The Planned Parenthood abortion business has always had the liberal media in its back pocket. So it should come as no surprise that a New York Times writer will be heading up the search committee the abortion company has put together to find a replacement for its departing CEO Cecile Richards.

According to a report in the liberal Huffington Post, Richards plans to step down as the head of the abortion company in May after the release of her April book recounting her experience leading the nation’s biggest abortion business. Planned Parenthood has tapped New York Times writer Anna Quindlen and the creator of the controversial play Hamilton to lead the search committee to find a new CEO for the abortion chain.

Richards, the iconic face of Planned Parenthood for over a decade, will officially step down from helm of the organization in May, just after the April release of her new memoir, Make Trouble: Standing Up, Speaking Out, and Finding the Courage to Lead — My Life Story. The search committee for Richards’ replacement will be led by Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times columnist and novelist Anna Quindlen, whose mother died of ovarian cancer at the age of 40.

“Anna’s unique voice on behalf of women has motivated us for decades,” said Naomi Aberly, chair of the board at Planned Parenthood. “The board is grateful for her willingness to help us find our future leader.”

The search committee, a group of nine women and one man of diverse backgrounds, includes Dr. Luz Towns-Miranda, activist and mother of “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda; Dominican television journalist Carmen Wong; Democratic fundraiser Aimee Boone Cunningham; and various leaders and board members at Planned Parenthood. The board has specifically instructed the committee to seek candidates who reflect Planned Parenthood’s patients, most of whom are women and roughly 40 percent of whom are people of color.

Abortion activists are calling on Planned Parenthood to name a replacement for Richards who is African-American, even though the abortion business preys on black women to sell more abortions. One analysis found that the abortion chain placed 79 percent of its abortion facilities within walking distance of minority neighborhoods.

The abortion rate is disproportionately high in the black American community. Even though black Americans make up 13 percent of the U.S. population, 35 percent of the babies killed in abortions are black, according to the Centers for Disease Control. The black genocide of abortion is disturbingly evident in New York City, where state data shows more black babies are aborted than are born.
