How to properly fawn over Planned Parenthood

Dr. Leana Wen (PP) on CBSThe new CEO of abortion giant Planned Parenthood is trying to rebrand the controversial organization and got some assistance from CBS News her first day on the job.

"As a doctor, I am proud to lead our organization as we deliver life-saving care to two and a half million people every year," Dr. Leana Wen told "CBS News This Morning" Monday.

The pro-life community was aghast at the interviewers for fawning over Wen, and LifeNews.com quickly published an op-ed suggesting the smiling doctor delivered at least five exaggerations or outright lies.

"Though she’s not as smooth at lying as her predecessors Cecile Richards and Margaret Sanger, she has been on tour with #fakenews media repeating these same tired pro-abortion lies," Ryan Bomberger, of the Radiance Foundation, writes in the online commentary.

Carol Tobias, president of the National Right to Life Committee, tells OneNewsNow that Wen is struggling to make Planned Parenthood relevant but did not succeed over her claim of life-saving care.

"Unborn babies are people, too," says Tobias, a veteran in the pro-life movement. "So when she says they are in the business of saving lives, she's forgetting for every pregnant woman that comes in gets an abortion there are two people but only one leaves."

It was surprising to watch the Planned Parenthood leader make such claims with a "straight face" as if nobody would challenge her, Tobias adds.

But many people did.

"Planned Parenthood's new president appears on CBS and doesn't mention abortion once," reads the headline of a National Review article by Alexandra DeSanctis, which recounts the softball questions and the "fluffy soundbites" Wen delivered in response.

Planned Parenthood generates approximately $150 million a year in revenue from abortion, its largest money maker, and routinely performs more than 300,000 abortions a year. That makes it the biggest abortion provider in the country.

Twitter-following website Twitchy also posted clips of Wen's interview and various Twitter users who called the cozy interview "disgusting" and "sick."

"Shades of Pravda," Janet Mefferd, an American Family Radio talk show show, remarked on Twitter.
