Outgoing Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards is accumulating endorsements for her book, “Make Trouble,” which will be released on April 3, The Daily Caller reports.
Among those singing its praises is Hillary Clinton, the former presidential candidate who Planned Parenthood hailed as a champion of abortion on demand.
“With humor, heart and hope, Cecile Richards offers practical advice and inspirations for aspiring leaders everywhere,” Clinton wrote.
Hillary Clinton received Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger award in 2009 and its Champion of the Century Award in 2017, LifeNews reported. Under Richards’ leadership, Planned Parenthood heavily contributed to Hillary Clinton’s 2017 presidential campaign.
Willie Parker, an abortionist who identifies as a Christian, also described Richards’ book as “a how-to manual for effecting change.” Parker is the same doctor who claims that his late-term abortions are a “ministry,” which he justifies by the supposed absence of Scriptures related to abortions.
U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Cal, wrote that “Make Trouble” is a “must-read for anyone hoping to make a difference and trying to figure out where to start.” Harris is the same Senator who mourned the tragic slaughter of babies in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shootings but decried the idea of banning the tragic slaughter of unborn babies 20 weeks and older in abortion clinics. Harris also prosecuted undercover investigators who exposed Planned Parenthood’s aborted baby body parts trade when she was the California attorney general.
What is this inspiring legacy that Cecile Richards cultivated and that national leaders are praising?
Richards is leaving Planned Parenthood embroiled in a scandal. In 2015, the Center for Medical Progress released undercover videos showing that Planned Parenthood may have engaged illegally in the trafficking of human body parts; three years later, Planned Parenthood was placed under investigation by the Department of Justice. Richards’ resignation came soon after, the Daily Caller reports.
Richards left behind a declining organization. LifeNews reported that Planned Parenthood lost 32 percent of its facilities during Richards’ tenure, and while she managed to maintain the abortion numbers and increase taxpayer funding, true woman’s health services—such as breast exams and cancer screenings— significantly declined.
An inspiring legacy, indeed.
