“There would be absolutely no benefit to having Donald Trump as president of the United States for women,” she said on “MSNBC Live with Thomas Roberts."

“He on the one hand praises the work we do and then says he wants to cut every single person off healthcare that we serve,” Richards continued. "You just can’t have it both ways.

“I do think the danger of a Donald Trump presidency is that he would actually end access to healthcare for millions of people all across the country.”

Richards said it's "incredible" that all the Republican presidential candidates want to "end access for women [to] not only Planned Parenthood but to birth control all across the country and legal abortion.” 

“We have Republican patients who come to Planned Parenthood every single day. They are in total disbelief that this is where the Republican Party is going.”

Richards said reducing federal funding for Planned Parenthood would disproportionately impact women in poverty.

“[It would be] particularly for low-income women,” she said. "That’s what’s really troubling about this. For many folks who come to Planned Parenthood, we are on their only doctor, their only healthcare provider.”

Trump defended Planned Parenthood’s services other than abortion during Thursday night’s GOP presidential debate in Houston.

The businessman maintains he would still defund the healthcare organization over “the abortion factor,” however.

Conservatives sought federal funding cuts for Planned Parenthood last year following outrage over a series of undercover videos having to do with its fetal tissue practices.
