Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards said what women really “need” for Valentine’s Day are “safe” and “legal” abortions.
In a brief Vine video posted to Twitter Monday, Richards held up a series of cue cards with the prompt, “#WhatWomenNeed…for Valentine’s Day.”
Written on the cards were “maternity care,” “cancer screenings,” “birth control” and “safe + legal” abortions.
