The Associated Press reported Tuesday that EMILY’s List will bestow upon Clinton the ‘We Are EMILY’ award at their 30th anniversary dinner on March 3 in Washington. EMILY’s List president Stephanie Schriock hailed the former first lady “as a fighter for women and families.” Additionally, Schriock said Clinton “dedicated her life to bettering the lives of women and families and has inspired the next generation with a focus on increasing economic empowerment across the country and around the world.”
The news comes after Clinton tweeted a declarative statement about the so-called vaccine debate.

Several thought her tweet was hypocritical:
@HillaryClinton Protect all our kids? Aren’t you pro-abortion? So you only want the kids who made it out of the womb to be protected.
