No one in the pro-life world has been inside Planned Parenthood longer than Sue Thayer. Having been a Center Manager for nearly 18 years, Sue believed she was helping women. But that all changed when she was informed she would soon be trained to do webcam abortions at her small rural Iowa center. Stunned, her concerns fell on deaf ears. Sue began to see the abortion giant in a new light and ultimately shared her insider’s knowledge. Sue’s vast experience in the abortion industry, coupled with her changed heart and bold faith, has led to a whistle-blower lawsuit, currently in litigation.
Sue went on to lead Storm Lake’s first ever 40 Days for Life campaign at the very clinic she supervised for so many years. Shortly after completing the prayer vigil, Storm Lake Planned Parenthood became the first of 21 Iowa facilities to close forever.
Sue shares her miraculous conversion with honesty, transparency, and humor. Having been a foster and adoptive parent for 32 years, she has an amazing love for children. She is the founder and former director of Cornerstone For Life Pregnancy Resource Center and now works as Director of Outreach for 40 Days for Life. Sue has truly come full circle and is proof that God can save and use anyone.
"Sue is wonderful to work with and really did her best to make sure our events were successful. Her story is so powerful – she had our guests near tears at some moments and laughing at others! She really is a dynamic speaker. We recently had her at a fundraising event in Eau Claire - we had our biggest guest turnout and it was also the most financially successful event we have ever had there! We are really looking forward to having her at more events next year! I seriously cannot say enough great things about Sue."
"We learned so much about Planned Parenthood from Sue and she was so humble in her presentation for having such an inside scoop of the abortion industry. I would recommend her to be a speaker in a heartbeat. She is so down to earth and easy to listen to. Her story needs to be shared with everybody. Her presentation is so interesting an hour can go by in a flash."
"Sue’s story helped shed light on many of the details inside Planned Parenthood, about webcam abortions, shady billing methods, and the corrupt structure of the abortion industry. Sue also has a personable and pleasant way telling her story I think my favorite part was the story about the homeschooler that organized a march for life as a school assignment."
