2 Planned Parenthood's presidenthas been ousted after less than a year on the job. Dr. Leana Wen hinted in a Facebook statement that she was pushed out because of differing opinions on how to present the issue of abortion to the public. Wen said in a statement that she thinks access to abortion "is not a political issue but a health care one." It's no secret that it's a dire time for reproductive rights advocates. Republican leaders across the country aremoving to tighten accessto abortion services, and the Department of Health and Human Services just announced that new rules prohibiting taxpayer-funded family planning clinics from discussing abortion with patients are now in effect. Planned Parenthood has called the new regulations "devastating, illegal, & unethical" and says it will not abide by them.
