Sexism and abortion go hand in hand. While Planned Parenthood regularly aborts little boy and girls, it preaches women’s rights and complains about a phony war on women that pro-life advocate are supposedly waging because they bother to care about human life before and after birth.

Last week, Cecile Richards, the president and CEO of the nation’s biggest abortion business, said she finds her hope elsewhere: in women who brag about killing their babies in abortions. Now, the abortion company director is complaining about men who want to protect women and unborn children from the horrors and dangers of abortions.

In a new interview, Cecile Richards responded to moves from pro-life advocates to ban abortions and restore legal protection for unborn children and support for those bans from elected officials who happen to be men.

“I take them very seriously,” Richards said of the threats to make abortion illegal again. “But honestly I’m just so sick of men telling us what to do with our bodies, and I would include Donald Trump in that category.“

So what about pro-life women like Carly Fiorina who oppose abortion? Do they have a right to speak up according to Planned Parenthood’s free speech police chief? Apparently not. From the report:

Richards criticized Trump, Cruz, and former candidate Carly Fiorina for employing “heightened rhetoric” around abortion to win points on the campaign trail. “The people of America don’t like when politicians put their own personal politics ahead of the health and lives of women,” she said.

Richards is hoping for a Supreme Court with a majority of women (so long as they’re not pro-life women).

“I was so proud to be there with three women on the Supreme Court. I don’t know if you all can appreciate what it has meant to finally begin to have some equity on the court and actually have the court begin to look more like America. We need to do more of that, and I can’t wait until we have a ninth judge,” she said. “Wouldn’t it be great if we had a female majority on the Supreme Court?” she added, to applause.

Heaven forbid that a pro-life man replace Justice Antonin Scalia. There’s no room for them in Richards’ sexist version of America where only people with certain body parts matter.
