Planned Parenthood Head Aborted 8 Months

Leana Wen, M.D., the former president of Planned Parenthood, had her position abruptly aborted after 8 months into her job’s gestation.

Wen, who lead Planned Parenthood through tumultuous times, was forced out of her position on Tuesday, citing “philosophical differences” in a public statement posted to Twitter. It is unknown if these differences were political or medical in nature.

On Twitter, Wen wrote that she took the position at “Planned Parenthood to lead a national health care organization that provides essential primary and preventive care to millions of underserved women and families,” and that she believes “the best way to protect abortion care is to be clear that it is not a political issue but a health care one”.

Wen went on to say that she is “leaving because the new Board Chairs and [she] have philosphical differences over the direction and future of Planned Parenthood,” and stressed that she “will always stand with Planned Parenthood,” as she continues her “life’s work and mission of caring for and fighting for women, families, and communities.”

Planned Parenthood did not cite similar “philosophical issues” in their response reported to media.

Rolling Stone reported:

In a statement from Planned Parenthood, the organization did not address any contention between the parties and announced its new Acting President.

“We thank Dr. Leana Wen for her service to Planned Parenthood in such a pivotal time and extend our best wishes for her continued success,” the statement reads. “We are pleased to announce that Alexis Gill Johnson has been named Acting President, effective immediately. Alexis is a renowned social justice leader, lifelong political organizer and a tireless advocate for healthcare.” Johnson has served on Planned Parenthood’s board for nearly a decade and served as a Board Chair from 2013 to 2015.

Last month President Donald Trump was given the green light to end federal funding for abortion after a court sided with his administration, possibly creating more tumultuous times for the abortion-advocating organization that donates heavily to Democrat politicians.

Big League Politics reported:

President Donald Trump will be able to cut between $50 million to $60 million in Title X funds slated for Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers following an appeals court ruling in his administration’s favor on Thursday.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found that the Trump administration’s request to remove national injunctions imposed over the entire state of California and by lower federal courts in Oregon and Washington state was lawful, and they will now be cleared to impose their new proposed rules.

“Absent a stay, HHS will be forced to allow taxpayer dollars to be spent in a manner that it has concluded violates the law, as well as the Government’s important policy interest in ensuring that taxpayer dollars do not go to fund or subsidize abortions,” wrote the judges, who were all appointed by Republican former presidents, in a 3-0 opinion.

It is unknown how Planned Parenthood’s activities will be changed due to the “philosophical differences”, or how Wen’s advocacy will continue outside the organization. Big League Politics contacted Wen for comment and did not immediately receive a reply.
