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”.
In other words, the right to murder unborn children is a health choice for the mother.
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.
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.
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.
Powerful Homily: Catholic Priest Rebukes Members of the Church Who Ignored Religious Freedom, Voted for Joe Biden
This priest isn’t cowing before the pro-abortion Left.
Father Jeffrey Kirby of the Diocese of Charleston delivered a powerful homily rebuking members of the Church who voted for Joe Biden last week.
Father Kirby began his homily telling the account of St. Thomas Becket, a 12th century English bishop who was murdered in his cathedral for upholding the rights of the Church in defiance of governmental mandates. Kirby compared Becket’s opponents to Catholics who supported Biden, who is likely to continue in the vein of governmental impositions and infringements on religious liberty seen from President Obama’s administration.
Watch Father Kirby’s full homily here.
“Some of you, I know, voted for someone who is now going to suffer and persecute the Church for the next four years…
That on top of the fact that he supports the slaughter of the unborn!
What have you done! What have you done to your Church! Look, and watch, as our religious sisters are dragged through the courts! As contraception is imposed upon them! Watch as our hospitals disappear. Because we will not follow government dictates.”
Biden, who styles himself as a Catholic despite support for unlimited abortion and homosexualism, benefited from the support of more religious Catholics and Evangelical Christians than previous Democrat candidates for President. Father Kirby made sure that those who thought allusions to “tone” and decorum were more important than fundamental Catholic moral teachings on life understood the errors of their ways.
“And those of you who voted for such an administration… bear responsibility, for what you have done. Because we are in for it, folks. And they are already getting ready for it.”
Some high-ranking bishops of the American Catholic Church even went so far as to appear to outright endorse Joe Biden, a development unprecedented for a presidential candidate promising full support for an unlimited abortion agenda.
“Never forget, that the spiritual mystics tell us, that the pavements of hell are paved with the skulls of bishops. I preach the truth. So those of you who are entrusted to my care- you know what we believe as Catholics. You know what the true religion calls for. And I want to make sure that I speak it-even if every one of you denies it.“
