Leana Wen, who was removed from her role as President of Planned Parenthood last month, will teach at The George Washington University this fall.
Wen’s employment with Planned Parenthood was terminated in July over an alleged dispute about the future direction of the organization.
According to a tweet by Wen, she will serve as a distinguished fellow in the Fitzhugh Mullan Institute for Workforce Equity, which is an institution that promotes social justice in health care fields.
Honored to join exceptional colleagues @GWpublichealth @GW_Workforce to train future generations of public health leaders who are dedicated to achieving health equity and fighting for social justice. https://t.co/gHV7sdLaVQ

It’s no surprise that an institution as liberal as GW would hire someone like Wen, who had an instrumental role in the murder of over 300,000 innocent lives in 2017 alone. In the past, GW even hired Jesse Morton, a former recruiter for al-Qaeda, to teach at the university.
The GW YAF chapter has plans to push back against Wen’s hiring. “It’s really on brand for GW to do something like this,” GW YAF President Matthew Mastroberti said. “We plan on inviting Leana Wen to our pro-life events, and showing GW that while they can hire the former president of Planned Parenthood, the pro-life movement is a force to be reckoned with on campus.”
