Judge Upholds David Daleiden’s 1st Amendment Right to Expose Planned Parenthood Aborted Baby Part Sales, by Steven ErteltJuly 19, 2019
It’s clear that Wen’s removal is a backhanded compliment to the pro-life movement and its recent successes.
By Joan Desmond, National Catholic Register, 7/19/19
After years of spin and obfuscation, the unexpected firing of Dr. Leana Wen, Planned Parenthood’s CEO, exposed the real mission and priorities of the nation’s largest abortion provider.
Yesterday, a New York Times report on Wen’s ouster offered illuminating details that contradicted Planned Parenthood’s savvy public strategy, which downplayed the issue of abortion activism, and made the provision of “comprehensive health care” to low-income women the focus of its concern.
“The new board leadership has determined that the priority of Planned Parenthood moving forward is to double down on abortion rights advocacy,” Dr. Wen explained in a memo to the staff.
The Times reported that Dr. Wen began to make waves after “she directed her staff to add new pages to the Planned Parenthood website about topics like asthma and the common cold — conditions that its clinics do not typically treat. One of her first major campaigns was simply called, ‘This is health care.’”
