Leana Wen Booted from Planned Parenthood
I can't imagine what this portends for how radical they wish their agenda to be. Imagine, a doctor refusing to say that men can have babies.
As reported by The Daily Wire on Tuesday, the country's largest abortion provider abruptly kicked president Leana Wen to the curb after just 10 months at the helm reportedly because Wen refused to say men can get pregnant and wasn't aggressive enough pushing the life-ending procedure.
"Two sources told us that Wen also refused to use 'trans-inclusive' language, for example saying 'people' instead of 'women,' telling staff that she believed talking about transgender issues would 'isolate people in the Midwest,'" BuzzFeed News reporter Ema O'Connor said via Twitter Tuesday evening."
O’Connor also reported that “Wen sometimes went through [Planned Parenthood]’s press releases and docs, deleting the word ‘sexual’ from the phrase ‘sexual and reproductive health,’ the source said. She also resisted using ‘abortion’ as a stand-alone, preferring ‘abortion care’ or other phrases entirely.”
According to a tweet from Wen, she was let go for “philosophical differences” and said she would soon be out with a statement elaborating on the departure.
“I just learned that the [Planned Parenthood Federal Action Fund] 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,” the canned president posted. “My statement to come shortly.”
According to a report from The New York Times, sources claimed “there had been internal strife over [Wen’s] management, and that the group felt it needed a more aggressive political leader to fight the efforts to roll back access to abortions.”
In other words, Wen was not pushing abortion as aggressively as the taxpayer-funded abortion business would like, in addition to allegedly refusing to say men can get pregnant, a biological fallacy.
The reports concerning Wen’s departure fly in the face of overused Planned Parenthood talking points about the company being “so much more” than just providing abortion “care.” Turns out, averaging some 320,00 abortions annually is still not enough."
