SAN FRANCISCO – Glamour magazine announced that Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards will be one of the recipients of its “2015 Women of the Year” awards, a decision that Sue Ellen Browder, author of SUBVERTED, finds appalling.

“I understand why Glamour magazine editors are trying to defend what they consider their ‘right’ to abortion by naming Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards one of the recipients of its ‘2015 Women of the Year’ awards,” Browder said. “These editors sincerely believe, as I once foolishly believed when I was a pro-choice writer for Cosmopolitan magazine, that they are defending truth and justice for women, but they’re not. Pro-life feminists who see Planned Parenthood’s abortion business for the betrayal of women it truly is are appalled at Glamour’s failure to recognize the freedom of a woman to be a mother, whatever her situation or circumstances. I would like to remind both Planned Parenthood and its apologists at Glamour that Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger called abortion ‘barbaric’— and she was right.”

Browder’s personal story of how she helped the sexual revolution hijack the women’s movement — and its effects on her life and the future of America — is chronicled in her enthralling new book, SUBVERTED. She recounts why, as a longtime Cosmopolitan journalist — her dream jobshe was a dedicated follower of Sanger and fabricated numerous stories, with the approval of her editors, to sell the casual-sex lifestyle to millions of single, working women.
