Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards sat down with Jon Stewart of The Daily Show on Wednesday.

In a two-part interview, the daughter of former Texas Governor Ann Richards talked about contraception, sex education, and how Texas regulations "really demean women."  

In part one, Richards says, "We do more to prevent unintended pregnancy and the need for abortion than any organization in this country:"

In part two, Richards talks about "my home state of Texas, where, now, a lot of regulations have been put in place, things to really deman women, shame women, and at the same point, the governor is cutting off all family planning for women in the state of Texas ... you really can't have it both ways:"
