Planned Parenthood, the influential US women’s health care provider said Thursday it was backing Hillary Clinton for president.
As Reported By AFP:
The move will be a political and funding boon for the former secretary of state, who is a strong supporter of Planned Parenthood, which said its advocacy organizations would spend at least $20 million in the 2016 election cycle to help elect the Democratic frontrunner. “We’re proud to endorse Hillary Clinton for president of the United States,” in a statement.
It is the first time the 100-year-old organization is endorsing a candidate in the primary process, which kicks off in three weeks in the heartland state of Iowa.
