Cecile Richards: Planned Parenthood Has ‘Never Been More Popular’

‘I’m very optimistic about Planned Parenthood’


RICHARDS: "Well, I’m nervous about Congress. But I’m very optimistic about Planned Parenthood. I mean, we've never been more popular. We just hit 10 million supporters. And the reason we are popular is because 1 in 5 women in the country come to us for health care. What we are concerned about is when Paul Ryan said the second day of the Congress that he was going to move to try to block women from coming to Planned Parenthood. What we have seen is an outpouring of support and concern because for so many women we're their only heath care provider."
