Hillary Clinton will receive a consolation prize from one of her top supporters, Planned Parenthood, in May.
The abortion chain announced Thursday that it chose the failed presidential candidate to receive its “Champion of the Century” award for “her 40 years of service to women and girls in this country.” The award will be given to her during Planned Parenthood’s 100th anniversary gala in May.
Clinton lost the presidential election, despite strong support and expectations from the abortion chain. Planned Parenthood spent more than $30 million to help Clinton and other pro-abortion candidates get elected. Most of the candidates lost after touting radical pro-abortion platforms, including forcing taxpayers to directly fund abortions.
Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards also was involved heavily in Clinton’s campaign, traveling to dozens of states to stump for her. Clinton supported the abortion group’s hopes of forcing taxpayers to directly fund abortions, and she promised to nominate Supreme Court justices who would uphold Roe v. Wade and abortion on demand up until birth, if elected.
This is not Clinton’s first award from the nation’s largest abortion provider. In 2009, Planned Parenthood gave Clinton its Margaret Sanger Award, named after its eugenicist founder.
Clinton described the award as a “great privilege,” according to Townhall. “… the overarching mission of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the cause of reproductive freedom that you continue to advance today is as relevant in our world now as it was 100 years ago.”
On the campaign trail last year, she thanked the abortion group for its work and promised to partner with it “for the long haul.” Clinton went on to thank the Planned Parenthood abortion activists for helping women who are victims of sexual assault even though the abortion company has been found to cover up cases of statutory rape, allowing rapists to rape again.
Planned Parenthood is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. In the past 100 years, it has destroyed the lives of an estimated 6.8 million unborn babies.
