Statement On New Planned Parenthood President
Students for Life of America says Choosing a Doctor who doesn’t respect all life illustrates Planned Parenthood’s True Values
WASHINGTON D.C. (09-12-18) – Responding to news of Planned Parenthood’s choice of Dr. Leana Wen for its new president, Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins said, “It’s a shame that the Hippocratic Oath, to heal and to do no harm to any patient, is not held in the highest regard by the physicians at Planned Parenthood. Putting a doctor in in the presidency of Planned Parenthood won’t change the fact that the overall mission of that organization is ensuring that many lives are ended at a huge profit to the nation’s number one abortion vendor. Abortion is not healthcare, and women deserve better than what Planned Parenthood wants to sell them.”
“Planned Parenthood does two things well, convince politicians to give it scarce taxpayer resources to the tune of more than half-a-BILLION dollars each year, and end preborn lives. It’s time to defund Planned Parenthood and invest in life-affirming choices for women and their children.”
Students for Life of America has lead a number of national campaigns to redirect scarce tax dollars from the nation’s number one abortion vendor.
