Hillary Clinton tweeted thanks to Planned Parenthood on Thursday, applauding the abortion provider for promising to fight against state bans on women’s “constitutional rights.”

“Grateful to Planned Parenthood for continuing to provide essential services in Alabama and elsewhere while helping to fight the state legislative bans on women’s human and constitutional rights,” the former secretary of state wrote.

Mrs. Clinton was referring to slew of anti-abortion measures in multiple states, including Alabama where Republican Gov. Kay Ivey signed a bill Wednesday outlawing virtually all abortions in the state, including in cases of rape and incest.

A newly signed bill in Georgia also bans abortions after about six weeks or when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, and Missouri is expected to pass a bill banning abortions after eight weeks.

Planned Parenthood has vowed to do “whatever it takes” to stop the bans.

“None of us should accept a future in which our daughters and granddaughters have fewer rights than we do,” Mrs. Clinton tweeted Wednesday. “Choose a way to help, ask a friend to join you, and let’s get to work.”

“The abortion bans in Alabama, Georgia, Ohio, Kentucky, and Mississippi are appalling attacks on women’s lives and fundamental freedoms. Women’s rights are human rights. We will not go back,” she wrote.
