Dan Miller, State Director
Planned Parenthood announced today that Dr. Leana Wen will replace Cecile Richards as president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America and Planned Parenthood Action Fund.
Pro-Life Wisconsin State Director Dan Miller offered the following comments:
“Cecile Richard’s twelve-year reign of terror on America’s babies has now come to an end. Over 3.5 million preborn children were aborted under her leadership. Now Dr. Leana Wen is taking the helm of this murderous organization. This announcement comes just in time for Planned Parenthood’s 2018 election fundraising campaign.
“An immigrant from China, Dr. Wen worked her way up to her ‘dream job’ as the City of Baltimore’s Health Commissioner and worked previously as an emergency room physician. Wen will be the first physician to lead Planned Parenthood in over fifty years. If her ‘dream job’ constituted saving and protecting lives, she’s in for a nightmare with Planned Parenthood. Hasn’t she heard that they sell aborted baby body parts for experimentation? Will she hear the silent screams of over 320,000 babies murdered every year by her new employer? Will she see the humanity of the preborn child in her own children? Who immigrates here from China, home of the infamous ‘one-child-policy,’ works their way up the social and economic ladder with the dreams of one day leading the largest abortion provider in America? Planned Parenthood must have given her an offer she couldn’t refuse.
“What a sad day for America and the hundreds of thousands of preborn babies that will be slaughtered under her watch at Planned Parenthood. Dr. Wen is now the leader of an unscrupulous organization who kills innocent babies and injures vulnerable women. May God have mercy on her eternal soul.”
