    Seems to me it was the pro life people who passed the very restrictive anti abortion laws that led to her departure.

    From the Reuter’s article I posted.


    The federation's board, however, decided to "double down" on making abortion rights a key priority as the group engages in legal and political battles after some states passed severe restrictions women's ability to terminate pregnancies, Wen said.
    "With the landscape changing dramatically in the last several months and the right to safe, legal abortion care under attack like never before, I understand the shift in the board's prioritization,"
    she said in a statement posted on Twitter.

    New laws can change the entire landscape for any service or industry. That means there may be many employees not prepared to deal with them. The proposed new laws may have created the need for a greater response to support abortion rights at PP...if they believe another person would be better in Wen's role to lead that initiative to fight more...it's very reasonable.

    IMO it's not a reflection on Wen, I liked her focus on women's healthcare and hope she is well-received elsewhere.

    I agree.

    From the New York Times :



    Dr. Wen’s replacement, Ms. McGill Johnson, has served on Planned Parenthood’s board for nearly a decade, including previously as its chairwoman.

    “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,”
    Ms. McGill Johnson said in a statement. “I thank Dr. Wen for her service and her commitment to patients.”

    From the following Reuters article:

    Ah, well, didn't Roe v. Wade give the states that authority?

    No. The states can only take interest after viability, approx 24 weeks.

    And all the proposed new laws attempting earlier restrictions have been blocked so far. I dont think any have been enacted.

    No. States can take a compelling interest after viability and proscribe ( ban ) abortions after viability with is about 23 to 24 weeks .

    Casey says states cannot cause women an undue burden when seeking a legal abortion.

    And Whole Woman’s Health v Hellerstedt strict down Texas laws that required abortion doctors
    have admitting privilege s at a nearby hospital.
    From Wiki :

    Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt, 579 U.S. ___ (2016), is a landmark United States Supreme Court case decided on June 27, 2016. The Court ruled 5–3 that Texas cannot place restrictions on the delivery of abortion services that create an undue burden for women seeking an abortion.
