You know, except the baby girls her organization sucked from the womb and tossed in the dumpster. Note: Time had Sandra Fluke write Cecile Richards profile for its “100 most influential people in the world” story.
Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards, 54, is a role model for all of us as she leads women in pursuit of unfettered access to health care and reproductive freedom. She is also my advocate and that of every woman in America, as I learned firsthand when I was publicly disparaged for speaking out on an issue she has been working on every day for years.
Our most basic health care needs — needs that impact our families and our larger economy — are still being questioned. As we look to inspire the next generation of women to join this fight, we’re fortunate to have Cecile as our mentor. There is no better advocate.
Fluke is a law student and women’s-health advocate.
