Cecile Richards on Trump Comments: "Repulsive"
Contact: Planned Parenthood Action Fund Media Office, 212-261-4433
Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Action Fund, released the following statement regarding recent footage of Donald Trump making disgusting, lewd comments about women:
“Donald Trump's comments are repulsive and equivalent to sexual assault. Women are assaulted and harassed every day in this country. To have a presidential candidate engage in it himself or claim that it is in any way acceptable is both unfathomable and an excuse for harassment from others.
"Trump has spent his entire life degrading and objectifying women. On November 8, women are going to make sure his brief, misogynistic and terrifying foray into politics comes to an abrupt end."
