What would Hillary Clinton do if elected president to ensure that all women—particularly low-income women and women of color—have equal access to healthcare? Push Congress to boost Planned Parenthood funding, for one thing.
“I am not only against defunding Planned Parenthood, but I would like to see Planned Parenthood even get more funding,” she told Fusion’s Anna Holmes on Monday night, after the Iowa Brown & Black Forum. “Because, often times, it is both the first and the last resort for healthcare.”
Clinton would also push to repeal the Hyde Amendment, she said. Because when public funding for abortion services is banned by federal law, “the people who are going to suffer the most are going to be low-income women of color, that’s just the fact.”
