Planned Parenthood abortion business CEO Leanna Wen has been fired after just 10 months on the job. The abortion corporation wants a more aggressively pro-abortion activist as its leader as it heads into the crucial 2020 presidential election.
According to the New York Times, the Planned Parenthood board engaged in hours of negotiationsand ultimately canned Wen, citing the need for a more aggressive political leader.
Alexis McGill Johnson has been named as interim president of its political arm Planned Parenthood Action Fund.
I am proud to step in to serve as acting president and facilitate a smooth leadership transition in this critical moment for Planned Parenthood and the patients and communities we serve, McGill Johnson said in a statement. I thank Dr. Wen for her service and her commitment to patients.
In a statement, Len says she is leaving the nations biggest abortion company because she says its too political and not focused enough on healthcare. The decision is somewhat surprising given that the Planned Parenthood abortion business has been doing everything possible to try to make itself appear as a legitimate healthcare organization as opposed to a political abortion corporation in bed with Democrats.
Leading pro-life advocates said the reshuffle at Planned Parenthood wont change their strenuous opposition.
Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins told LifeNews: The musical chairs at the top of the nations number one abortion vendor will not change the pro-life commitment to confronting them in court, in the legislatures and on the campaign trail. Women dont need what Planned Parenthood is selling. Pregnancy is not a disease cured by abortion, and with federally qualified health centers standing by to offer true, full-service healthcare, women have lots of options that dont include abortion.
Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life added: I am not at all surprised that Planned Parenthood apparently wants to replace a leader who is a healthcare professional with someone who is more aggressive politically. They pass themselves off as a healthcare organization, but are instead a political machine pumping tens of millions of dollars into races for radical Democrat candidates who will protect the Planned Parenthood baby-killing agenda.
The 2020 elections have begun, Father Pavone said, what else can Planned Parenthood be expected to do?
Len started her job as the CEO of Planned Parenthood last September and immediately began misleading people about abortions. She quickly called killing babies in abortions lifesaving work.
She immediately came under fire because she is an Asian-American who has refused to condemn sex selection abortions in her native country of China.
She also came under fire because she volunteered at a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in St Louis that has injured over 75 women in botched abortions. The Planned Parenthood Abortion Center is so bad that it failed multiple Missouri State Health Department inspections and its in danger of permanently losing its medical license, an action that would make Missouri the first state in the country to have no operating abortion businesses.
Wen repeatedly claimed that abortion is healthcare and a fundamental human right, something that do the ire of pro-life advocates nationwide who pointed out that killing human beings cant be a human right. She also repeatedly lied about and misled Americans concerning women dying from illegal abortions and inflated figures of the number of women who supposedly died before Roe v Wade.
Before becoming CEO, Wen served as the Commissioner of Health for the City of Baltimore and in that capacity she put her pro-abortion views front and center as she attempted to force pregnancy centers that provide women with abortion alternatives and pregnancy options to promote abortions.
I just learned that the @PPFA Board ended my employment at a secret meeting. We were engaged in good faith negotiations about my departure based on philosophical differences over the direction and future of Planned Parenthood. My statement to come shortly.
Well Dragon Lady Wen ...Now you are Abby Johnson. (said in the voice of Ian Malcolm "now you're John Hammond")
Not enough blood dripping from her hands.
More aggressive?! She wasn’t Mengele enough for those ghouls?
Just what our civilization needs: pre-natal infanticide carried out even MORE “aggressively”.
Looks like they've gone pro-life.
The Devil is getting impatient.
Not enough money delivered to the dimrat party
Pro-life twitter had a lot of fun with Dr. Wen’s “third-trimester termination” today. Rare day of levity for a deadly-serious issue.
Not enough dead babies to satisfy their bloodlust.
Tell you what.....why don’t they just hire Satan himself and be done with it? They work for him anyway, no matter who the CEO is!
Her term was aborted in her 4th trimester
If it is to be believed, (from what I just read on instapundit.com) Wen was fired for not talking about transgendered “women” needing abortions.
Time for the feds to open a grand jury investigation into all of PP’s operations including killing live birth children, mishandling designed federal funds, and lying to Congress and the public.
Do it under the RICO statute, empanel one helluva grand jury, and go to town.
Just how does closure of the ductus Botalli and foramen ovale confer personhood?
If I declare myself a transgendered woman, can I avoid prostate cancer?
Natural Law is not to be mocked.
Much to my surprise, I’m finding myself feeling a touch of sympathy for Dr. Wen, who evidently wanted to take the organization in a more health care oriented direction.
Still, she should have known what she was getting into.
Because it’s abortion uber alles for the American Left.
wtf was the doctor thinking when she looked at the books and realized their money didn’t come from “healthcare”? and why did they hire her if they knew she wasn’t a political person?
After looking at the lady’s CV, I’m wondering if she was on someone else’s payroll in addition to PP....
