Setting a new precedent Planned Parent will endorse Hillary Clinton on Sunday in Manchester, New Hampshire. This is the first time in 100 years that the group has endorsed any Presidential candidate.
“Let’s be clear — reproductive rights and health are on the ballot in 2016,” said Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards. “We’re proud to endorse Hillary Clinton for President of the United States.
“No other candidate in our nation’s history has demonstrated such a strong commitment to women or such a clear record on behalf of women’s health and rights,” she added. “This is about so much more than Planned Parenthood. Health care for an entire generation is at stake.”
Hillary responds to the endorsement,
As a lifelong Planned Parenthood supporter, I’m honored to have the endorsement of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund,” Clinton said in a statement. “There has never been a more important election when it comes to women’s health and reproductive rights—and Planned Parenthood’s patients, providers, and advocates across the country are a crucial line of defense against the dangerous agenda being advanced by every Republican candidate for president.
Sounds like Planned Parenthood is scared. They know if a Republican wins in 2016, they can kiss their funding goodbye.
