There is nothing honorable about killing defenseless children in the womb.
But Sydney Etheredge, the new CEO of Planned Parenthood’s western Pennsylvania affiliate, portrayed this deadly work as such. Claiming abortion is healthcare, she told the Pittsburgh City Paper that she feels honored to be leading the affiliate.
“Being here and getting the opportunity to step into this role as someone who has seen so many, and has looked up to so many of the Planned Parenthood CEOs who have come before me … I feel so honored to be here and be in a city and a region that I just love so much,” Etheredge said.
Planned Parenthood is a billion-dollar abortion chain that does more abortions than any other group in the U.S. Its western Pennsylvania affiliate, which includes Pittsburgh, aborts more than 3,000 unborn babies a year.
Etheredge has been involved with abortion advocacy for years, having worked for Planned Parenthood’s national office for a decade, according to the report.

In her new role, she said she will work to expand abortions in Pennsylvania as well as in neighboring Ohio where lawmakers are trying to ban abortions.
According to the interview:
Etheredge says she would want patients, “whether they’re in our region or in sister regions and states nearby,” to know that PPWP is “somewhere they could go” for life-saving medical care like abortion.
Etheredge says she is also working with other local leaders to do contingency planning for possible scenarios, “preparing for what could be the worst and hoping for the best.”
“It’s a pretty hostile time for sexual and reproductive health care and for abortion care,” she continued.
But Etheredge is wrong. Abortion is not life-saving or medical care; however, it is hostile to unborn babies – unique, living human beings who are cruelly and unnecessarily killed in abortions.
Planned Parenthood has aborted more than 8 million unborn babies since abortion became legal nation-wide in 1973. Its most recent annual report showed a record number of abortions in 2020: 354,871, which is about 40 percent of all abortions in the U.S. Meanwhile, the same report showed that many of its actual health services and patient numbers continue to decline.
In recent years, the abortion chain also has been accused of other unethical and illegal activities, including selling aborted baby body parts, botching abortions that killed women, covering up the sexual abuse of minors and human trafficking victims, discriminating against pregnant and racial minority employees, exploiting young girls by selling cross-sex hormones and more.
