One of the symptoms of agitation is the inability to stay still. Leana Wen knows that. She's a doctor. And she was the president of Planned Parenthood until today, when the board of the abortion organization secretly met and kicked her out for "philosophical" differences after less than nine months. You are restless. You can not stay still.
And no wonder: Planned parenting encounters more resistance than ever before. The White House Republican has taken the lower federal courts and two Supreme Court posts with Conservative judges, who may threaten (underline) the fundamental decision on which planned parenthood depends .
The states have also taken the courage to accept the planned parenthood. Alone this year, nine states have passed laws that limit abortion after a fetal heartbeat has been detected in the womb. In Alabama, lawmakers completely prohibited abortion. None of these laws are currently enforced, and they will undoubtedly be heard in court. But the message is clear: Planned parenting does not have the power. We, the people, do it.
Perhaps that scares planned parenting the most. The culture is changing. A recent survey found that, although the majority of Americans oppose the overthrow of Roe more than 61
Planned parenting can no longer hide behind the health mask. Last year, a survey found that 48% of voters support legislation to withhold tax money from planned parenting while abortions continue. Only 40% rejected.
Leana Wen sought to restore Planned Parenthood's image by prioritizing health care. "People are not coming to Planned Parenthood to make a political statement," she told Buzzfeed News last year. "They come because they need their vaccinations, they need their women's examinations, they get HIV tests."
When Wen was hired for the first time, some pro-choice advocates celebrated their new focus, but others saw it as a departure from the actual fight or as the only battle that matters: the abortion war.
"It's a symbol of fatigue, the fight was tough and they're tired," said Hank Sheinkopf, a seasoned Advisor for Democratic Buzzfeed News. "If you publicly project that you are no longer a lawyer, but a medical service provider, it's a presumption that the bad guys will not beat you up because you're not getting a stick in their eyes all the time Pending parenthood must have agreed because they displaced Wen in a "secret meeting." Of course they did, and Planned P arenthood proved correct: The company's priority has always been on abortion, not on health care. They want quick and decisive measures to protect abortion – no mammograms (which they do not do), no vaccinations, no good women's examinations.
Leana Wen always fought a losing battle. Or maybe she did not do enough. But when it comes to planned parenting, nothing is enough.
