Planned Parenthood's 'Champion of the Century' Hillary Clinton Declares Abortion 'Right and Moral'

Former Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton accepted her "Champion of the Century" award at Planned Parenthood's 100th anniversary gala on Tuesday in New York, arguing that abortion is both "right and moral."

"Protecting access to the full range of reproductive health care: it is a health issue, of course, it is a core economic issue," Clinton said before several liberal Hollywood celebrities, such as Chelsea Handler, Meryl Streep, Scarlett Johansson, and others, The Blaze reported.

"Women in every corner of our country understand that intimately. And anyone who wants to lead should also understand that fundamentally, this is an issue of morality," Clinton added.

"I wish it were common ground," she continued, "but I know for sure it is higher ground. And I believe, as you do, that trusting and valuing women is the right and moral position to take."

Pro-life advocates, such as Albert Mohler, President of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, spoke out against Clinton's support for the women's services and abortion providing organization.

"Shamefully, she deserves it," Mohler tweeted on Wednesday about Clinton's "Champion of the Century" award.

"She is a champion ... of the past," added Marjorie Dannenfelser of the Susan B. Anthony List.

Planned Parenthood reportedly spent over $30 million campaigning for Clinton during the 2016 election cycle, and gave her its first-ever primary endorsement.

Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards separately told MSNBC that it is not difficult to be pro-life and a Democrat, following Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez declaring that all Democrats should support abortion rights.

"Oh, I don't think so," Richards said about whether it is difficult for one to be both a Democrat and pro-life, adding, "abortion is one of these issues that it is – I think shouldn't be politicized."
