Cecile Richards Says She Expects Roe V. Wade To Be Back On The Ballot Soon
In today’s interview with Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards lamented that the 2016 Republican presidential candidates “make Mitt Romney look like a liberal.” She said although she believes most Americans support safe and legal abortion, she expects to see Roe V. Wade back on the ballot soon because conservative policymakers want it overturned.
Planned Parenthood has been under fire since the release of those bogus undercover videos, which made it appear as though the 99-year-old organization was in the business of selling fetal tissue. In reality, women who selected to have an abortion were offered the option to donate their fetal tissues for medical research, and Planned Parenthood received reimbursement for transport costs of the tissues. That’s it!
Still, PP haters abound and Richards told Couric this is making it harder to find people willing to work for Planned Parenthood. “It’s very tough,” she said, adding that threats from extremists are commonplace for anyone working in the area of reproductive rights.
