Hillary Clinton is convinced that Planned Parenthood holds the “higher ground” when it comes to the morality of abortion, she told a Planned Parenthood gala Tuesday.
On Tuesday, Clinton headlined the star-studded event in New York celebrating the abortion provider’s 100th anniversary, and was honored with the group’s “Champion of the Century” award.
HollywoodReporter.com quotes Clinton’s claim that support of abortion is the “higher ground” of the issue of “morality”:
"Protecting access to the full range of reproductive health care. It is a health issue, of course, it is a core economic issue. 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," urged Clinton upon accepting the Champion of the Century Award after a standing ovation from attendees including Meryl Streep, Julianne Moore, Scarlett Johansson, Chelsea Handler and Harvey Weinstein.
"I wish it were common ground, 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."
