Orlando Woman Fills Trade Post
Idtensohn Brings International Experience To Job
June 26, 1992 | By Jerry Jackson Of The Sentinel Staff
The state Commerce Department this week hired an Orlando businesswoman to head the Division of International Trade and Development in Tallahassee. Susan R. Idtensohn, 46, replaces veteran director Tom Slattery, who is transferring to the division’s office in Brussels, Belgium. Idtensohn is the former executive director of a management training institute in Singapore, an island nation south of Malaysia.
A legacy of care, controversy
As president of Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando, Sue Idtensohn is a tireless champion for women’s health issues.

Even those who love her the most call Sue Idtensohn blunt, stubborn, relentless. But they mean it in the nicest way. Idtensohn — wife, mother and president/CEO of Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando — is, by all accounts, a determined woman … Idtensohn is a tall woman with a head of close-cropped blond curls, a brisk manner and a hearty laugh.

Idtensohn says there’s been a necessary sea change in the way that Planned Parenthood presents itself. After years of trying to distance the organization from the “A” word … it’s now an imperative that the group owns it.
“I think we’re at a real watershed here,” she says. “I think that these kinds of issues are going to pop up. The opposition is really good at messaging, just like Republicans. And we react; we are not proactive.” She points sheepishly at a recent rebranding exercise in which the new tagline for Planned Parenthood is “We’re here,” only half-jokingly adding that it should read, “We’re #$%^&.”
Pro-life picket of Planned Parenthood CEO Susan Idtensohn’s residence – 7/18/2011
TITUSVILLE, FL – This was the first residential picket footage of Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando CEO Susan Idtensohn’s neighborhood on Monday, July 18th, 2011. Idtensohn is the outspoken director of an abortion mill in the heart of the African American community near downtown Orlando. She lives in a lovely, spacious house about 45 minutes away on the Indian River Lagoon overlooking the Kennedy Space Center launch pad.
One police officer knocked on Sue’s door and talked to a neighbor. They left almost immediately after that without talking to us. A reporter for Florida Today came by and wrote a fairly balanced piece on the picket.
In the Florida Today report, Pastor Mark Holick said, “We are here to let the neighborhood and the town know” about Idtensohn’s position with Planned Parenthood, Holick said, discussing the Titusville protest. He said he wants people to “pray for her,” in hopes that she repents.
Idtensohn objected to the picketer’s method of free speech calling it, “confrontational and inflammatory…. We believe in people’s ability to make decisions and have choices.”
We pray that Susan one day will understand the irony of her statement. Susan believes in the “choice” to kill a baby through all nine months of pregnancy for any reason, but does not believe in the right to life for unborn children or the right of Christians to proclaim the Gospel peacefully on public property.
Pro-life picket of Planned Parenthood CEO Susan Idtensohn’s residence – 10/29/2011
TITUSVILLE, FL (FR) – This was the second residential picket of Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando CEO Susan Idtensohn’s neighborhood on Saturday, October 29th, 2011. Idtensohn is the outspoken director of an abortion mill in the heart of the black community near downtown Orlando. She lives in a lovely, spacious house about 45 minutes away on the Indian River Lagoon overlooking the Kennedy Space Center launch pad.
The first Awareness Campaign in Idtensohn’s community was on July 19th 2011.
Peaceful pickets of abortionist’s neighborhoods follow the law and provide a good model of concerned citizens using their first amendment rights to speech, press, assembly, religion and petition.
The highlight of this most recent awareness campaign and picket was the dialog and debate between long-time Melbourne-area pro-life evangelist Frank Campana and a neighbor who spouted every pro-abort cliché in the book. While Campana’s response was boisterous, this contender ironically caused the biggest disturbance to the neighborhood in contrast to the peaceful singing, picketing and praying of 33 Christians on this beautiful fall afternoon from 4 to 6 pm.
The effect of an Awareness Campaign is always to divide the community with strong reactions on either side.
We also met a Jewish Rabbi and his wife who stopped his car and thanked us for what we were doing. His wife took pictures of the procession as Lisa Campana spoke with them.
John Barros and Amber Carroll went door to door and talked to Sue’s neighbors. One of her neighbors who lives directly across the street said that they are Christians and had lived there for many years. They had no idea that Sue kill babies for a living. They said that the Idtensohns seemed like such “nice” people. This happens at every neighborhood awareness event. It is always touching to me to see the hurt looks on Christians’ faces when they realize their neighbor is a baby killer. We tell them to pray for their conversion and true repentance. We ask them to share the love of Jesus.
We heard last summer that Idtensohn was selling her home and planned to move out of state. Some might ask: If she is moving in the near future, was it still an effective picket?
Here is a clip from an article in Orlando Weekly from 2006 that answers that question.
PPGO’s capital campaign continues, with the count currently at $1.9 million — and none of that money has come through federal funding. The funds will be used to open a much-needed facility in Brevard County. After that, it’s on to Osceola and Seminole.
Yes, Planned Parenthood of Orlando, even after Idtensohn’s departure, has plans to open up abortion “super centers” on the Space Coast and throughout central Florida. We also know abortionist James Pendergraft would like to open late term killing places in Cocoa, Florida and elsewhere. But dedicated, gentle Christians will be coming to their communities and preaching the Word of God — that child murder is an abomination that brings a curse on our land.
Of course, articles in the pro-abortion media featuring Sue Idtensohn as a “family planning advocate” never mention the word “abortion.” The lasting legacy for Sue Idtensohn will be that people will remember them not as crusaders for women’s rights, but as child murderers.
Every abortionist, clinic owner and worker in central Florida will have a legacy written in the blood of the innocents. Eventually, no one will desire that legacy, either due to the gift of repentance or simply the shame that comes through having their bloody deeds of darkness exposed. This will come as Christians obey the Ephesians 5:11 mandate: “Have nothing to do with the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.”
