Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is the only choice for voters who care about women's health, says Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund.

"Hillary Clinton is the fiercest champion for women and reproductive rights to ever be within reach of the presidency. For her, these are not fringe issues – for women, they touch every aspect of our lives," Richards writes in Wednesday's Guardian newspaper.

"We need Hillary Clinton's leadership because politicians like Donald Trump and Mike Pence do not trust women to make their own healthcare decisions. They have promised over and over to drag reproductive rights back decades by punishing women who get abortions and appointing justices to overturn Roe v Wade.

"They want to block access to birth control and cancer screenings at Planned Parenthood, and undo the progress toward equality for women’s health under the Affordable Care Act by repealing it."

The election is a choice between "someone who will divide and insult us, and set us back decades in ensuring equality and economic security for ourselves and our families, or someone who has set a new precedent for bold leadership on behalf of women’s health and rights," Richards says.

"There is no contest. There is only one choice. We need Hillary Clinton in the White House."

The Planned Parenthood Action Fund describes itself as a "nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization formed as the advocacy and nonpartisan political arm of Planned Parenthood which engages in educational, advocacy and electoral activity."
