Cecile Richards on Hillary Clinton’s DC Primary Win
Contact: Planned Parenthood Action Fund Media Office, 212-261-4433
“Hillary Clinton has proven herself to be the fighter Americans need in the White House time and time again, and her overwhelming success in the DC Democratic primary is testament to that.
“Last Friday, Hillary addressed over 1,200 members of Planned Parenthood Action Fund in her first speech since clinching the nomination. In the boldest speech on reproductive rights we have ever heard from a presidential candidate, her commitment to reproductive freedom, health equity, and opportunity for all was resoundingly clear. Make no mistake: access to reproductive health care and including abortion are on the ballot this year. Tonight, our nation’s capital echoed the sentiment around the nation – that we’re with Hillary Clinton because she’s always been with us.”
