The Planned Parenthood prez also saluted Pennsylvania’s Governor for having been an abortion clinic escort, as she did back in January when Tom Wolf took office.

Richards called Gov Wolf, “the first governor in the history of the country who was also a former Planned Parenthood clinic escort.”

What she failed to say is that Pennsylvania was also the home of doctor, Kermit Gosnell who is serving time in prison for snipping the spinal cords of babies he delivered and then killed at his rarely inspected House of Horrors abortion clinic.

In fact, it was the “Progressives” in the state which failed to inspect and investigate Gosnell – then after his atrocities came to the light of day they all ran for cover to denounce him.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders was also at the event.
