Planned Parenthood Fires President for Not Being Political Enough

Planned Parenthood just confirmed that it’s more about big blood money politics than it is about “women’s healthcare,” with its latest move in firing the organization’s president, Leana Wen, just eight months into the job. “Wen had tried to refocus the organization’s mission and image as a health provider offering a wide array of services, including abortions,” insiders told the Washington Post. In other words, Planned Parenthood confirmed that abortion politics is its priority.

Here’s more from National Review…

Planned Parenthood’s board has fired the organization’s president, Leana Wen, after less than a year on the job. According to reports, Wen was dismissed because the board deemed her insufficiently dedicated to expanding Planned Parenthood’s political advocacy, particularly on abortion.

The news comes as a shock for a few reasons. For one thing, Wen was appointed just last fall to replace Cecile Richards, who resigned on good terms after leading the institution for twelve years.

But it’s surprising, too, if Wen’s ouster was due to her reluctance to focus more on politics than on public health, as several reports suggest was the case.
