The abortion giant Planned Parenthood is busy preparing for its annual gala in New York City.

The billion dollar “non-profit” plans to honor its outgoing president Cecile Richards at the event, along with transgender actress Laverne Cox of “Orange is the New Black,” WWD reports.

Tickets for the posh abortion benefit begin at $1,500. The most expensive “Inner Circle” tickets cost $100,000. The gala is scheduled for May 1 at Spring Studios in New York City.

Other notable guests include fashion designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler, actress Chloë Sevigny and artist Marilyn Minter.

Richards built quite a legacy for herself during her decade at the largest abortion business in America. Under her leadership, Planned Parenthood aborted approximately 3.5 million unborn babies and reaped in billions in taxpayer dollars.

Since 2006, Richards has drawn in a huge, nearly seven-figure salary leading the “non-profit.” During her tenure, Planned Parenthood saw huge drops in patient numbers and actual health services and scandal after scandal involving aborted baby body parts trafficking and sexual abuse cover-ups.

At the same time, the abortion chain reaped in record profits, including billions in taxpayer funding, and maintained a corner on the American abortion market. It ramped up its political advocacy and attacked numerous efforts to protect unborn and born babies from abortion.

Richards expanded political advocacy at Planned Parenthood. Her background was in politics, not health care. Previously, she worked for pro-abortion House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and the liberal advocacy group America Votes. She is the daughter of former Texas Gov. Ann Richards.

Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion business in America, aborting approximately 320,000 unborn babies every year. Its most recent annual report showed a record income of $1.46 billion, with about half a billion dollars coming from taxpayers.

In December, the U.S. Department of Justice said it is investigating whether the abortion chain illegally sold aborted baby body parts.

Richards announced her plans to resign in January.
