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

For Immediate Release: 05.03.16

Washington, DC – Planned Parenthood Action Fund released the following statement regarding primary results from Indiana:

Statement from Dawn Laguens, Executive Vice President of Planned Parenthood Action Fund:

“Let’s get real about what a Donald Trump presidency means for this country. A Donald Trump presidency would see millions of people blocked from accessing birth control and lifesaving cancer screenings at Planned Parenthood health centers. A Donald Trump presidency would see women and doctors punished for accessing or providing safe, legal abortion. A Donald Trump presidency will divide this country. He spouts hateful lies about immigrants, Muslims, and anyone who protests his outlandish, inflammatory, and offensive policies. Donald Trump’s rhetoric and his policies are straight up dangerous. With so many states across the country moving to block access to Planned Parenthood and ban abortion, we need a president who will fight for women. Donald Trump is not that person.”
