FULL TITLE: Former Head of Planned Parenthood Accuses Organization of 'Stridently Political, Abortion-first Philosophy'
Dr. Leana Wen, the recently fired head of Planned Parenthood, has not made her exit from the nations largest abortion provider a quiet one.
In a letter to Planned Parenthoods board of directors, which was leaked to The New York Times, Wen accuses the group of trying to buy [her] silence, by withholding her severance package as ransom to get her to sign a confidentiality agreement.
No amount of money can ever buy my integrity and my commitment to the patients I serve, she wrote.
The board of Planned Parenthood fired Dr. Wen, 36, in July after sharp disagreements over what officials there described as her abrasive and flawed management style. Dr. Wen blamed her sacking on disagreements over her reorienting the organization further from abortion politics and more toward its role as a womens health provider.
In her letter, Dr. Wen wrote she believed that de-emphasizing abortion care is the best way to protect it. However, she went on, there is a vocal minority including many national staff and board members who prefer a stridently political, abortion-first philosophy. (NYT)
While she said she had no desire to harm the organization, she did signal that legal action could be forthcoming.
I have no desire to file claims against Planned Parenthood for defamation, retaliation, or discrimination, she wrote.
On Twitter, Wen expressed her disappointment that her letter was leaked.

Anyone who is pro choice, supports Planned Parenthood or for that matter identifies as a Democrat, has made so many abominable moral compromises with their conscience to accept the wholesale slaughter of human life, that they could never be trusted in any matter of importance. Decent people should have only the most superficial association possible with such people. You definitely don’t want them in your home or to be in the proverbial foxhole next to you.
“Oh gee Leana you just NOW realized this?”
My first thoughts exactly.
But, she may’ve gone into the situation “eyes wide open” but hoping to change PP. Of course, the Board took the steps any good Lefty organization takes by declaring her guilty of...”abrasive and flawed management style.”
Closer to the truth probably was Dr Wen’s response...”Dr. Wen blamed her sacking on disagreements over her reorienting the organization further from abortion politics and more toward its role as a womens health provider.”
Follow-up thought... if she went in hoping to change PP, you’ve got to give her credit for stepping into the “Lion’s Den”.
Pray for her conversion.
She wasn’t worried about killing babies but now she is worried about blackmail?
Sucks to be on THAT side.
I’m going to give Dr. Wen the benefit of the doubt on this.
She’s still a young woman. She can still come over to the side of righteousness.
It's where the money is.
File the claim, Dr. Wen. File the claim. G-d knows they made enough money selling dead baby organs. They can afford it.
It would be funny if she sued. Tragic, but funny.
Id Planned Parenthood is “Political” (as we all know it is) why are they not required to fill as a PAC and follow political rules..........Also use this to defund them
Just WalkAway# Dr. Wen. Once you see it clearly, it can never be unseen. You want to fight for babies, save women? Fight PP with all the information you gathered this year working for them.
