"We’ve been told that the interests of the South and the Southwest are not the same interests as the North and the Northeast. They pit one group against the other.

Twenty four years later her daughter, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, took the stage at the 2012 DNC to voice her support to reelect President Obama.
