Cecile Richards is Stepping Down as President of Planned Parenthood

medicaid abortion Planned ParenthoodCecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, is reportedly stepping down from her position next week, Planned Parenthood officials say.

According to a Planned Parenthood representative, Richards plans to discuss a strategy for 2018 before her departure, as well as plan the next steps for the organization’s future at an upcoming board meeting.

Richards, now 60 years old, has presided over America’s largest abortion provider since 2006, overseeing approximately 3.5 million abortions over her tenure. Her salary had continually increased over this period of time, with Richards currently making nearly $1 million a year.

Cecile Richards saw Planned Parenthood through some of the organization’s largest controversies, including the investigation surrounding a 2015 series of investigative videos by the Center for Medical Progress that depicted how Planned Parenthood employees profit from the sale of body parts from aborted infants.

Since President Trump, an outspoken pro-life advocate, has taken office, Richards and Planned Parenthood have been making a large-scale effort to conceal the organization’s activity from the public. During the Obama administration, Richards knew Planned Parenthood had an ally in the White House and thus was much more lax in her approach to the organization’s public image, knowing that officials in Washington would be complicit in Planned Parenthood’s dishonest practices. After seeing President Trump’s resolve to defund Planned Parenthood and his commitment to defending the rights of the unborn, the organization has been taking a more secretive approach in their recent operations, knowing that our nation now has a leader unafraid to put his foot down and stand up to the abortion industry.

Richards already has questionable ties to liberal politicians – Hillary Clinton was openly endorsed by Planned Parenthood in the 2016 election, and prior to joining the organization, Cecile Richards served as deputy chief of staff for Democrat Rep. Nancy Pelosi.

For these reasons, some are suspecting Richards’ departure marks a turning point for the pro-life movement. Her stepping down can be viewed as evidence that the organization’s old approach is no longer working. The public is informed, Planned Parenthood’s dirty secrets are out. More and more Americans are becoming keen to the fact that the organization is nothing but a taxpayer-funded abortion chain masquerading as a women’s health care provider.

Some also suspect that Richards is leaving due to the ensuing investigation of Planned Parenthood. After allegations of illegally trafficking body parts of aborted infants, Richards may be trying to distance herself from the organization before any indictments begin.

While pro-abortion campaigners have expressed sadness about her departure, pro-life advocates are singing a different tune.

“She leaves broken lives in her wake,” the president of Students for Life of America said in a recent statement, adding that her departure is “evidence of the collapsing abortion industry”.

As Richards makes her exit from Planned Parenthood, America’s brave pro-life warriors have but one thing to say upon her departure: good riddance.

If you have never marched in or stood in a pro life rally , and had angry, virulent insults spat at you, you may never have looked in the face of a person possessed by evil. May The God of all Mercy bring them to repentance.

PP doesn’t even give Pap smears, mammograms or pre natal care. All are farmed out. They do sonograms but only to determine if the woman is pregnant. Even though they claim no federal money is used to perform abortions I bet these sonograms & any other related tests are billed to Medicaid if they can make them look like “healthcare”.

ACLJ has been fighting Planned Parenthood (PP) in the courts and in Supreme Court cases for a long time. The biggest challenge is PP has so much money (government funding, progressive supporters, etc.) that they are almost impossible to stop. Change in PP management will not stop PP’s agenda. There is too much money in baby tissue sales. ACLJ must continue their fight in the courts and we must continue asking our political leaders to stop giving tax money to PP.

We need to remember that C. Richards does not comprise Planned Parenthood, and that someone just as corrupt will most likely take her place… There’s big money to be made in this and in every corrupt practice, and that entices corrupt people. May God have mercy on her, on all involved in this desecration, and on us, who pray for them.

If she doesn’t do a 180 and become totally anti abortion like the woman who was the subject of Roe v Wade and become a committed Christian, it will be nothing to celebrate either in this world or the next.

More likely she will be laughing all the way to the bank as she gets offered a multi-million dollar salary at some ultra liberal organization bankrolled by Soros or the DNC. People like Richards rarely change their beliefs. They are what they are.

Thank you Dear God. To her it is just about money. No concept of life. They must hate themselves. Including Pelosi who is supposedly a religious person and Hilary presuming to be a preacher!

Pray for her. Imagine her pain when she understands what she did.
And know that she will suffer more than the innocents.

Sorry, she has no conscience so will not suffer over. She will regret loss of her million dollar paycheck. However some Liberal organization will probably hire her for that or more salary probably being backed by Soros.

Bingo! She will end up making several times her PP salary and be a darling of the left for “all her good work”.

Richards has presided over a Holocaust the likes of which the world has never seen. Like Hitler, she will have to someday stand before God and be accountable for what she has done.

This should be the evidence needed to show the public that Planned Parenthood no longer needs taxpayer funding!!!! If the left is so worried about “women’s health” and thinks only PP can give these women pap smears, etc…then cut the presidents position to something more on the level with the working class instead of the CEO’s the left so despises, and use the extra money saved for all those poor women that the left keep touting about!

What does Liz Warren have to say about an exec making so much $.
Would that 7 figure salary be considered Corp greed.
How much of that was derived from providing for other women’s health issues.
