Planned Parenthood Votes Statement on Kelly Ayotte Pulling Support For Trump
Contact: Planned Parenthood Action Fund Media Office, 212-261-4433
Quote from Dawn Laguens, head of Planned Parenthood Votes:
“Kelly Ayotte may be in full panic mode, but trading a candidate who boasts about attacks on women for someone who legislates them is cowardice, not courage. Ayotte supported Trump as he made numerous offensive statements, and as he advocated legislation that would strip away women’s health and rights. Now she’s saying she’ll support Mike Pence, who has made a career out of attacking women’s health and rights. Kelly Ayotte can’t fool us, and she can’t fool voters: They both have spent their careers blocking access to women’s health care. This move is too little, too late.”
