Last September, former Planned Parenthood CEO Dr. Leana Wen announced that we as a nation were “nowhere near” letting kids go to school without masks. By December, she was telling CNN that “cloth masks are little more than facial decoration,” and nothing short of an N95 mask would provide any protection. By February, she was saying that lifting mask mandates was the right step. By the time the State of the Union address rolled around in March, Wen was tweeting how great it was to see a packed room of leaders without masks.

Yes, she did a 180 on masking, but as she clarified, there were just two camps on masking; there was a third, the ones who were pro-restrictions before but realized that it was a different time now.

Now Wen is in the Washington Post explaining why she won’t be masking her young children as they head back to school this year.

But then came the extremely contagious Omicron variant, and it looked like it was impossible to escape infection:

But … last August the American Academy of Pediatrics tweeted that there weren’t any studies showing that masking impeded children’s language development. They didn’t say it didn’t … they just said there were no studies.

So she was OK with limiting her children’s activities “for a year or two,” and she was also for mandating that your child’s activities be limited too.

She’s actually taking heat from both sides — a lot of pro-maskers can’t believe she sold out and wants everybody dead.
