Planned Parenthood to honor Hillary Clinton with the ‘Champion of the Century’ award for her pro-abortion support
Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will be given an award from Planned Parenthood at the organization’s centennial gala on May 2, 2017.
Clinton will receive the “Champion of the Century” award at Planned Parenthood’s “100 Years Strong: The Celebration of a Century” centennial celebration “for her 40 years of service to women and girls in this country,” according to Planned Parenthood’s press release.
Clinton was at the top of the Democratic party’s updated platform regarding abortion in 2016, which was the most pro-abortion platform in U.S. history. In fact, during the final debate of the presidential election, Clinton categorically defended late-term abortion, using a disingenuous definition “women’s health” to justify partial-birth procedures.
Planned Parenthood will also handout the “Champion of Change” award to producer Shonda Rhimes “for revolutionizing the way women and issues of reproductive health — including safe, legal abortion — are portrayed on television.”
Rhimes is the creator and producer behind Scandal, which aired a scene depicting the show’s main character undergoing an onscreen abortion while the Christmas song “Silent Night” played in the background.
National Review contributor Alexandra Desanctis writes that “These two awards are merely the latest proof that Planned Parenthood is not, in fact, an innocent defender of ‘women’s rights.’ Nor is it a ‘pro-choice’ organization that exists to give American women an array of health-care options. Planned Parenthood is an abortion corporation that seeks every possible opportunity to glorify abortion and deify the public figures who push for total access to government-funded abortion-on-demand.”
Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards stumped for Clinton’s campaign across the country in 2016, and her organization donated around $38 million to Democratic candidates at all levels in the last election cycle.
Planned Parenthood falsely claims that its clinics offer mammograms, though they have never done so. The group provides less than 1 percent of the nation’s Pap tests and less than 2 percent of its breast exams and cancer screenings, while performing 325,000 abortions annually
