Cecile Richards, who made millions of dollars running the largest abortion business in America, now says she may run for office some day.

In an interview with Politico, the former Planned Parenthood CEO said she has “thought about” running for election. Richards has been asked the question repeatedly since announcing her resignation earlier this year. In August, Richards told Bustle that running for office was not one of her goals.

But now, she is hinting otherwise:

When asked whether she’s ever thought about running, the former Planned Parenthood president told POLITICO’s Anna Palmer that she has “thought about it.”

“I’ve been an organizer and an agitator, and that’s always been kind of my place,” Richards said in the most recent Women Rule podcast episode, recorded live at the Texas Tribune Festival. “That’s what I’m doing now. … I’m helping every single woman in this country I can get elected in November, because I think it’s going to change our democracy, and I have enormous respect for the women who are in office.”

And then she added this teaser about her own political prospects: “So we’ll see. We’ll see what’s next.”

She also encouraged more pro-abortion Democrat women to run for office.

“It is time for the Democratic Party to recognize half of our delegation, at least, should be women,” Richards said. “Because it makes a difference.”

Richards is the daughter of former Texas Gov. Ann Richards and a former deputy chief of staff to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, a pro-abortion Democrat. She ran Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in America, for 10 years and made nearly $1 million a year as the “non-profit’s” leader.

Though not longer at Planned Parenthood, she continues to promote that same anti-woman, anti-child agenda that has led to the legalized killing of nearly 1 million unborn babies a year.

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 plans to resign from Planned Parenthood in January.
