Planned Parenthood Action Fund Statement on New York Primary Results

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

For Immediate Release: 04.19.16

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

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

“Donald Trump’s policies are polarizing, divisive, and overwhelmingly rejected by the American public. His blatant disregard for the very real issues that women, immigrants, and communities of color face in this country is abhorrent. We can’t let this dangerous agenda in the White House.

“The choice this election could not be more clear. Our nation can work together to build on our successes, or we can go back to a time when women and providers were punished and jailed simply for accessing or providing basic health care, a policy that Donald Trump supports. Hillary Clinton has spent her entire career fighting to protect and expand reproductive health and rights. That’s what the American people want.”
