Why We Support Antonio Delgado

He’s the advocate for women we need in Congress

I support women’s rights to make their own health care decisions.

— Antonio Delgado

  • Planned Parenthood Action Fund endorses Antonio Delgado because he’ll be “a strong advocate” who will defend “access to quality, affordable health care for all women.”

  • Delgado believes that “quality, affordable health care is an undeniable basic right.”

  • Delgado opposes the Republican health care agenda, including the expansion of bare- bones plans that cut coverage and the Trumpcare bill that slashed Medicaid and stripped protections for people with pre-existing conditions.

Why We Oppose John Faso

He supports the Trump-Pence agenda, not women in his district

I promise. I’m not going to take that away from you.

 — John Faso, pledging not to vote to take away health care from a mother of two, right before he voted to do just that.

  • Faso called Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination an “excellent choice” and has  called Roe v. Wade a “black mark” on the country.

  • After telling his constituents he’d support Planned Parenthood, Faso voted to “defund” Planned Parenthood, threatening access to health care for thousands of people in his district. The four Planned Parenthood health centers in Faso’s district serve nearly 8,000 of Faso’s constituents. And in four counties in his district (Columbia, Delaware, Rensselaer, Sullivan) there are no other safety-net family planning providers outside of Planned Parenthood.

  • Faso promised a mother of twowho suffers from multiple medical issues , that he would vote to protect health care access for people with pre-existing conditions. Then he immediately turned around and voted to cut it.

Join us in the fight ahead.

On November 9, our Planned Parenthood family, supporters, and patients woke up to a reality we fought so hard to prevent. 

Instead of welcoming reproductive health champion Hillary Clinton as our first female president, we saw Donald Trump take the White House.
