Cecile Richards has never shied away from controversy. In seventh grade, she got sent to the principal’s office for protesting the Vietnam War. As President of Planned Parenthood, she defended the organization in a heated 2015 congressional hearing. Planned Parenthood is a healthcare provider that offers a long list of services, including cancer screenings and STI treatment. It also provides abortions and birth control services, which has made it one of the most controversial institutions in the country. In her memoir ‘Make Trouble,’ Richards discusses leading the organization for the past 12 years, what she learned from being raised by two activist parents, and the value of being ‘trouble maker.’
