Planned Parenthood has never endorsed a primary candidate, ever. But on Thursday, the Planned Parenthood Action Fund announced that it will endorse none other than Hillary Rodham Clinton.
The group’s Twitter account sent out a graphic listing “3 Damn Good Reasons” why they’re supporting the Democratic heir apparent.

Clinton is positively tickled to have the support of the nation’s leading abortion provider:
“As a lifelong Planned Parenthood supporter, I’m honored to have the endorsement of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund,” Clinton said in a statement obtained by the Washington Post. “There has never been a more important election when it comes to women’s health and reproductive rights — and Planned Parenthood’s patients, providers, and advocates across the country are a crucial line of defense against the dangerous agenda being advanced by every Republican candidate for president.”
Birds of a scandal-plagued feather flock together.
