Well, that didn’t’ last long. Incredible, nationwide pro-life momentum has prompted Planned Parenthood to oust its president, Leana Wen, after just 8 months on the job.
But, the reasons for Wen’s departure should be a warning to our movement. According to Wen, she wanted to “run a national health care organization” while the Planned Parenthood board wanted to “double down” on pro-abortion politics. While Wen’s assertion that anyone could confuse what Planned Parenthood does as health care is laughable, we must take seriously the commitment of that evil organization to bring more resources and intensity to its political engagement.
We can expect Georgia to be at the forefront of Planned Parenthood’s efforts to “double down.” To help us fight back, please consider a generous gift today.
Notes on my travels: Since the close of the legislative session, I’ve traveled all over the state to places like Dalton, Savannah, and Valdosta to share about our ministry and spread the message about the momentum for families under Governor Kemp. I’ve spoken to political groups, and I’ve preached in churches. If there are people you want me to meet or groups you want me to speak to, feel free to reply to this email so we can get something on the schedule.
Prayers for next week: We have been updating you on the Family Policy Foundation® 2019 Statesmen Academy℠, and many of you have responded generously to help fund this pivotal program. Well, this training will be held next week in Atlanta for leaders from around the country – including our allies in Georgia. Please be in prayer for his program, for it to impact the attendees, for learning to occur, for relationships to be formed, and for its long-term success transforming our state and our nation.
In His Service,
President and Executive Director
