"I came to Planned Parenthood to run a national health care organization and to advocate for the broad range of public health policies that affect our patients' health," Wen added. "... The new Board leadership has determined that the priority of Planned Parenthood moving forward is to double down on abortion rights advocacy ... With the landscape changing dramatically in the last several months and the right to safe, legal abortion care under attack like never before, I understand the shift in the Board's prioritization."

Two sources told us that Wen refused to use “trans-inclusive” language, for example saying “people” instead of “women,” telling staff that she believed talking about transgender issues would “isolate people in the Midwest.”

Wen sometimes went through PP's press releases and docs, deleting the word “sexual” from the phrase “sexual and reproductive health,” the source said. She also resisted using “abortion” as a stand-alone, preferring “abortion care” or other phrases entirely.

So basically she wanted to focus on women’s health, they wanted her to focus on abortions and political activism.

Wen's mistake was that she focused Planned Parenthood on actually providing women's health care, while PP's Board of Directors want to focus PP on maximizing abortions and political activism for transsexuals, pansexuals, etc.

It will be a shame if Planned Parenthood's many needed programs suffers because of the ultra-extreme left. I have considered leaving PP as a beneficiary in my will, but I won't if their main focus changes from contraception and sexual health (for everyone) to some kind of LGBTQW* activism.

*The W stands for "whatever". I think I just made that up because I just Googled 'LGBTQW', and it didn't come up.

For a long time the mainstream left has been appeasing their extremist wing hoping that they will be eaten last. It looks like the extremist are getting hungry.

It also announced that Alexis McGill Johnson, co-director of a research consortium called the Perception Institute, will serve as acting president of Planned Parenthood and its political wing, the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, while a search for new permanent leader is conducted.


Planned parenthood board of directors fired their president, a doctor, and hired a social justice warrior as president of the organization instead. this decision implies much about Planned Parenthood's priorities, doesn't it.

[the new planned parenthood president] is Co-Founder and Co-Director of Perception Institute – a national consortium of researchers, advocates, and cultural strategists that turns cutting-edge mind science research on identity difference into solutions that can be applied to everyday individual interactions and institutional practices.

Alexis collaborates with social scientists on empirical research to identify the efficacy of interventions that reduce discrimination and create opportunity. She leads workshops and lectures for a wide range of public institutions and private corporations, seeking to address the role of implicit bias, identity anxiety, and stereotype threat in their work.
