HARTFORD — U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) announced the endorsement of Planned Parenthood Action Fund. Planned Parenthood Action Fund supports candidates who advocate for reproductive rights and protect a woman’s right to choose.
“Women’s reproductive health care is under attack. Women in Connecticut don’t want politicians or extreme judges telling them what to do with their bodies. President Trump nominated Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court to roll back the clock on reproductive rights. I’m proud to have Planned Parenthood Action Fund by my side as I fight back,” said Murphy.
“We are proud to support Chris Murphy for re-election to the U.S. Senate. Senator Murphy is a progressive champion, never shying away from a fight against the Trump administration when it comes to standing up to our health care. He is a tireless advocate for women’s reproductive rights and understands that Connecticut residents rely on Planned Parenthood health centers for essential care. Connecticut has a strong champion in Senator Murphy, and come November, we’re excited for women to send him back to the Senate,” said Dawn Laguens, executive vice president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund.
