Planned Parenthood Issues Strong Endorsement for Congressman Raja
Following Unprecedented Attacks on Reproductive Health, Planned Parenthood Issues Strong Endorsement for Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi
Pointing to his robust track record of fighting for women throughout Illinois, Planned Parenthood crowned Congressman Raja the “best candidate” to fight for reproductive freedom in Illinois’ 8th Congressional District.
“Now, more than ever, we need elected officials to stand up against attacks on people’s constitutional right to make their own health care decisions,” said Alexis McGill Johnson, President of Planned Parenthood Action Fund. “In the 8th Congressional District of Illinois, Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi is the best candidate to lead this effort, and we strongly endorse his re-election. Congressman Krishnamoorthi has consistently co-sponsored and supported legislation to codify Roe vs. Wade into law, and Planned Parenthood Action Fund looks forward to strengthening our allyship to continue the fight for reproductive freedom.”
“The fight to protect one of our society’s most fundamental rights – the right to universal reproductive health care services for women- is one that I have championed during my tenure in Congress,” said Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi. “I am immensely proud of my 100% Planned Parenthood Action Fund voting record, and I am deeply honored to receive the endorsement of Planned Parenthood Action Fund. If given the opportunity to continue to serve Illinois’ 8th Congressional District as your Congressman, I will continue to fight like hell against ongoing efforts to strip Americans of their fundamental right to reproductive freedom.”
