Another year of TIME’s 100 Most Influential People means another promotion of Planned Parenthood. Dr. Leana Wen came on as the abortion giant’s new president in November 2018, replacing the outgoing Cecile Richards, who was included twice before, and already Wen made TIME's 2019 list.
Dr. Leana Wen got a hero’s welcome on The Daily Show With Trevor Noah on March 21. Noah gushed that Wen, who has now been the president of Planned Parenthood for 4 months, has “one of the most impressive resumes of any human being I have ever read” and has “been a badass from day one.”
Interview magazine published a pro-abortion puff piece on Feb. 20 in which Chelsea Clinton gave a softball interview to Planned Parenthood President Dr. Leana Wen in what was essentially a love letter to abortion giant.
Trouble in liberal paradise? Apparently BuzzFeed News is concerned that America’s number one abortion business isn’t focusing enough on abortion and politics in the wake of former Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards’ departure last year. Somehow, BuzzFeed News seems to be trying to spin it that new Planned Parenthood President Dr. Leana Wen is not radically pro-abortion enough.
Well, well, well, it turns out that Planned Parenthood might not be the immaculate champion of women’s rights they insist to be. Well we all knew that, but it sure is nice to see it as an official story written by The New York Times. In a Thursday report, The New York Times exposed the abortion giant’s “discrimination” against its own pregnant employees.
CBS This Morning co-hosts on Monday fawned over the new president of Planned Parenthood, cheering “yay!” that she appeared on the show. The hosts also lamented that the organization, responsible for three million abortions, had been “politicized.” The journalists also allowed Dr. Leana Wen to repeat the mostly bogus claim that the abortion provider offers “cancer screenings.”
The New York Times again provided favorable, euphemistic coverage to the nation’s largest abortion provider (er, "health care" provider), while finding ideology only among its enemies. Reporter Kate Zernike introduced Planned Parenthood’s new leader Dr. Leana Wen, while avoiding the word "abortion" as long as she could: "Planned Parenthood, under fire from conservatives in Washington and state capitols..."
Planned Parenthood’s new president calls her organization “transparent,” even as she insists abortion consists of only 3% of its services. That’s a number even The Washington Post has debunked. But, according to her, this isn’t “political.” On Sept. 12, the nation’s largest abortion provider announced its incoming president: Dr. Leana Wen. In response, ABC’s The View invited Wen on as a guest the next day.
For a second day in a row, The View host Sunny Hostin went on a tirade against President Trump for his comments touting the government aid given to Hurricane Maria hitting Puerto Rico last September. After media backlash, Trump doubled down and claimed the media had exaggerated the death toll. On Thursday's show, Hostin was irate at the President’s comments, saying this made him an “illegitimate president” and blamed a century old U.S. maritime law for the island being in financial ruin.
