In a tweet over the weekend on her Twitter page, female physician and Senior Policy Advisor for The Catholic Association Grazie Pozo Christie, M.D. called out Planned Parenthood President Leana Wen, M.D. on abortion, saying, “Abortion isn’t ‘care.’”

“Abortion isn’t ‘care’, [sic]” wrote Dr. Grazie Christie in a tweet. “[I]t’s the ending of a human’s life. #HydeAmendment protects Americans from paying for killing of innocents.”

Dr. Christie’s tweet came in response to a tweet by Planned Parenthood President Leana Wen, M.D., who wrote on June 8, 2019:

“‘Supporting Hyde isn’t good policy or politics.’ -- Kelley Robinson, Executive Director of @PPact

“We must fight for a world where all people are able to access safe, legal abortion care—regardless of how much money they make. #BeBoldEndHyde”

The Planned Parenthood president’s tweet included a link to a piece by “The Cut” titled “Why the Debate Over the Hyde Amendment Is Back – and What It Means.” The piece suggests, in part, that the Hyde Amendment “has made it so that women who want to end a pregnancy but rely on Medicaid — disproportionately, women of color — have to choose between paying out of pocket for abortion services, or carrying a pregnancy to term, unless they meet the three narrow exceptions.”

As reported by CNSNews.com, Dr. Christie addressed a comment by Planned Parenthood President Leana Wen, M.D. last week in a similar fashion, writing in a tweet, “ABORTION DOESN’T IMPROVE A MOTHERS HEALTH.”
