Wen was the abortion giant's first President who was actually a doctor. Not surprisingly, she approached the job from a healthcare point of view. The organization's board, however, wanted a political activist in the position.
While details are still coming out, early reports indicate that Wen was fired because she wasn't radical enough for the Planned Parenthood board's liking.
Just so we're clear, when you hear that Wen refused to use "trans-inclusive" language, that means that she refused to say that men can have abortions too.
Rep. Julian Castro (D-TX) shocked America when he stood on the Democrat Debate stage a few weeks ago and declared that trans-females can have abortions too.
I don’t believe only in reproductive freedom. I believe in reproductive justice. And, you know, what that means is that just because a woman — or let’s also not forget someone in the trans community, a trans female, is poor, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have the right to exercise that right to choose. And so I absolutely would cover the right to have an abortion.
In case you aren't up to date with your leftist propaganda talking points, a trans-female is a biological male who believes that he is a woman. It is literally impossible for a biological man to have an abortion, but that is the Left's latest policy position.
Leanna Wen refused to take this stand. A Buzzfeed reporter says that Wen may have refused to talk about men getting abortion because it would "isolate people in the Midwest."
Regardless, this is a pretty shocking development.
The ouster came on the same day that the Trump administration officially cut off Planned Parenthood's access to $280 million in Title X funding. So it makes sense that Planned Parenthood, on the brink of bankruptcy, would want a "more aggressive political leader" as their President.
To be fair, if you believe that men pretending to be women have a right to have an abortion, it's probably not a good idea to ask a licensed medical doctor to be your spokesperson...
