She isn’t a doctor, and her background is in politics, not medicine.
Yet, the New England Journal of Medicine gave Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards space on its pages this month as if she was an expert in women’s medicine. Richards’ article, “Protecting and Expanding Access to Birth Control” is dated March 3, 2016 and listed under the heading “Perspective.”
Richards does not mention abortion in the article, though her group does more abortions than any other business in the U.S. However, she repeatedly emphasizes women’s access to “all forms of birth control,” some of which may cause abortions.
