(CNSNews.com) – Former first lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton can add another pro-abortion honor to her resume. Clinton, who was the 2009 recipient of Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Margaret Sanger Award, will be the keynote speaker at Emily’s List’s 30th anniversary gala on Tuesday in Washington, D.C.

According to an article in Bloomberg Politics on Monday, the choice of Clinton for the keynote slot is not arbitrary.

“Emily’s List hasn't yet endorsed Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential race, but that's just a formality,” the Bloomberg Politics report stated. “The [Political Action Committee), founded in 1985, has helped Democratic women reach every level of elected office short of the White House.

“Now the group is focusing its resources on the one goal that has eluded it,” the report stated.

“She has a message and we have a mission that are both clearly attuned to what this country seems to be needing right now: more women’s voices speaking for women and families,” Jess McIntosh, Emily’s List’s communication director, is quoted as saying in the Bloomberg report.

Emily’s List, which states on its website, “We ignite change by getting pro-choice

Democratic women elected to office,” has also given speaking slots to pro-abortion Democrats throughout the three-day conference.

Those speakers include: D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser; Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.); Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-Mich.); Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.); Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.); Sen. Claire McCaskill (R-Mo.); Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.); Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.); Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.); Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.); Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) and Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.).
