Planned Parenthood fires top exec over allegations of racism
A top executive at the Planned Parenthood Federation of America has been fired over allegations of racism.
The organization's board of directors announced Tuesday that they had "parted ways" Monday with LauraMcQuade, who had served as chief executive of Planned Parenthood of Greater New York since 2017, the New York Times reported. The news came after allegations of both abusive and discriminatory behavior towards black Planned Parenthood employees.
Hundreds of employees formed a group called Save PPGNY and spoke out against McQuade in the form of letters - letters that demanded she be removed from her position.
"We reject what we view as McQuade's Trumpian leadership style," one of the letters said, according to the Times, "and envision a Planned Parenthood where all our staff, in particular our black and other staff of color, are honored for their expertise and included in the decision-making process."

NY Planned Parenthood CEO Ousted Over Accusations of Abuse, 'Systemic Racism
Former and current employees at Planned Parenthood have accused LauraMcQuade, the now-ex-CEO of the abortion business' Greater New York clinic, of "systemic racism" and abuse.
McQuade was ousted after more than 300 present and erstwhile staffers at Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider, signed an open letter published late last week, calling for her to be terminated as the chief executive of the New York branch, which McQuade had led since 2017, when she moved there after leading the Planned Parenthood of the Great Plains affiliate for three years, according to a new report from The Kansas City Star.
In part, the letter read, "The CEO of Planned Parenthood of Greater New York (PPGNY), LauraMcQuade, has proven to be a toxic leader and autocrat, and we, the current and former staff of Planned Parenthood of Greater New York, write this letter to demand her immediate removal."
