During last night’s Democrat convention, the head of the nation’s biggest abortion company blasted Republican nominee Donald Trump, saying his pro-life worldview and desire to see Roe v. Wade overturned is “disturbing.”

“Donald Trump has pledged to appoint justices who will overturn Roe v. Wade and undo decades of progress,” Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards Richards told a cheering crowd. “His policies aren’t just frightening, they’re rooted in a disturbing worldview.”

Here are the full remarks from the head of the abortion corporation:

You may have heard that the supreme court ruled that the taxes laws that forced abortion providers to close to bear — close their doors are dangerous and unconstitutional. But the fight is not over. Donald has pledged to appoint justices who will overturn roe versus wade and undo decades of progress. Donald Trump has called women fat pigs and dogs. He wants to punish women for having abortions. He calls pregnancy a “Inconvenience” for women’s employers.

Well, Mr. Trump, come this November, women are going to be a lot more than an inconvenience. Women are going to be the reason you’re not elected president. When my great-grandmother was growing up, women could not vote, under Texas law. Just two generations later, her granddaughter, and Richards, my mother, was elected governor of the state of Texas. Tonight, we are closer than ever to putting a woman in the white House. I can almost hear mom saying, “Well, it sure took you a long enough.” So, what do you say? Are you ready to make history? Let’s go win this election. Thank you.
