Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards affirms to Rep. Diane Black (R-TN) and other members of the House Oversight Committee her belief that: “Abortion is healthcare.”




Black, the author of a bill that passed the House and would redirect taxpayer funds from Planned Parenthood to other federally qualified health care centers that do not provide abortions, challenged Richards on why she dismissed her legislation as not acceptable to women when those other healthcare centers outnumber Planned Parenthood clinics 20 to 1. Richards responded that they do not provide abortions and “abortion is healthcare.”

Richards, who said that she once worked as a labor organizer and then for House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), earns nearly $600,000 per year as the head of the nation’s largest provider of abortions. She also receives compensation for Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the lobbying arm of the organization. Continue reading at breitbart.com.
