Statement from Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Action Fund
“Ahead of the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday, Hillary Clinton again showed that she is the candidate who will get results to continue moving our country forward. In her own words, she continued to display her vision for America -- one that is more inclusive and more just for all people, without barriers in reaching their fullest potential."
Hillary Clinton on the inequalities Americans still face:
"I'm asking both your heart and your head vote with you on Tuesday, because we have a lot of work that can only be done because your heart is moved. We didn't get to talk about the continuing struggles that Americans face with racism, with sexism, with discrimination against the LGBT community, with new Americans, with people with disabilities. Yes -- we have income inequalities and other forms of inequalities that we need to stand up against and diminish from our society."
