elle-01-cecile-ClKQmM-blogPlanned Parenthood President Cecile Richards disclosed in Elle in October that she had had an abortion:

I had an abortion. It was the right decision for me and my husband, and it wasnít a difficult decision. Before becoming president of Planned Parenthood eight years ago, I hadnít really talked about it beyond family and close friends. But Iím here to say, when politicians argue and shout about abortion, theyíre talking about meóand millions of other women around the country.

At the time I thought the “it wasn’t a difficult decision” line was terribly insensitive to Richards’ three surviving children. They certainly know it could have been any one of them who was snuffed, in which case so what, according to their mother?
