Planned Parenthood Global welcomes incoming Executive Director Monica Kerrigan

“I am honored to step in as the Executive Director of Planned Parenthood Global, an organization with a long history of supporting partners to provide and protect the sexual and reproductive health and rights of people around the world, including safe abortion. At this moment in history when the stakes for abortion access are so high in the U.S. and globally, Planned Parenthood is fighting back, because abortion is health care and health care is a human right. I am excited to continue in this great tradition of service and advocacy and to work alongside the Planned Parenthood team who is so committed to global health.” — Monica Kerrigan, MPH
