Center for Reproductive Rights Statement on Cecile Richards

Nancy Northup, President and CEO of the Center for Reproductive Rights, released the following statement on fellow reproductive rights leader Cecile Richards, after Richards announced she will be stepping down from Planned Parenthood.

Said Nancy Northup, President and CEO of the Center for Reproductive Rights:

“Cecile Richards has left an indelible mark on the fight for reproductive health and rights, and millions of people are better for it. Cecile has made it her life’s work to organize and fight for all, and the Center for Reproductive Rights has been proud to partner with her during her 12 years of service. Cecile built Planned Parenthood into an even stronger, more relevant provider of reproductive health care and a political force to be reckoned with.  We are excited to see what her next chapter brings and look forward to continuing alongside her the movement for equal and unobstructed access to sexual and reproductive health care for all.”
