For decades, Planned Parenthood has insisted that it’s a health care organization.
The organization says it only cares about abortion as it’s a function of health care.
To prove that point it hired Leana Wen, the first doctor to head the organization in fifty years.
Wen insisted that abortions are just a tiny share of its purpose. She pushed the health care angle of Planned Parenthood.
The board of Planned Parenthood has terminated Wen after less than a year.
BuzzFeed and the NY Times report that Wen wasn’t single-mindedly devoted to abortion enough.
She also, allegedly, took the organization in a less political and divisive direction.
That resulted in staffers quitting over the new direction of Planned Parenthood.
Rich Lowry of Politico says Wen's ouster proves the organization is a political organization focused only on abortions.
