Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon and Planned Parenthood Action Fund congratulate Suzanne Bonamici on winning the special election in OR-1 and being elected the newest member of Congress.
“We congratulate Suzanne Bonamici and look forward to working with her,” said Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund. “She will be a strong advocate and champion for women’s health in Congress.”
Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon and Planned Parenthood Action Fund endorsed Suzanne Bonamici for Congress and partnered with EMILY’s List on an aggressive multimedia independent expenditure campaign. Together, the coordinated multimedia effort reached key voters through a mix of vehicles, including a TV ad, online ads, a new website, and direct mail designed to educate them about the extreme anti-women’s health record of Rob Cornilles.
Planned Parenthood Action Fund believes Suzanne Bonamici will be a strong advocate in Congress to improve access to quality health care for women, support and protect a woman's right to choose, oppose efforts to bar Planned Parenthood from receiving federal funds to provide preventive health care, and invest in prevention programs, including family planning services and lifesaving cancer screenings.
