Planned Parenthood abortion business CEO Cecile Richards campaigned for Hillary Clinton over the weekend and said abortion activists should vote for her because pro-life supporters want to “get rid of Planned Parenthood.” Richards and the Clinton campaign have been joined at the hp from the beginning and Planned Parenthood made its first-ever presidential endorsement supporting Clinton.

Richards campaigned at Brown University, the very liberal Ivy League school that is her alma mater and, as she always does, falsely equated opposing abortion with opposing health care for women:

President of Planned Parenthood Cecile Richards ’80 spoke on campus Friday to advocate for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in her presidential campaign, highlighting Clinton’s support for women’s rights and health.

Richards addressed the Republican candidates in the race as she stressed the importance of women’s health. “They’ve all pledged to get rid of Planned Parenthood and deny folks access to basic health care, so I just think the stakes are enormously high,” Richards said. “That’s going to become clearer and clearer as we get towards November.”

Richards was joined in her support for Clinton by Gold medal-winning figure skater Michelle Kwan:

SIGN THE PLEDGE! We Oppose Hillary Clinton!

Richards was introduced by U.S. Rep. David Cicilline ’83, D-RI, and Michelle Kwan, a two-time Olympic medalist in figure skating who worked for the Department of State after returning to school to study international relations and political science at the end of her career.

Kwan emphasized Clinton’s knowledge of foreign and domestic policy, as well as her commitment to families. “We need somebody with experience — somebody that will fight for us,” Kwan said. “So will you fight for her?”

Richards has been the “most eloquent voice” responding to “often insane, crazy, vicious attacks” on a woman’s right to make decisions about her body, Cicilline said. “That’s an issue on which we won’t compromise as Democrats,” he added. “Our nation owes her a tremendous debt.”

The campaign stop for Clinton comes on the heels of Richards speaking at “Catholic” Georgetown University — where she claimed abortion is a human right.

During an interview on The View recently Hillary Clinton said an unborn child just hours before delivery should have no Constitutional rights. Her comments came just days after Clinton said unborn children simply do not have any Constitutional rights, which would include the right to life.
