Statement on the appointment of a new Planned Parenthood president

New Planned Parenthood President Dr. Leana Wen says she wants to fight for the most vulnerable individuals in her role. Unless this organization plans to change its mission or close every one of its clinics, this will continue to be a lie. The organization will go on to perform 300,000 abortions a year, attacking the most vulnerable, innocent lives.

As long as Planned Parenthood exists, regardless of who is president, the future of America is in danger. In this case, Planned Parenthood named an abortion activist who has a track record of trying to force pregnancy resource centers, which provide free medical help for women, to promote abortion, making it appear that it is women’s only option.

Women deserve better than Planned Parenthood, an organization that continues to close facilities and struggle at the local level. That will continue as we launch the largest 40 Days for Life Campaign ever in 415 cities on September 26.
