As we told you yesterday, Planned Parenthood President Leana Wen had her employment prematurely terminated by the PPFA board of directors. One reason Wen was ousted is reportedly that she refused to use trans-inclusive language, but the bottom line appears to be that their abortion biz is being threatened and apparently she wasn’t being aggressive enough. In any case, the media helped provide headlines like this that sparked some double-takes:

You’d think they’d wait at least another month to let her go, but doing it this way keeps them very on brand.
