Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund, the advocacy and political arm of the Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts, recently announced their endorsement of Mike Connolly for the 26th Middlesex District seat of the Massachusetts House of Representatives. Election Day is Tuesday, November 8.
“Mike Connolly understands that access to sexual and reproductive health care and comprehensive sexuality education are essential for building healthy communities. We need allies like Mike Connolly in the State House to push the state forward with policies that put patients first, strengthen reproductive rights, and eliminate barriers to vital health care for women, men, and young people," said Jennifer Childs-Roshak, MD, MBA, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund of Massachusetts.
"These are the issues the people of Massachusetts care about and support, and Mike will fight for them every day. Mike is committed to making sure everyone — no matter who they are or where they live — has the education, support and care they need to stay healthy and Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund is proud to endorse him," Childs-Roshak added.
The Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund of Massachusetts (PPAF) advocates for policies that protect and expand access to sexual and reproductive health care and comprehensive sexuality education. PPAF opposes dangerous legislation that restricts access to sexual and reproductive health care, including safe, legal abortion.
