WASHINGTON Planned Parenthood Action Fund released the following statement following news that Congresswoman Bustos and the DCCC cancelled a fundraiser for anti-abortion, anti-LGBTQ rights Democrat Rep. Dan Lipinski:
Statement from Kelley Robinson, Executive Director of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund
"Planned Parenthood Action Fund applauds Congresswoman Bustos and the DCCC for cancelling a planned fundraiser for anti-abortion Democrat Rep. Dan Lipinski. Being able to have control over your own body is a human right, and the Democratic platform is crystal clear about supporting people's ability to access full sexual and reproductive health care, including abortion. Now, when we're seeing a rash of abortion bans sweeping the country with the goal of challenging Roe v. Wade, the work of electing officials who support access to safe, legal abortion is more important than ever. Planned Parenthood Action Fund proudly endorsed reproductive health and rights champion Marie Newman earlier this month and looks forward to ensuring her victory next year."
