Hillary Clinton Tells Planned Parenthood: “As Your President, I Will Always Have Your Back”

At a political rally on Sunday, pro-abortion presidential candidate Hillary Clinton accepted the endorsement of the Planned Parenthood abortion business and told its leadership that it would have her unqualified support as president. Fresh from months of expose’ videos catching its top officials selling the body parts of aborted babies, the abortion business plans to spend as much as $20 million to elect Clinton as president.

As local news reports indicate:

Before a fired-up crowd of primarily pink-clad women, Clinton alluded to the controversies the group has faced since a series of videos by anti-abortion activists were released in 2015. Clinton argued that Republicans would “accelerate the assault on access to safe and legal abortion” and that she is the person best positioned to beat them in November.

“I will always defend Planned Parenthood and I will say consistently and proudly, Planned Parenthood should be funded, supported and protected, not undermined, misrepresented and demonized,” Clinton said. “As your president, I will always have your back.”

Clinton was introduced by Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, who said Clinton was the “leader I trust in the White House to make sure women and families move forward.”

“In this election, with the attacks on women’s health and rights, more than ever before we don’t need a friend, a solid vote, a statement, we need a fighter,” Richards said about the former secretary of state.

Clinton understands what’s at stake in this presidential election: the long-term future of abortion and whether the Supreme Court will renew its support for unlimited abortions before birth or if it will overturn Roe v. Wade and allow states to offer legal protection for unborn children.

“We need a Democratic nominee who will be able to beat the Republicans and get the job done for Americans,” Clinton said before asking the audience that “the next president would easily appoint more than one justice to the Supreme Court.”

“That fight is not over either. Access to affordable birth control is still hanging in the balance at the Supreme Court,” Clinton said. “If a Republicans wins this election and gets the chance to stack the Supreme Court with right-wing justices, together they will accelerate the move to take America in the wrong direction on so many issues that you and I have fought for and many Americans take for granted.”

Cecile Richards, the president of the abortion business, said Hillary is “everything Planned Parenthood has believed in and fought for over the past 100 years.”

Marjorie Dannenfelser of the Susan B. Anthony List gave this response to LifeNews:

“In endorsing Hillary Clinton for president, Cecile Richards said that ‘everything Planned Parenthood has believed in and fought for over the past 100 years is on the ballot.’ She’s absolutely right. With the pathway created by the reconciliation process to defund Planned Parenthood, the pro-life movement is closer than ever before to achieving this longtime goal. If Americans elect a pro-life president, this legislation could be signed into law as soon as 2017.

“Planned Parenthood’s endorsement of Clinton is also a much-needed and welcome moment of clarity in this election. It is proof positive of her extremism on the abortion issue. Clinton is grossly out of step with the majority of Americans who support legislative proposals such as limiting abortion after five months and getting taxpayers out of the abortion business.

“Make no mistake, this radical position – sadly the norm for the Democratic Party – will cost Clinton votes in November. As DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz acknowledged this week, support for abortion on-demand, without limits, simply does not resonate with a younger generation.”

Clinton’s extreme position on abortion is clear. At a campaign event in August, she compared pro-lifers to terrorists. Then, during a September interview on CBS, Clinton said she would oppose a federal limit on abortion at any stage of pregnancy.

During the first Democratic presidential debate in October, Clinton defended Planned Parenthood although the abortion company has been caught selling aborted babies and their body parts. She said she was tired of the attacks from pro-life Republicans who have been working overtime to try to de-fund the abortion corporation.

“They don’t mind having big government interfere with a woman’s right to choose and to take down Planned Parenthood — they’re fine with big government when it comes to that,” Clinton said. “I’m sick of it.”

Clinton, who brought up Planned Parenthood unprompted during both debates, has been bending over backwards to protect and defend her friends at the abortion company, which will pull out all the stops in the 2016 election to ensure she takes over the White House from pro-abortion President Barack Obama.

Clinton, the Democratic front-runner in the presidential race, supports unlimited abortions up to birth – a radical stance that most Americans oppose.

In a Sept. 20 interview with CBS’ Face the Nation moderator John Dickerson, Hillary Clinton revealed that she wouldn’t support a federal limit on abortion “at any state of pregnancy” in the name of a “woman’s right to choose.” While the 2016 presidential candidate once called the content of the recent videos exposing Planned Parenthood “disturbing,” she dismissed them as “misleadingly edited” to Dickerson.

According to Clinton, women should have the say in any circumstance.

“[T]his gets back to whether you respect a woman’s right to choose or not,” she said. “And I think that’s what this whole argument once again is about.”
