NARAL Pro-Choice America is celebrating Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s birthday on Wednesday by promoting a pack of playing cards featuring Mrs. Clinton and other prominent women from U.S. history.

“Celebrate @HillaryClinton’s birthday with a deck of Gender Cards—she’s the Ace of Hearts! https://bit.ly/2eGG0Pp #ImWithHer,” the abortion-rights interest group tweeted shortly after 1:30 p.m. Eastern time on Oct. 26, Mrs. Clinton’s 69th birthday.

An hour and a half later, the group tweeted a virtual birthday card for the former secretary of state: “Happy birthday to a true champion for #reprofreedom—& our next president—@HillaryClinton! #ITrustHillary”

The organization’s political action committee formally endorsed Mrs. Clinton for the presidency in January.

The pack of playing cards, introduced back in May featuring artwork by Brooklyn illustrator Andrea Sparacio, also features first lady Michelle Obama, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and the current and former female justices of the Supreme Court, as well a prominent women from American history like Red Cross founder Clara Barton and Underground Railroad conductor Harriet Tubman.

Sarah Weddington, the legal counsel for Norma McCorvey, the “Roe” in Roe v. Wade, is also represented in the deck as the five of clubs.

Ms. Weddington’s most famous client, however, has since become a pro-life activist and Catholic convert, expressing regret over her role in the landmark abortion-rights case.

“I think it’s safe to say that the entire abortion industry is based on a lie…. I am dedicated to spending the rest of my life undoing the law that bears my name,” Ms. McCorvey said in a 2013 video made for the 40th anniversary of the Roe decision, LifeNews.com reported at the time.
