Cecile Richards on the Rachel Maddow Show Discusses Attacks on Women's Health

As Cecile pointed out, one of the most extraordinary things is that of all the people introducing and moving forward with these bills, “None of them will ever be pregnant. And the thought that these men are now going to make decisions for women about their pregnancies is incredible.”
