented immigrant community [knows] nothing about Planned Parenthood – just like I didn't," Rodriguez explained. "[My friends told me] they care for women. … They don't care if you don't have papers – just come work."
Planned Parenthood exposed …
Rodriguez received a promotion and became abortion director at "the biggest [Planned Parenthood] clinic" in the state of Arizona after working 16 years for the company, when she learned about "the deception of Planned Parenthood" concerning abortion.
Now a legal resident of the U.S., Rodriguez shared how foremen in fields frequently rape and impregnate illegal alien female workers and then take them to get abortions at Planned Parenthood, which uses scare tactics to coax the mothers to abort their preborn babies.
"[Planned Parenthood officials tell] immigrants that they're welcome there: 'we won't deport you, we won't call ICE on you," she recounted. "But if you carry your baby and go to the hospital and you live – for example, in Arizona or Ohio or other states where they have very strict anti-undocumented people laws – you may get deported."
This, she explained, was said to make the women think they had little choice.
"So, when you have that, what do women think?" Rodriguez posed. "'Oh, I cannot have a child because I might get deported, and I could get separated from my other three kids.' … As an immigrant, I can tell you it is the worst feeling ever to know that you may have to leave this country."
Killing babies abroad
Planned Parenthood is also said to be lobbying internationally to legalize abortion.
"We are down to six Latin American countries that are still pro-life because the rest of them, they have managed to get inside and affiliate with organizations in those countries and finance them to promote abortion," the pro-life Latino noted.
Rodriguez likened the job she had at Planned Parenthood to being a warden in charge of criminals' lethal injections on death row.
"It takes about 15 to 26 minutes for an abortion," Rodriguez informed. "They suffocate them, and they also inject a saline solution into their heart until their heart stops for 24 hours before they pull them out piece by piece. So, it is a death penalty to the unborn."
Converting from the death side
It was not long after becoming director of abortions that Rodriguez became pro-life.
"I noticed all the atrocities, I noticed the irregularities, I noticed the malpractice, I noticed all the stuff the abortionists at Planned Parenthood hide from people and I complained about it," she continued. "That got me fired and got me set up. Yeah, I was accused falsely of having narcotics in my office while I was out of my office."
She sued Planned Parenthood in 2019 for wrongful termination under the Whistleblower Act and won after being fired in 2017, and she is now serves with And Then There Were None – a pro-life group dedicated to help abortion clinic employees flee the industry.
"[Today, I am] a dedicated pro-life activist [committed to speaking out] against Planned Parenthood and the dangers of abortion – not only nationally but across the globe," she told the pro-life audience. "We need to stop the business of Planned Parenthood – we need to stop the business of other abortionists attacking our women and going after our immigrant communities and minority communities."
She offered this parting advice to the Ohio pro-life advocates.
"We have to change our society – the way we face teen pregnancy," Rodriguez impressed before rebuking the leftist campus and mainstream culture for inundating pregnant teens with "negative comments about maternity, about parenthood … [or] complaining about how horrible it is to have children or how tiring [it is]."
