    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton addresses an audience during an event Sunday, Jan. 10, 2016, in Hooksett, N.H., during which Planned Parenthood endorsed Clinton in the presidential race. The endorsement by the group's political arm marks Planned Parenthood's first time wading into a presidential primary.

    Planned Parenthood endorsed Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire on Sunday, marking the group’s first backing of a primary candidate in its 100-year history, NBC News reported.

    Cecile Richards, president of the organization, said each Democratic candidate was interviewed, but Clinton had “overwhelming support.”

    Clinton mentions women’s health and Planned Parenthood in almost every speech and one of her biggest applause lines comes after defending the non-profit.

    Undercover videos showing a Planned Parenthood official discussing the sale of fetal parts put reproductive rights into the spotlight in the 2016 race.
