Hillary Clinton Received Abortion Award
While accepting an award from Planned Parenthood, Hillary Clinton says there's still much to do to advance the rights and opportunities of women and girls.
Clinton told a crowd of more than 1,000 Tuesday night at a New York fundraiser marking the 100th anniversary of the organization that such work is "the great unfinished business of the 21st century." She added that on some days, it seems even more unfinished that we'd hoped.
During her speech, Clinton called for expanded access to preventive services at Planned Parenthood, and for increased access and affordability of family planning, including long-acting reversible contraception.
In 2016 Planned Parenthood spent more than $30 million to help Clinton and other pro-abortion candidates get elected.
In 2009, Planned Parenthood gave Clinton its Margaret Sanger Award, named after its eugenicist founder.
Clinton described the award as a “great privilege,” according to Townhall. “… the overarching mission of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the cause of reproductive freedom that you continue to advance today is as relevant in our world now as it was 100 years ago.”
On the campaign trail last year, she thanked the abortion group for its work and promised to partner with it “for the long haul.” Clinton went on to thank the Planned Parenthood abortion activists for helping women who are victims of sexual assault even though the abortion company has been found to cover up cases of statutory rape, allowing rapists to rape again.
Planned Parenthood is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. In the past 100 years, it has destroyed the lives of an estimated 6.8 million unborn babies.
