Planned Parenthood hosted a very private “Sex, Politics and Cocktails” party during the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia on Tuesday night where the group’s president expressed support for abortion and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher reported “hundreds of supporters lined up around the block to get into Union Transfer for Planned Parenthood’s invitation-only” soiree.
“I guess the last thing I’ll say is, to be on a stage where we can actually now talk openly about how abortion is a right,” Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards proclaimed. “We have to have it.”
Richards said “it’s no good to have a right if you can’t exercise it.”
The Planned Parenthood boss also heaped praise on Clinton, commending her talking about important issues “up front.”
“I cannot wait until this woman is in the White House,” she added.
