On Friday's episode of "The News & Why it Matters, the panel discussed why Planned Parenthood terminated Leana Wen as president last week after only 10 months.

In this clip, Pat Gray explained that Planned Parenthood directors determined that Wen was not aggressive enough, nor was she enough of a social justice warrior.

According to The Daily Wire, "Two sources told us that Wen also refused to use 'trans-inclusive' language, for example saying 'people' instead of 'women,' telling staff that she believed talking about transgender issues would 'isolate people in the Midwest,'" BuzzFeed News reporter Ema O'Connor said on Twitter Tuesday evening.

"You want a Planned Parenthood president that wants to kill every baby, don't ya?" Pat asked sarcastically.

Pat later added that conservatives were beginning to wake up to the issues surrounding abortion, and that radical views about the murder of babies was beginning to push Americans in the opposite direction.

"We have gone so far as a society we can't even admit that men can't get pregnant," Pat said.

Also on Tuesday, Alexis McGill Johnson was unanimously chosen by Planned Parenthood's board to step in as the acting president.

"I am proud to step in to serve as acting president and facilitate a smooth leadership transition in this critical moment for Planned Parenthood and the patients and communities we serve. I thank Dr. Wen for her service and her commitment to patients," McGill Johnson said.
