Washington, DC – According to news reports, Cecile Richards will be stepping down from her role as Chief Executive Officer of Planned Parenthood.
The following statement is a response from Troy Newman, President, Operation Rescue:
Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion business, is under investigation by the Department of Justice for illegally trafficking in aborted baby remains and other crimes. Could it be that Richards is getting out while she can, before indictments are handed down? Orange may be her new favorite color!
Or could it be that Planned Parenthood now sees her as a liability with all her connections to others under criminal investigation such as Hillary Clinton, the beleaguered Clinton Foundation, and Fusion GPS? Whether she is abandoning a sinking ship or being kicked to the curb by Planned Parenthood, this reveals a destabilized abortion organization, and as long as they are disorganized, it means they won’t be expanding their abortion empire. That is great news.
