‘Four Pinnochios’ For Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood’s false stat: ‘Thousands’ of women died every year before Roe

“We face a real situation where Roe could be overturned. And we know what will happen, which is that women will die. Thousands of women died every year pre-Roe.” 

— Leana Wen, president of Planned Parenthood, in an interview with WFAA of Dallas, March 6, 2019

“Before Roe v. Wade, thousands of women died every year — and because of extreme attacks on safe, legal abortion care, this could happen again right here in America.” 

— Wen, in a tweet, April 24

“We’re not going to go back in time to a time before Roe when thousands of women died every year because they didn’t have access to essential health care.” 

— Wen, interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” May 22
