Planned Parenthood Chief Cecile Richards was in receipt of some harsh comments, when she tried to use Mother’s Day as an opportunity to mock President Donald Trump for his attempts to repeal Obamacare.
“Nothing says ‘I love you, Mom!’ like standing up for the right of mothers everywhere to get the care they need,” Richards tweeted on Sunday evening. He tweet linked to an op-ed she wrote for the Time Magazine, on Sunday. In her op-ed, Richard bashed President Trump for supporting the American Health Care Act, which Richard believes would strip away health rights for women, and would affect many millions of Americans.
“This Mother’s Day, instead of taking your mom out to brunch or sending chocolate, commit to fighting for a government that recognizes that women deserve basic human rights and protections – including the right to decide when and whether to become a mom,” Richards wrote.
She argued, “The fact that mothers reproduce will now be our economic burden. Under this health care plan, being a woman will once again be a pre-existing condition in America.”
She added that Republicans are vouching towards denying women access to adequate birth control.
“Needless to say, the outlook for any woman hoping to avoid unintended pregnancy for the next four years is pretty bleak,” Richards wrote.
Throughout her op-ed Richard’s portrayed a dark image of the Republicans and recited Democratic talking points and mistruths, many of which were already challenged by the Republican policy leaders when AHCA was passed.
Richards went on the heights of encouraging readers to “commit to fighting” against Trump, instead of celebrating Mother’s Day.
However, what did not go unnoticed in the eyes of the public, was the fact that Richards leads the number one provider of abortion in America. Author, Connor Boyack reportedly tweeted, “@CecileRichards Nothing says “I hate you, child” by terminating his or her life.”
