Yesterday, Planned Parenthood PA PAC announced they’re supporting Josh Shapiro.
“Josh is the only candidate for Attorney General we trust to defend women’s access to health care,” said Sari Stevens, Executive Director of the Planned Parenthood PA PAC. “Unlike his opponents, Josh knows that the rights of women in Pennsylvania are on the line in this election. We need an Attorney General who will defend reproductive health care from ultra-conservatives in both parties intent on taking it away.”
“At a time when legislators and Attorneys General across the country are attacking access to basic reproductive health services, it is vital we have a true advocate for women and men across our Commonwealth,” she continued. “The job of the Attorney General is to protect Pennsylvanians, and Josh understands that a crucial part of that is to protect our right to access critical health services such as breast exams, STI testing and treatment and contraception.”
“I am proud to stand with 350,000 Pennsylvanians who are active supporters of Planned Parenthood to protect and defend the rights of women to access legal health services in our Commonwealth no matter where you live or how much money you have,” Shapiro responded. “We can’t forget that women’s rights are under attack here in Pennsylvania and across our country. As your Attorney General I will stand strong to make sure no one undermines access to basic health services in Pennsylvania.”
The Montgomery County Commissioner is running against Allegheny County DA Stephen Zappala and Northampton DA John Morganelli in the Democratic primary.
