Planned Parenthood’s new CEO is trying to corrupt modern medicine by claiming that killing babies in abortions is “standard medical care.”
Leana Wen, a medical doctor and the new leader of America’s largest abortion chain, defended aborting unborn babies on Twitter in December as many Americans prepared to celebrate Christmas, the birth of Jesus Christ.
“Planned Parenthood services, from birth control to cancer screenings and abortion, are standard medical care,” Wen wrote. “Reproductive healthcare is healthcare.”
From here on out, we want to be clear: Planned Parenthood services, from birth control to cancer screenings and abortion, are standard medical care. Reproductive healthcare is healthcare. Women’s healthcare is healthcare. And healthcare is a basic human right. #ThisIsHealthcare

Wen oversees about 320,000 abortions a year at Planned Parenthood, as well as about half a billion taxpayer dollars. Planned Parenthood’smost recent annual report showed a record income of $1.46 billion. In recent years, the abortion giant has been exposed in numerous scandals involving potentially illegal sales of aborted babies’ body parts, Medicaid fraud and failures to report sexual abuse of minors.

After her initial tweet, Wen followed up with another post defending the so-called “right” to destroy an unborn baby’s life as “healthcare.”
Denying people healthcare perpetuates inequality. Keeping people unhealthy is a tool of oppression. The American people want more healthcare, not less. We want healthcare protected, expanded, and treated as a fundamental human right. #ThisIsHealthcare

Ironically, just a few days later, the New York Times reported about Planned Parenthood’s wide-spread discrimination against pregnant workers. More than a dozen current and former employees said the abortion giant often discriminated against its pregnant workers.
The report was not surprising because Planned Parenthood advocates daily for discrimination against another group of human beings: babies in the womb.
But Wen calling abortions “standard medical care” reached a new level of depravity. Her statement shows that abortion activists do not just want abortions to be tolerated. They do not want abortions to be safe, legal and rare. They want the killing of unborn babies to be accepted, to be normal, to be celebrated by society.
