This week, the State Department released emails from Hillary Clinton’s private server and one was from a Planned Parenthood executive praising her for promoting abortion and urging her to speak out against a measure in Kenya to include in its new constitution language asserting that “life begins at conception.”

CNS News reports that in 2009 Clinton received an email from Planned Parenthood’s vice president of public policy and advocacy, Laurie Rubiner, and she told her she was her “personal hero.” She thanked Clinton on behalf of their organization and asked her to speak against the Kenya initiative in her next trip to the country.

She said, “Religious groups are on a concerted crusade to include new language in the Constitution which would codify that ‘life begins at conception. I know it is asking a lot, but if there is any way that you could draw attention to this issue when you are in Kenya, you would be even more of my personal hero than you already are.” Later she said, “We are all so grateful that you are there!”

In a separate email, Rubiner thanked Clinton for her efforts to get more funding in the 2011 budget for “international family planning.” She said, “You guys are totally great. Please thank Secretary Clinton for us – we know it wouldn’t have happened without her and all of you.” Additionally, Rubiner included a message in the email from Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards that said, “The women of the world have true friends in Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and the Obama administration.”

The emails were sent four months after Clinton received Planned Parenthood’s annual Margaret Sanger award; and when she received it she praised the eugenicist for “her courage, her tenacity, her vision.” As LifeNews previously reported, Sanger wrote a few books that revealed how she viewed minorities and the poor. In her book, “Pivot of Civilization,” she describes African-Americans and immigrants as “human weeds,” “reckless breeders,” and “spawning… human beings who never should have been born.”

Then, in “Woman and the New Race,” Sanger argues that people shouldn’t have large families because they tend to involve poverty and illness. In fact, she said it is better for everyone involved if a child’s life is snuffed out before he or she has a chance to cause problems for their family. She said, “[We should] apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.”

In August, Clinton compared pro-lifers to terrorists while on the campaign trail in Ohio. She said, “Now, extreme views about women, we expect that from some of the terrorist groups, we expect that from people who don’t want to live in the modern world, but it’s a little hard to take from Republicans who want to be the president of the United States.”

After four shocking videos that caught Planned Parenthood doctors discussing and arranging the sale of body parts of aborted babiesClinton came to a conclusion about the abortion businesses’ horrific practice. In a tweet on twitter, Clinton said she is “proud to stand with Planned Parenthood.” Instead of condemning the practice of selling aborted baby body parts, Clinton rose to the defense of the beleaguered abortion corporation, saying Planned Parenthood offers “important services.”
