Wendy Davis might be the next president of Planned Parenthood

[Ed. – Abortion Barbie]

Wendy Davis, who rocketed to political fame five years ago for filibustering limits on late-term abortions in the Texas senate, is reportedly up for the top job at Planned Parenthood, the organization that performs roughly one-third of all abortions in the U.S. each year, according to its own statistics.

Outgoing president Cecile Richards is set to depart the organization in May, and Politico reported earlier this week that Davis is “one of several Democratic women who are privately being discussed among Democratic operatives and donors as a potential successor.”

Asked by Politico whether she could envision herself running the group at some point, Davis declined to answer the question directly, but pivoted to praise their work. “Planned Parenthood and the mission of Planned Parenthood — the health care provided by Planned Parenthood — is always going to be part of the core of who I am,” she told the outlet. “I’m so proud that I’ve had an opportunity to travel all over this country and help Planned Parenthood affiliates to be successful.”
