Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton speaks on January 7, 2016 in San Gabriel, CaliforniaPlanned Parenthood, the influential US women’s health care provider savaged by anti-abortion Republicans who want to shut it down, said Thursday it was backing Hillary Clinton for president. The move will be a political and funding boon for the former secretary of state, who is a strong supporter of Planned Parenthood, which said its advocacy organizations would spend at least $20 million in the 2016 election cycle to help elect the Democratic frontrunner. “We’re proud to endorse Hillary Clinton for president of the United States,” Planned Parenthood Action Fund president Cecile Richards said in a statement.
