A former Planned Parenthood official has joined the Tennessee Democratic Party as its executive director.
If you need more evidence that the Democrat Party and the Planned Parenthood abortion business are in bed with each other look no further than the state of Tennessee. The Tennessee Democratic Party just announced the hiring of a new executive director — and it’s none other than the former president of the Planned Parenthood abortion business in the state.
Planned Parenthood and abortion activists have almost completely taken over the party. Abortion advocates tried their level best to defeat a pro-life congressmen in the state of Illinois, but lost last night.
But they are having more success in the volunteer state where they are setting up shop running the Democratic Party. Here’s more:
According to news release from the party, new executive director Jeff Teague most recently served as president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Middle and East Tennessee.
Teague has also served in campaign and vice presidential office roles for Al Gore.
Teague replaced former party executive director Jason Freeman.
The executive director is responsible for monitoring and management of day-to-day party business, among other programs and initiatives to build the party and help elect more Democrats.
Teague retired last year as the president and CEO of the Planned Parenthood affiliate in middle and eastern Tennessee. He ran the Tennessee abortion business for 17 years.
How many unborn babies were killed under Teague’s leadership is unknown.

Teague said he is “incredibly proud of what we have accomplished” at Planned Parenthood of Middle and Eastern Tennessee. He said they are financially stable and their patient numbers are up.
“In an incredibly hostile environment, the political strength and influence of Planned Parenthood is unquestionable,” Teague said. “[I am] honored and humbled to have worked with the most incredibly passionate and dedicated staff and volunteers.”
In his role at the abortion chain, Teague fought against a late-term abortion ban and urged changes to a bill prohibiting the sales of aborted babies’ body parts. Last year, he blasted a bill that would give women the chance to see an ultrasound of their unborn babies, claiming it was nothing but a political attempt to “frighten women.”
It’s no wonder so few pro-life Democrats remain. Most have jumped ship to the Republican Party or are not independents, and the pro-abortion move to take over the Democrat Party will likely drive away what few remain.
