Less than a year after hiring Leana Wen as president, Planned Parenthood fired the physician and former Baltimore health commissioner on Tuesday over a clash of goals for the nation’s largest abortion provider.
“I just learned that the [Planned Parenthood] Board ended my employment at a secret meeting,” Wen tweeted after the firing. “We were engaged in good faith negotiations about my departure based on philosophical differences over the direction and future of Planned Parenthood.”
