Clinton vowed her support for these issues during a speech Friday evening at the Planned Parenthood’s national conference in Houston. She was honored by Planned Parenthood…the nation’s leading abortionist…. with its Margaret Sanger Award, the organization’s highest honor, for her work throughout her public service career on behalf of women’s health and reproductive rights. Clinton said these rights are building blocks of democracy as societies that deny and demean women’s roles are ones more likely to engage in behavior that is negative, antidemocratic and that leads to violence and extremism.
