Hillary Clinton cements abortion rights as integral to her campaign

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton attempted to win the votes of young women by pledging unwavering support to Planned Parenthood, according to The Hill.

She made this vow in a 30-minute speech at a Planned Parenthood event in Washington, D.C. Ms. Clinton has struggled to capture the young female voting bloc, who have largely supported her rival Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in the primaries, according to the report.

"For too long, issues like these have been dismissed by many as 'women's issues' — as though that somehow makes them less worthy, secondary," Ms. Clinton said, according to the report. "Well, yes, these are women's issues. They're also family issues. They're economic issues. They're justice issues. They're fundamental to our country and our future."

When considering a matchup between Ms. Clinton and Republican contender Donald Trump this fall — who has taken a nearly opposite stance on abortion — the issue will likely be front and center in the general election.
