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

For Immediate Release: 08.09.16

Washington, DC –– Today, Donald Trump suggested that “the Second Amendment people” might be able to do something if if Hillary Clinton is elected and is able to “pick her judges” — a reckless and dangerous statement from a man running for president.

 

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

 

“Words matter, and calls for violence are not a joke. Planned Parenthood’s brave medical professionals and staff members know all too well how violent rhetoric can lead to real tragedy. This type of dangerous language is always unacceptable, but it is especially outrageous from a man who wants to be president of this country.”
