The Planned Parenthood-Hillary Clinton love-fest on the campaign trail continues. Campaigning in Wisconsin ahead of the Midwestern state’s Tuesday primary, the head of the abortion business talked about how important it is for abortion backers to put Hillary in the White House.

Speaking for the abortion company, Richards said Hillary Clinton represents everything Planned Parenthood’s abortion business has stood for all these years.

“This is the big one,” Richards said. “This is a woman who has been standing for women her entire life.”

“This is sort of the pinnacle of everything we’ve fought for all our lives,” she said.

Richards said she believes Clinton is the most qualified presidential candidate the country has seen in her lifetime, citing her experience as first lady, in the U.S. Senate and as secretary of state.

Again noting the pro-choice voting records of other Democratic candidates, Richards argued there is “a difference between being a vote and being a leader.”

Richards also talked about Donald Trump’s controversial abortion comment initially saying he would support punishing women who have illegal abortions and later backtracking.

“I actually think what Donald Trump said about punishing women was very important. And it’s because it has, frankly, pulled the curtain back on the real agenda of the people who are running for president of the United States in the Republican party,” Richards said. “I feel like Donald Trump has now kind of opened this Pandora’s box, and they’re going to have to own it in this election. And I can tell you, there’s not a daylight of difference between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz and John Kasich, and the world needs to know it.”

In a new interview on Sunday, pro-abortion presidential candidate Hillary Clinton couldn’t have made her radical abortion views more clear. Clinton said unborn children simply do not have any Constitutional rights, which would include the right to life.

“The unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights,” Clinton said, adding that “the woman’s right to make decisions” is the be all and end all when it comes to abortion.
