The Senate has voted overwhelmingly to confirm Julian Castro as the new secretary of Housing and Urban Development. The vote was 71-27, with 18 Republicans supporting the prominent Latino Democrat.
Shortly after the confirmation – abortion giant Planned Parenthood’s president Cecile Richards called Castro her friend and tweeted this congratulations:
Castro, 39, has served for three terms as mayor of San Antonio, and was the keynote speaker at the 2012 Democratic National Convention.
Castro supported Planned Parenthood’s effort to derail a late term abortion ban in Texas.
According to the abortion giant, Mayor Julián Castro joined the radically pro-choice Stand With Texas Women bus tour rally in San Antonio.
Castro is also a long time supporter of pro-abortion Gubernatorial Texas hopeful – Wendy Davis:
If you are known by the friends you keep than this new HUD Secretary confirmation is a disgrace!
