Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards has been stumping for Democrat presidential contender Hillary Clinton – the abortion business’ first endorsed candidate – in Dayton, Ohio.
Ahead of Ohio’s primary contests Tuesday, Richards touted Clinton’s “leading” record on women’s health care – a euphemism the organization frequently uses to mean “abortion.”

“I’m not for Hillary Clinton for president because she’s a woman… I am for Hillary Clinton because I’m a woman,” Richards said, reports the Dayton Daily News.
Richards slammed all the GOP 2016 candidates for their positions against abortion. Among them, only Donald Trump has praised the organization, stating it provides help for “millions and millions” of women with its other services.
“Basically, they want to take us back to the 1950s,” Richards said.
“The abortion part of Planned Parenthood is an important part of what we do,” she said, according to the Boston Globe.

In February, Ohio Gov. John Kasich – a GOP candidate – signed a bill that eliminates funding from Planned Parenthood in the Buckeye State.
The new law redirects $1.3 million in taxpayer funds from Planned Parenthood of Ohio to other health facilities, and it prohibits the state from entering into a contract for health services with any entity that performs or promotes non-therapeutic abortions.
Additionally, the legislation earmarks $250,000 in federal Medicaid funds exclusively for community health centers.
The bill was co-sponsored by Democratic Rep. Bill Patmon and Republican Rep. Margaret Conditt.
Michael Gonidakis, president of Ohio Right to Life, said Kasich is a remarkable pro-life candidate.
“There is no other candidate that has accomplished as much as he has in the past five years,” he said. “That is a verifiable fact.”
The group asserts that in the last five years, abortions in Ohio have decreased by 25 percent.
Richards has been campaigning for Clinton in other primary states as well.

Planned Parenthood and abortion political lobbying group NARAL are demanding their Democrat candidates come out in full-throated, unwavering support for abortion at any time during pregnancy. The abortion industry and the Democrat Party are in a fully co-dependent relationship, and both have much power and financial gain on the chopping block. The situation is especially dire since the recent video exposé of Planned Parenthood’s apparent practice of selling the body parts of aborted babies on the open market has drawn more scrutiny of the abortion business – as well as calls for the elimination of its taxpayer funding on both federal and state levels.

Hillary Clinton, the Washington Free Beacon reports, has “paid Planned Parenthood thousands of dollars using campaign funds.”
Four separate payments from Clinton’s campaign were received by the nation’s top abortion business as “reimbursements for ‘staff time’” for get out the vote efforts against rival Bernie Sanders.
And the feeling is apparently mutual. “Clinton received financial support from the organization, collecting more than $20,000 from executives and employees of the national organization and its regional affiliates—20 times more money than the rest of the presidential field combined,” the report states.
Additionally, all six of the Democrats on the House’s select panel investigating the fetal tissue practices of Planned Parenthood received contributions to their campaigns from the abortion business.
