Longtime Minnesota Planned Parenthood Leader Announces Retirement

Sarah Stoes, president and chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood’s Upper Midwest subsidiary, which includes Minnesota and four other states, announced Friday that she is stepping down from her position next year.

Stoes, who spent 20 years in the position and led the region’s largest sexual and reproductive health, education and advocacy service provider, said she would remain in the position until October 2022 while the Northern Central States Board of Directors seeks to replace her. …

Over the two decades, Stoesz has grown the Minnesota branch into one of the largest family planning subsidiaries in the country, starting in Minnesota and South Dakota and then adding North Dakota, Iowa, and Nebraska to become a five-state organization providing health care to more than 100,000 patients annually.

“The impartial care that Planned Parenthood provides is transforming our patients and our community,” Stoes said in a statement. “Working as President and CEO has been a lifelong opportunity and the greatest joy I could have imagined. I am incredibly proud of what we, together as a planning parenting community, have accomplished over the past 20 years, and now is the time to give way to new leadership. I am delighted to hand over this powerful organization to the next leader who will uphold our mission in this historic time for reproductive rights in our country. ”

Her departure came after the conservative majority in the US Supreme Court signaled their intention to weaken abortion rights that had existed in the aftermath of the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling.
