The Abortion In Washington blog covered this very well. (reprinted with permission)
Below is a listing of the salaries for some of the top employees of Washington's largest chain of abortion centers -- Planned Parentood -- and the Cedar River Clinic. Remember your tax dollars go to pay the salaries of these people, which makes them essentially sub-contractors for the state.
Wow. Look at those numbers! We've got a suggested recruitment tagline for the local abortion industry: "It may be killing, but it's one heck of a living!"

Isn't it time to get the profit motive out of the abortion industry? All of the above are "non-profits". Just how much sacrifice do you think is involved for these individuals? Do we really want a society where an individual can make a very comfortable full-time career doing (or arranging) abortions?
NOTE: All salaries include benefit plan contributions, not just salary total compensation. Numbers are from 2005 and 2006. Names in blood red are for those we know or are almost certain are actually involved in bringing beautiful, innocent lives to an end with their own hands.
