Planned Parenthood Fires President After She States They Are Too Political

“I believe that the best way to protect abortion care is to be clear that it is not a political issue but a health care one, and that we can expand support for reproductive rights by finding common ground with the large majority of Americans who understand reproductive health care as the fundamental health care that it is,” Wen said Tuesday.

Those were the words of the former President of Planned Parenthood Dr. Leana Wen.

She did not like the direction of Planned Parenthood being used as a political outpolled and wanted it to be more focused on women’s healthcare.

I’m doing so, she was fired for it.

Wen was appointed to the role last September following the departure of former President Cecile Richards, a powerhouse Democratic operative.

But Wen, who was Baltimore’s health commissioner before taking the job, took a different approach, focusing on abortion as a health care issue and not as a political one.
