Planned Parenthood “Thrilled” at Election Outcome

The day after last week’s election, Planned Parenthood Federation of America President Cecile Richards said she was “thrilled” that President Barack Obama was reelected, because it ensures four more years of free birth control with no co-pays, and increased access to affordable care.

Calling the nation’s biggest abortion provider “a voice for women’s health and rights,” Richards warned that opposition to Obamacare and its birth control and abortifacient mandate is “strong.”

She wrote, “It’s still hard to believe that so many politicians were prepared to cut women off from cancer screenings and birth control just to make a political point — and you can bet they won’t be quiet in the weeks and months to come,” Richards said she is “confident the group can take on any fights to come.”
