Shocking Statements Of New Planned Parenthood President Are Nothing New

Progressives like to make demands and believe they are entitled to rights that benefit them while harming others.

None of these so-called “rights” are as harmful and devastating to society than abortion-on-demand.

And it is hard to believe that one woman who vowed to protect life is now in charge of destroying it.

Many wondered if things might be different once a medical doctor took the helm at Planned Parenthood, but some things never change.

Doctors take an oath to protect innocent lives and treat others with compassion and dignity.

But for the new president of Planned Parenthood, this oath means nothing.

Mommy Underground previously reported on Leana Wen’s takeover of the abortion giant after the rapid departure of Cecile Richards, asking what it would mean for the organization.

Of course, Wen, just like Richards before her, thinks that being legally allowed to kill an unborn child is a “fundamental human right.”

And she took to Twitter to make the world aware that she will “vigorously” fight for it.

The idea that health is a basic fundamental human right is the concept and value that I’ve held my entire life. At @PPFA, I will continue to vigorously defend that right to healthcare for all.

This in itself is not a shocking statement.  After all, what else would we expect from someone in the top position of the nation’s largest abortion provider?

What is disturbing is who Wen is, and why she would be so rabidly pro-abortion with a background like hers.

Wen grew up in China, a young girl during the country’s one-child policy when girls were aborted or abandoned to die just for being born girls.

She says she became a doctor after seeing the lack of medical care available for immigrant families in China, including the time a young neighbor boy died because his family was too afraid to call for help and disclose their illegal status.

The suffering she saw as a child should have made her a stealth defender of the right to life for all.  Instead, she avoids using the term “abortion” and thinks killing innocent children is a fundamental of healthcare that all countries should provide.

Without elaborating on what services they received, Wen states that both she and her mother “depended” on Planned Parenthood when they arrived in the U.S.

Like Richards before her, Wen likes to spout the false claims that Planned Parenthood is about providing life-saving health services to women.

Live Action conducted an undercover investigation last year in which 92 out of 97 Planned Parenthood clinics visited turned away women inquiring about prenatal care for babies they wanted to keep.

And it was found that none provided mammograms, a service Wen says the organization provides.

This was another reason Wen gave for working at the organization after she lost a patient to metastatic breast cancer who was unable to afford medical care until it was too late.

During the investigation, three staff members made comments to women working undercover that proves they are only in business to perform abortions.

“Planned Parenthood offers abortions, so they don’t offer prenatal care,” “No Planned Parenthood does prenatal care, hon,” and “No, we don’t do prenatal services. I mean, it’s called Planned Parenthood, I know it’s kind of deceiving,” were some of the responses they received during undercover visits, according to Live Action.

And in an interview with Glamour Magazine, Wen compared access to abortion to access to life-saving medical information and services for disease.

“[What] if the government imposed a gag rule, saying that doctors should follow a specific script in telling people about diabetes and insulin. It would never happen. It’s ludicrous to even think about. That’s why it’s so important for us to emphasize that reproductive health care is health care, that women’s health care is health care and that health care has to be a fundamental human right.”

The flaw in her logic – like that of so many others who defend Planned Parenthood as some sort of regular medical office – is that abortion procedures end lives.

To compare that to regular healthcare is disgusting, to say the least.

She says that the single most important “health catastrophe” of our time that needs to be addressed is women’s health.  But “women’s health” almost always means access to abortion.

After all, we all face the potential for disease in our lifetimes, we all get sick and need medical attention, yet there is never a mention of men’s health rights.

That’s because Planned Parenthood has always hidden its true purpose under the guise of providing preventative medical care to women.

So then why is the word “parenthood” part of the organization’s name?

It would be more aptly named “Preventing Parenthood,” as this is the main goal of the organization – that, and turning an enormous profit on the murder of unborn children in the name of convenience.

Instead of devoting her life to saving lives, to extending them with dignity, to preserving the only “fundamental right” there is – the right to live — Wen is proudly in charge of an organization that kills over 300,000 children a year.

And that is not to mention all of the other disturbing things the abortion giant has been accused of as Mommy Underground has reported in the past.

From providing abortions to underage teens without parental consent, to enabling the ringleaders of prostitution and sex workers, to alleged Medicaid fraud, Planned Parenthood operates under a veil of secrecy and darkness that they defend no matter the costs.

Leana Wen sees no problem with violating her medical oath and ignoring the lessons of her home country in which daughters were killed because families wanted sons.

We see that nothing has changed with a medical doctor at the helm of the nation’s largest abortion giant.

The hypocrisy has only become more obvious with Wen’s takeover.
