World's biggest abortion provider admits it exists for abortion

Dr. Leana Wen (PP) on CBSPro-life organizations are "thanking" Planned Parenthood's newest leader for confirming what really isn't secret to anyone paying attention.

Planned Parenthood's new president is Dr. Leana Wen, who has enjoyed weeks of fawning media interviews since taking the helm in November.

She was apparently unhappy, however, with a Buzzfeed headline that read, "Planned Parenthood's new president wants to focus on non-abortion health care."

Many pro-life groups were watching, including Jim Sedlak of the American Life League, when the new president issued a statement via Twitter.

Planned Parenthood building 2"And the statement she issued was that Planned Parenthood's core mission is providing, protecting and expanding access to abortion and reproductive health care," Sedlak tells OneNewsNow.

So the truth came out or, as The Daily Signal described it, Wen's tweet "blew more than a decade of subterfuge and hyperbole to bits."

Wen made headlines in November when she appeared for a friendly interview on "CBS This Morning" on her first official day as PP president, allowing her to swat away at softball questions. 

"Planned Parenthood's new president appears on CBS and doesn't mention abortion once," read a National Review headline the next day. 

For years Planned Parenthood has claimed abortions make up approximately three percent of its services to women who also have access to birth control, pregnancy and STD tests, and cancer screenings. But the claim has been largely dismissed as laughable by critics who question the country's largest abortion provider and suspect creative bookkeeping practices to move around a half-million dollars in taxpayers' money annually. 

The statement went on to declare that Planned Parenthood will "never back down" and called abortion a "fundamental human right."

"It's not a surprise to pro-lifers," says Sedlak, "but is refreshing to see Planned Parenthood's president, and the staff at Planned Parenthood who control her, acknowledging publicly that Planned Parenthood's core mission is providing abortion."
