Peter Brownlie, local chief executive of Planned Parenthood, is retiring

When Peter Brownlie arrived in Kansas to lead Planned Parenthood in 1999, he expected tough fights over abortion. But a grand jury investigation? A criminal indictment? A law that came within an hour of closing the state’s abortion clinics? Brownlie survived each of those challenges at Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri. Now as he plans to retire by next spring, Brownlie declares victory.
