On Friday, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards announced that she was stepping down from her position to help Democrats with their 2018 elections.
Her speech on leading the murderous organization is sickening, as she gleamed and smiled about her bloody hand in killing unborn children.
“Leading Planned Parenthood over the last 12 years has been the honor of my lifetime,” she continued, “I will be leaving the organization well-positioned to serve and fight for our patients for a century more. Every day we see the incredible power that grassroots voices can have — there has never been a better moment to be an activist.”
Richards will meet with the organization’s board on Friday and Saturday to discuss her official end date and the search to replace her, according to The New York Times.
She told the newspaper she would pour herself into the midterm elections through fundraising and campaigning for Democrats, and advising the record number of women candidates.
“As a lifetime organizer, I’ve never been more excited, despite this Congress and this presidency,” she added, “There’s this kind of organic activism by women.”
House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said that said Richards’s leadership at PP will be “deeply missed.”
“Her brilliant leadership of Planned Parenthood has advanced tremendous progress in the fight to expand access to quality, affordable health care for all and to uphold a woman’s right to control her own private health decisions,” Pelosi continued.
“As an organizer, activist and leader, Cecile has helped launch a nationwide movement to defend and advance women’s rights, and in doing so, she has inspired countless women to march, vote, run and win. Her leadership will be deeply missed, but I am confident that Cecile will continue to be a warrior for all women as she begins the next chapter of her journey,” she concluded.
