PPFA

New Planned Parenthood CEO knows all the pro-abortion talking points

By Dave Andrusko

Sydney Etheredge, the new CEO of Planned Parenthood of Western Pennsylvania [PPWP], is the first Chief Executive Officer  in nearly 40 years. According to the Pittsburgh City Paper she replaces Kimberlee Evert, who retired in July 2021, after 37 years.

But fear not (so to speak). Etheredge worked for the national office of PPFA for a decade so she knows all the talking points by heart. 

For example, she told Jordana Rosenfeld she is excited about “being here and getting the opportunity to step into this role as someone who has seen so many, and has looked up to so many of the Planned Parenthood CEOs who have come before me and people like Kim [Everett] and others in the network … I feel so honored to be here and be in a city and a region that I just love so much.” 

Etheredge said she is preparing for a possible influx of women as nearby Ohio passes one protective law after another. Etheredge says “she would want patients, ‘whether they’re in our region or in sister regions and states nearby,’ to know that PPWP is ‘somewhere they could go’ for life-saving medical care like abortion.”

And not just Ohio. “It’s a pretty hostile time for sexual and reproductive health care and for abortion care,” says Etheredge. “It is really important that we stay focused on understanding that these bans like what we’re seeing in Mississippi could potentially happen in a state like Pennsylvania.”

Meanwhile, she told Rosenfeld she is looking for allies. “Etheredge says she is also working with other local leaders to do contingency planning for possible scenarios, ‘preparing for what could be the worst and hoping for the best.’” 

Planned Parenthood has a horrific track record, having aborted  more than 8 million unborn babies since Roe v. Wade opened the flood gates. Its most recent annual report showed a record number of abortions in 2020: 354,871—40% of all abortions in the U.S.– versus only 8,626 prenatal services. 

In an amazing response, Etheredge says

“I think there is always a tension or a question of, ‘Is sexual and reproductive health care, primary care? Or is it not?’” she says. “I think if you ask, you know, a woman or a person with a uterus, they would say that reproductive health care is primary care. But within our health care system, it’s not typically viewed that way.”

No, it’s not. Because abortion is not health care and never will be!
