CONGRESSMAN JOE MORELLE ENDORSED BY PLANNED PARENTHOOD ACTION FUND
December 6, 2019 | Press Release
Rochester, NY – Today, Joe Morelle announced that he has been endorsed by Planned Parenthood Action Fund as he seeks re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives in the 25th District. The Planned Parenthood Action Fund is an independent, nonpartisan, not-for-profit membership organization formed as the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood Federation of America.
“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,” said Alexis McGill Johnson, Acting President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Action Fund. “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 like Joe Morelle. Together we can and will expand our pro-reproductive rights majority in the House and flip the Senate.”
“The Trump administration has relentlessly attacked the fundamental healthcare rights women should be able to rely on,” said Morelle. “That’s why in Congress, I’ve stood up to protect access to essential reproductive health services and ensure every woman has the right to choose. I’m so grateful to Planned Parenthood Action Fund for their support and leadership and I will continue to stand alongside them to advance the rights of all women.”
Rep. Morelle has also been endorsed by the Congressional Progressive Caucus PAC.
