ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Democratic presidential presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton spoke to the Planned Parenthood National Conference in Washington, D.C. on Friday after getting the endorsement of U.S. President Barack Obama in the race for the White House. She told the women's healthcare organization she was moved by their commitment to keep their doors open in the face of hardship. "When a man who never should have had a gun killed three people at Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs, leaders in this room voted unanimously to keep health centers across America open the next day," Clinton said. "Today, I want to say start by saying something you don't hear often enough. Thank you." Robert Lewis Dear, 57, is accused of shooting three people to death and wounding nine others at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs in November 2015.
