Hillary Clinton is calling for increased government funding for Planned Parenthood.
“I’m obviously not only against defunding Planned Parenthood, but I would like to see Planned Parenthood even get more funding because oftentimes it is both the first and the last resort for healthcare,” the White House hopeful said in an interview with Fusion posted on Friday.
