Planned Parenthood Action Fund has issued endorsements for the upcoming 2020 electoral cycle, endorsing Congressman Jim Himes and 100 fellow champions of reproductive health care running in House and Senate races across the country.
“I am grateful for Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s endorsement, and I am a proud supporter of the critical work and services Planned Parenthood offers in Stamford and Bridgeport in my district, and for women and families around the country,” said Congressman Himes. “I will continue fighting to defend the right to choose and for access to affordable and quality health care.”
Planned Parenthood Action Fund endorsed several incumbent, stalwart champions in Congress who have fought tirelessly to defend their constituents’ reproductive rights and access to health care. In Congress, Jim Himes has pledged to continue working to protect funding for Planned Parenthood and protect a women’s right to choose.
Alexis McGill Johnson, Acting President and CEO, Planned Parenthood Action Fund issued the following statement:
“So much is at stake in this election. Emboldened by the Trump administration’s divisive rhetoric, Republican leadership in Congress has been hellbent on stripping away our rights and pushing access to health care out of reach for millions of Americans — leaving many with nowhere to turn for care. As we’ve seen in Virginia, in Kentucky, and across the country, Americans will not stand for having their reproductive health and rights attacked. We’re proud to stand with our incumbent champions and fierce challengers. Together we can and will expand our pro-reproductive rights majority in the House and flip the Senate.”
