In an interview with CBS This Morning, the newest president of Planned Parenthood, Leana Wen, describes her involvement with the abortion behemoth as “deeply personal”. Planned Parenthood as “healthcare” for her family has become a legacy being that her mother, sister and herself all received “services” from the clinic. However, these services remain unnamed. Newly a mother, Wen states that “being a parent has clarified my values” when it comes to reproductive rights.
Does that mean that having her son has given her perspective that she’s glad she has the right to end the lives of any other potential children? What kind of “values” apply to abortion exactly?
The newly named president of the leading provider of abortions, as of November 12th, has also sued the Trump Administration previously.
Dr. Leana Wen launched the lawsuit during her time as Baltimore Health Commissioner in 2017. The budget cut set in place by President Trump would have cut funding for a grant that provided education on teen pregnancy prevention for middle and high school girls. Wen won the lawsuit, forcing the Administration to pay $5 million for sexual health education, according to the Baltimore Sun. Following the stepping down of #RiseUpForRoe champion, Cecile Richards, Wen is adamant in administering the ‘safe’ right to abortions for the 2.5 million women Planned Parenthood sees each year.
An outspoken critic of President Trump, Wen is strong proponent that healthcare is a basic human right, and claims that politics should not be brought into the exam room. She is outraged that birth control is not covered, free of charge, under all healthcare programs. As stated in the interview with CBS, Wen explains that abortion procedures should be covered by Medicade as basic reproductive care.
Interestingly, Wen avoids the term “abortion” throughout the interview. She strategically answers that some 2.5 million women are coming to PP for services like cancer screenings, birth control, and STI testing. Concerned that Roe v. Wade could be overturned with the new addition of pro-life Justice Kavanaugh, Wen is worried that the 2.5 million women that come to Planned Parenthood will be left without access to “reproductive rights”. But, which one is it? Are 2.5 million women coming for “health services”? Or are they coming for “reproductive rights” AKA abortions?
Planned Parenthood has been, and continues to, hide behind terms like “reproductive rights” and “women’s healthcare” to diverge from the fact that their number one source of income is from abortions. They are the leading provider of abortions in America. Their attempt to disguise that they are “providing life saving care” in an effort to “fight for our most vulnerable individuals” is downright outrageous.
