If you need additional proof that Hillary Clinton would the Planned Parenthood’s best friend if elected president, look no further. In an uncovered email from Hillary Clinton’s personal email server that the public interest group Judicial Watch uncovered, Hillary asks her staff to step up a meeting with her “friend” Cecile Richards, the CEO of the abortion company.

In March 2009, Hillary Clinton received Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger award at an event in Houston, but, beforehand, she emailed staffer Huma Abedin asking her to make arrangements to meet with Richards and other top abortion business officials.

In the email Clnton sent on March 18, Clinton wrote, “I’d like to see some friends at the Planned Parenthood event in Houston before the event, since I plan to leave after I speak. Can you set it up? I’d like to include Gina Glanz, Laurie Rubiner, Cecile Richards. Who else will be there?”

Not only did Clinton refer to Richards as a friend but Gina Glantz as well — who is the former board chair for Planned Parenthood. And Laurie Rubiner was a Planned Parenthood vice-president at the time — making it clear she considered all of the top brass at the abortion giant her “friends” and people she wanted to meet with privately.

SIGN THE PLEDGE! We Oppose Hillary Clinton!

During the event, Clinton said that emphasizing and promoting abortion is a key issue in President Barack Obama’s foreign policy. She also defended taxpayer funded abortions for poor women.

“Here at home there are still too many women who are denied their rights because of income, opposition, and attitudes that they harbor,” she said.

In April 2009 Representative Jeff Fortenberry pleaded with the Secretary of State to change her policy on exporting abortion, quoting Margaret Sanger as having said, “Today eugenics is suggested by the most diverse minds as the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political, and social problems.” (Click here to watch the entirety of their conversation.)

Mrs. Clinton responded “Well congressman, let me say with respect to your comments about Margaret Sanger, you know, I admire Thomas Jefferson. I admire his words and his leadership; and I deplore his unrepentant slave holding. I admire Margaret Sanger being a pioneer in trying to empower women to have some control over their bodies and I deplore statements that you have referenced. That is the way we often are when we look at flawed human beings; there are things we admire and things we deplore.”
