In a recent interview with The Washington Post, Planned Parenthood CEO Alexis Johnson admitted abortion's role in the organization, which considers it healthcare, even though the result of a successful procedure is the terminated life of a preborn baby. Eric Scheidler of the Pro-Life Action League sees the significance in that.

"I'm encouraged to see the head of Planned Parenthood not trying to pretend that abortion is no big deal and walking away from Planned Parenthood's usual instinct of trying to downplay their role in abortion," he comments. "They always present that crazy false statistic that abortion is only three percent of what they do. That's an accounting gimmick."

Dr. Leana Wen, Planned Parenthood's former CEO, was forced out in 2019 for trying to move away from abortion. According to The New York Times, current and former Planned Parenthood officials describe Dr. Wen as "a smart but alienating manager who wanted to significantly reorient the group's focus away from the abortion wars and more toward its role as a women's health provider."

Scheidler, Eric (Pro-Life Action League)Scheidler points out that Planned Parenthood, America's largest abortion chain, controls almost 40% of the country's abortion business, which adds up to a lot of cash.

"We fight so hard against Planned Parenthood's positive public image that they've worked so hard to construct. We continue to meet even pro-life Christians who don't know Planned Parenthood is the nation's number-one abortion provider," the pro-lifer accounts. "So it's encouraging to see that Planned Parenthood's reputation as Abortion Incorporated is really getting out there into the culture."

The abortion giant terminates about 340,000 babies every year, rakes in about $1.5 billion a year, and pumps large sums of money into political campaigns to elect pro-abortion candidates.
