Planned Parenthood executives and supporters were on
Capitol Hill this week lobbying lawmakers to protect the millions of dollars
the nation’s largest abortion provider gets from taxpayers every year and to
announce nationwide “speak-outs” during the upcoming congressional recesses.
House members, including Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), sponsored a Planned
Parenthood press conference. Lee praised the organization, which,
according to its 2016-2017 annual report,
ended the lives of 321,384 unborn children in that reporting year.

“Your work really
saves lives,” Lee said on Wednesday outside of the Capitol.
Lee praised the
recently passed Omnibus spending bill, which included funding for Planned
Parenthood despite the Republican majority in both congressional chambers and
GOP members’ vows to defund the abortion giant.

officer with a total income of $399,105. The 2015-2016 Form 990 still lists her
as the chief experience officer, but with a total income of $635,126. That’s a
59 percent increase in just three years.

In addition to her work with Planned Parenthood, Laguens is a member of
the board of directors of LPAC, which describes itself as “the first lesbian
Political Action Committee, with the mission of advancing women’s and LGBTQ
equality by working to influence the current political and social landscape and
to give lesbians a real and meaningful seat at the political table.”
Laguens’ LPAC biography gives her credit for “leading the successful
campaign to defeat the Pence amendment, a congressional effort to eliminate
Planned Parenthood’s access to federal funding. Since then she has shaped
(Planned Parenthood’s) message and strategy through the Komen Foundation’s
defunding of Planned Parenthood affiliates, defending insurance coverage for
birth control, and helping to reelect President Barack Obama.”

but Laguens has recently been in the spotlight, and Richards has praised her on
