WASHINGTON, DC – In her first interview as interim CEO of Planned Parenthood, Alexis McGill Johnson said her organization is “proudly” pro-abortion.

Johnson took over the billion-dollar “nonprofit” earlier this month after its board abruptly kicked out CEO Leana Wen. Apparently, Wen “did not prioritize abortion enough.” Instead, she tried to focus on providing a broad range of health care.

In her interview this week with CBS News, Johnson tried to deflect from Wen’s revelations by insisting that Planned Parenthood is primarily a health care provider. However, she also insisted that abortion (the killing of unborn babies) is health care, and they are proud to provide it.

“I’m the face of an organization that stands up for people who need access to sexual and reproductive health care. And I stand proudly in saying that. And I stand proudly in saying that reproductive health care and sexual freedom should include abortion,” Johnson said. “I think we need to take away the stigma from thinking about abortion as anything other than basic health care.”

The problem is that most Americans do not think of abortions as health care, and Planned Parenthood knows it. It knows its taxpayer funding would be in jeopardy if people realize its true goals. So it uses cleverly-crafted rhetoric to tone down its abortion focus.
