WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton spoke at a Planned Parenthood event in Washington, D.C. Clinton is a radical pro-abortion advocate who promised Planned Parenthood, “As your president, I will always have your back” after Planned Parenthood, for the first time, publicly endorsed someone in a presidential primary in January.
Their endorsement is telling: “There’s no question: Hillary Clinton holds the strongest record on reproductive rights of all presidential contenders in not just this election, but in American history.” Planned Parenthood is confident that Clinton will deliver on their radical pro-abortion agenda.
In response to today’s event, many pro-life activists are taking charge by standing up for true female empowerment and rallying against the Clinton/Planned Parenthood abortion-promoting duo.
Arina Grossu, FRC Action’s Director of the Center for Human Dignity commented:
“If elected president, Hillary Clinton would absolutely push radical policies that betray women and kill preborn babies. She would also push for the nomination of pro-abortion Supreme Court justices, which will have far-reaching consequences. She received $20 million from Planned Parenthood, America’s number one baby-killer and an organization that lies to vulnerable women for profit. Abortion is the ultimate exploitation of women. Clinton and Planned Parenthood have betrayed women by continuing to sell them the abortion industry’s lies.”
The women released this joint statement:
“As female leaders of the pro-life movement who represent millions of women of all ages, we cannot celebrate this first nomination of a woman for the office of the U.S. president by a major political party because of Hillary Clinton’s radical pro-abortion record and alliance with the abortion lobby. The unholy alliance between Clinton and Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion chain, is disgraceful.
“Planned Parenthood receives over $500 million in taxpayer money annually, then funnels tens of millions of dollars to candidates like Clinton to further its agenda and increase its bottom line. They both profit from the abortion industry in a self-serving cycle. Instead of empowering women, Clinton and Planned Parenthood lie to women, betray women, and sell out women and children, all in the name of profit. Hillary Clinton and Planned Parenthood do not represent us.”
