Contact: Planned Parenthood Action Fund Media Office, 212-261-4433

For Immediate Release: 05.20.16

Washington, DC –– Planned Parenthood Action Fund released the following statement regarding Gov. Mary Fallin’s veto of legislation that would have punished doctors for providing abortion –– a policy platform that Donald Trump supports.

Quote from Erica Sackin, Director of Political Communications, Planned Parenthood Action Fund:

“Donald Trump stated clearly that he believes abortion should be criminalized, and that doctors and women should be punished. The Oklahoma legislature put Donald Trump’s words into action, and even extreme anti-abortion Governor Mary Fallin couldn’t stomach it. What is the rest of the Republican party going to do when they have to answer for Donald Trump’s off-the-rails agenda for women in this country?”
