FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE  

PLANNED PARENTHOOD PENNSYLVANIA PAC ENDORSES JOE HOEFFEL FOR GOVERNOR

Harrisburg, PA – The Board of the Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania PAC announced today that it is unanimously

endorsing Democratic nominee Joe Hoeffel in the upcoming gubernatorial election.

 

The organization says Hoeffel has been a long-time supporter of reproductive rights and Planned Parenthood

throughout his political career. Both in the State Legislature and while serving as a U.S. Congressman, Hoeffel

was a leader on women’s health care.   

 

“On behalf of our 140,000 patients and 180,000 pro-choice supporters in the Commonwealth, we are thrilled

to support Joe Hoeffel for Governor. More than any other candidate in this race, Joe Hoeffel understands that

people need information and options so that they can make responsible life decisions,” says Sari Stevens, Executive

Director for the Planned Parenthood PA PAC.

 

“But we also need responsible government to ensure women and men have access to safe, affordable, preventative care,”

 continued Stevens, “Joe understands the role of government in private medical decisions and we look forward to working

 with him as Governor of Pennsylvania.”

 

Joe Hoeffel says that as Governor, he will fight to protect women and men’s choices in reproductive health care. “I have

been a proud supporter of Planned Parenthood for many years throughout my political career and am excited to receive

this endorsement. As Governor, I will work hard to ensure women and men are able to have the freedom and opportunity

to make the best decisions for themselves and their families.”

 

The announcement was made at 10:15am at the Philadelphia Planned Parenthood health center at 1144 Locust Street

while Hoeffel and Planned Parenthood supporters looked on.

 

The Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania PAC, which is the only pro-choice, grassroots, PAC in Pennsylvania, will work

with the Hoeffel campaign to get pro-choice, pro-prevention voters to the polls on May 18th.
