Planned Parenthood Action Fund Statement on Second Democratic Debate
Contact: Planned Parenthood Action Fund Media Office, 212-261-4433
Statement from Dawn Laguens, Vice President of Planned Parenthood Action Fund:
“Tonight’s debate showcased the Democratic presidential candidates’ commitment to making sure that Americans stay safe, all people have access to quality, affordable health care, and our children are able to attain a quality education and more promising future.
“Make no mistake: access to the full range of reproductive care is on ballot in 2016. Each candidate tonight acknowledged the importance of the Affordable Care Act and committed to protecting and expanding access to quality health care if elected to office. Voters want to know that their next president will protect access to reproductive health care, including safe, legal abortion and will ensure they can continue to seek care at Planned Parenthood.”
