I grew up as a Democrat in Texas, which means that I've been looking up to Cecile Richards since I learned to walk.
From the work she did to get her mother, Ann Richards, elected as governor of Texas, to the incredible work she's done over the past 12 years as president of Planned Parenthood, she's long been one of the most important leaders in our country. Her leadership, perseverance, and grit have made care more accessible for millions of Americans, and we all owe her a debt of gratitude.
With the news that Cecile is stepping down at Planned Parenthood to let a new generation of leaders take over, I wanted to take a moment to thank her. Will you join me?
Add your name to join Democrats everywhere in thanking Cecile Richards for everything she's done to defend our reproductive rights.
Democrats believe that reproductive freedom is not only about access to comprehensive health care services, including abortion. It's also about economic justice and having the ability to effectively plan for our future.
No one has done more over the past decade to fight for reproductive rights than Cecile.
As she prepares to transition to what's next, please join me and thousands of other Democrats in thanking Cecile Richards for everything she's done for women across the country:
