Before presidential candidate Hillary Clinton spoke at Planned Parenthood event last week, its CEO Cecile Richards had a few things of her own to say.

Breitbart reported that the CEO of the abortion business made the introductory comments to the former first lady’s speech, during which she praised her corporation and Hillary for protecting women’s “right” to have an abortion.

Richards stated:

The right of women to control their reproductive destiny and the courageous fight for the right to vote shaped the opportunities for millions of women and families…

When my great-grandmother was a girl, women couldn’t vote under Texas law, and yet two generations later, her granddaughter, Ann Richards, was elected governor of the state of Texas…

For 100 years, Planned Parenthood has allowed people to live out their dreams, and largely because women can now access birth control and legal abortion.

She went on to restate her support for the Democratic nominee:

And when the Planned Parenthood Action Fund and all of us do our work right, over the next five months, we will proudly be part of electing the first woman president of the United States of America. But, this isn’t about electing any woman to the White House, this is about electing this woman – Hillary Clinton.

Richards gave examples of women who came to Planned Parenthood for “their health” and “future.” After praising her business, Richards endorsed Hillary.

SIGN THE PETITION! Congress Must De-Fund Planned Parenthood Immediately

“… trust is earned by actions, not by words, which is why the Planned Parenthood Action Fund has trusted Hillary Clinton,” Richards said.

“And in the White House, who do we trust to repeal the Hyde Amendment,” she continued, “to fix the Helms amendment, and defend the right of all people to reproductive healthcare, including at Planned Parenthood? – Hillary Clinton.”

The Hyde Amendment prohibits the funding of most abortions using taxpayer dollars. Similarly, the Helms amendment says that taxpayer funds for foreign assistance cannot be used to “pay for the performance of abortion as a method of family planning or to motivate or coerce any person to practice abortions.” Clinton has said more taxpayer money needs to go to the Planned Parenthood abortion business.

She also has publicly supported Planned Parenthood, despite – and even in midst of – last year’s video scandal involving the sale of aborted babies’ body parts. In January, Clinton stated: “I will always defend Planned Parenthood. And I will say – consistently and proudly – Planned Parenthood should be funded, supported, and appreciated; not undermined, misrepresented, and demonized.”

At a presidential forum at Drake University recently, Clinton even called abortion, the ending of the life of another human being, a “fundamental human right.”

Cecile Richards and Hillary Clinton are both radical in their views on abortion. Although they insist that their first concern is women, new evidence is continuously proving that Planned Parenthood’s main concern is purely fiscal.
