(LifeNews) Faye Wattleton, who was president of Planned Parenthood from 1987 to 1992, spoke with W magazine recently about the abortion giant’s 101st anniversary Monday. Wattleton said that she “would like to think that where we have tried to lead is that we’ve tried to say that this is about liberation for women,” but also went on to emphasize “sexuality is a part of who we are as creatures, from infancy, even during gestation.”

“Interestingly, Planned Parenthood was started by a woman who wasn’t so concerned about parenthood as she was about women’s sexual and reproductive liberation,” Wattleton pointed out in the interview. “Her view was that women should be able to enjoy their sexuality as a normal part of being human, and that they should not be susceptible to unintended pregnancy as a result of not having the means to control that fertility.”

“I would like to think that where we have tried to lead is that we’ve tried to say that this is about liberation for women,” she explained, “but also, it’s really about a world in which we can make our personal choices without other people dictating those choices.”
