Planned Parenthood was founded 100 years ago, giving women the care they need to live their lives and chase their dreams – no limits, no ceilings.

A century later, an enormous ceiling is coming down.

This isn't just about electing the first woman president, it's about electing this woman president.

Each year, millions of women, men, and young people trust Planned Parenthood. And the Planned Parenthood Action Fund trusts Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonFrustration boils over with Senate's 'legislative graveyard' Poll: Nearly half of Clinton's former supporters back Biden Harris readies a Phase 2 as she seeks to rejuvenate campaign MORE.

As first lady, Hillary declared to the world that, "women's rights are human rights."

She worked with Republicans and Democrats to help create the Children's Health Insurance Program, which now covers 8 million kids.

As Secretary of State, she was a champion for women and girls around the globe.

And she will always stand up for Roe v. Wade and the right of every woman to access a full range of reproductive health care, including abortion, no matter her economic status.

Over the last year, Hillary has traveled across our country, listening to young activists working to end campus sexual assault.

To fathers who want their daughters to be paid equal to their sons.

To parents who need paid family leave and affordable child care.

She has made their fights her own.

Hillary has always been in Planned Parenthood's corner, because she knows women deserve someone in theirs.

Women like Dayna Farris Fisher, a mom in Dallas who was diagnosed with breast cancer two years ago.

Today, Dayna is cancer-free. She says she couldn't have done it without Vivian, the Planned Parenthood clinician who stuck with her all the way through treatment.

Make no mistake: women's health and rights are on the line and on the ballot in this election.

Not long ago, the Supreme Court ruled that the Texas laws that forced abortion providers to close their doors are dangerous and unconstitutional.

But the fight's not over. Donald Trump has pledged to appoint justices who will overturn Roe v. Wade and undo decades of progress.

His policies aren't just frightening – they're rooted in a disturbing worldview.

Donald Trump has called women "fat pigs" and "dogs."

He wants to punish women for having abortions.

And he says pregnancy is an "inconvenience" for a woman's employer.

Well, Donald Trump, come November, women are going to be more than an inconvenience.

We're going to be the reason you're not elected.

When my great-grandmother was growing up, women couldn't vote under Texas law.

Two generations later, her granddaughter, Ann Richards, was elected governor.

Tonight, we are closer than ever to putting a woman in the White House. And I can almost hear mom saying, "well, it sure took y'all long enough."

So what do you say?

Are you ready to make history?

Let's go win an election.
