On Tuesday’s Democratic Convention, President of the women’s health organization Planned Parenthood Cecile Richards addressed the crowd of delegates, speaking about the great partnership between the organization, women’s health, and the Democratic party.

But Richards didn’t just talk about women’s health, she also took a pause to speak directly to Republican nominee Donald Trump as she tore him apart for his disparaging remarks about women in the past.

Richards offered some killer lines to Trump concerning woman’s role in politics and how we can expect that role to evolve in the coming months and years.

“Donald Trump has called women ‘fat pigs’ and ‘dogs’. He wants to punish women for having abortions. And he says pregnancy is ‘an inconvenience’ for a woman’s employer. Well, Mr. Trump, come this November, women are going to be a lot more than an inconvenience. Women are going to be the reason you’re not elected to be president.”
