Planned Parenthood abruptly fired its CEO on Tuesday because she apparently did not push abortion politics aggressively enough.
But new reports suggest there may be more to the story.
Two anonymous Planned Parenthood informants accused former CEO Leana Wen of mismanaging the abortion chain and refusing to allow others to control what she said.
One source told BuzzFeed News that Wen refused to use trans-inclusive language. The abortion chain apparently wanted her to say people can get pregnant and have abortions, not women.
Wen reportedly resisted their speech demands, saying the transgender language would isolate people in the Midwest.
Oftentimes we wouldnt know that, say an op-ed she wrote was posting or what she was going to say in a speech until she had already said it, a source told BuzzFeed. S has been crazy.
Conservative Review reports more:
As transgenderism has risen in the national dialogue, so has the discussion about whether or men can get pregnant, given the repeated stories of biological women who have gone through pregnancy after identifying as male.
And other abortion proponents have been quicker to get on board with the idea that men can get pregnant. Back in May, for example, Planned Parenthood of New York City president Laura McQuade called pro-life laws not just an attack on women, but an attack on anyone who can or might get pregnant, including transgender men and gender non-conforming people.
At a recent 2020 Democratic debate, candidate Julian Castro took flak after saying he absolutely would cover abortions for transgender females, who are biological males and cant get pregnant. His campaign later explained that he was talking about biological females identifying as men.
Wen initially referred to philosophical difference as the reason for her being fired. Later Tuesday, however, she released a lengthy statement suggesting that she did not push abortion aggressively enough for the Planned Parenthood board.
For me, as a doctor and a public health leader providing essential primary and preventive care to millions of under-served women and families should always be the driving force of Planned Parenthoods work, she said in a public statement after her firing.
While Wen said she wanted to focus on health care, the new Board leadership has determined that the priority of Planned Parenthood moving forward will be to double down on abortion rights advocacy.
Planned Parenthood is the largest destroyer of unborn babies in America. Its 2018 annual report lists 332,757 abortions, about one third of all abortions in the U.S., and a record $1.66 billion in revenue.
Wen started her job as the CEO of Planned Parenthood last fall and immediately began misleading people about abortions. She quickly called killing babies in abortions lifesaving work.
She came under fire because she, an Asian American, refused to condemn sex selection abortions in her native country of China.
Prior to her employment as CEO, she also volunteered at a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in St Louis, a facility notorious for botched abortions. The abortion facility is so bad that the Missouri State Health Department decided not to renew its abortion license this summer; however, the abortion chain is appealing the decision.
Wen repeatedly claimed that abortion is healthcare and a fundamental human right. She also repeatedly lied about the number of women who died from illegal abortions before Roe v Wade.
Before becoming CEO, Wen served as the Commissioner of Health for the City of Baltimore. In that capacity, she put her pro-abortion views front and center as she attempted to force pro-life pregnancy centers to promote abortions.
never mind I need a shot of Jagermeister
Its heartbreaking the levels of depravity our society has descended into.
And these are the idiots who get mega millions of our taxes.
ITS WRONG WRONG WRONG
The "fight" is over whether such wanna-bes should be characterized as "men". That's just word-play. Although, as Orwell hammered home, word play can be important in shaping thought.
Apparently there are some new letters to add to LGTPQ or whatever...
I think there is now one for questioning your sex or something and another one for who knows. I know because today we saw it on our intercompany website that celebrates any weirdo who might buy shoes.
....Wen reportedly resisted their speech demands, saying the transgender language would isolate people in the Midwest”...
Yes. AND SANE PEOPLE EVERYWHERE :)
These people are loons. How do they avoid poking themselves in the eyes when eating their celery?
She was just living in reality. Unfortunately for her, she was working at the wrong place for that type of thinking.
We live in an asylum.
I, umm, .....
We taxpayers subsidize this nonsense.
Someone please tell these people there IS a Judgement Day. Standing before the Lord as a murderer of His Creation will not be good.
They’ve lost their GD minds...
Bourbon. Go straight for the bourbon.
(A huge Roman amphitheatre, sparsely attended. REG, FRANCIS, STAN and JUDITH
are seated in the stands. They speak conspiratorially.)
Judith: Any Anti-Imperialist group like ours must *reflect* such a
divergence of interests within its power-base.
Francis: I think Judith’s point of view is valid here, Reg, provided the
Movement never forgets that it is the inalienable right of every
Stan: Or woman.
Francis: Or woman...to rid himself—
Stan: Or herself.
Reg: Or herself. Agreed. Thank you, brother.
Stan: Or sister.
Francis: Thank you, brother. Or sister. Where was I?
Reg: I thought you’d finished.
Francis: Oh, did I? Right.
Reg: Furthermore, it is the birthright of every man ...
Stan: Or woman.
Reg: Why don’t you shut up about women, Stan, you’re putting us off.
Stan: Women have a perfect right to play a part in our movement, Reg.
Francis: Why are you always on about women, Stan?
Stan: (pause) I want to be one.
Stan: I want to be a woman. From now on I want you all to call me Loretta.
Stan: It’s my right as a man.
Judith: Why do you want to be Loretta, Stan?
Stan: I want to have babies.
Reg: You want to have babies?!?!?!
Stan: It’s every man’s right to have babies if he wants them.
Reg: But you can’t have babies.
Stan: Don’t you oppress me.
Reg: I’m not oppressing you, Stan — you haven’t got a womb. Where’s the
fetus going to gestate? You going to keep it in a box?
(Stan starts crying.)
Judith: Here! I’ve got an idea. Suppose you agree that he can’t actually
have babies, not having a womb, which is nobody’s fault, not even the
Romans’, but that he can have the *right* to have babies.
Francis: Good idea, Judith. We shall fight the oppressors for your right to
have babies, brother. Sister, sorry.
Reg: (pissed) What’s the *point*?
Reg: What’s the point of fighting for his right to have babies, when he
can’t have babies?
Francis: It is symbolic of our struggle against oppression.
Reg: It’s symbolic of his struggle against reality.
Wow, just how many abortions does PP do on men?

“Planned Parenthood of New York City president Laura McQuade called pro-life laws not just an attack on women, but an attack on anyone who can or might get pregnant, including transgender men and gender non-conforming people.”
Was he/she/it a pretzel after he/she/it wrote this?
Do they think that sentence will bring normal people to the baby killing banner?
That outfit needs to be destroyed.
Sigh.... We watched this recently and then put it on the list of things that could no longer be made in our time....
