Cecile Richards is the current president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America.

She previously founded and served as president of America Votes, a coalition of national Democratic organizations. Before that, she was deputy chief of staff to Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic majority leader in the U.S. House of Representatives. She has also worked at the Turner Foundation.

In 1996, she founded the Texas Freedom Network, a Texas organization formed to counter the Christian Right. Richards was strongly critical of the Stupak-Pitts Amendment, which places limits on taxpayer-funded abortions in the context of the November 2009 Affordable Health Care for America Act.
