Why We Support Scott Wallace
He’s a proven fighter for reproductive rights at home and abroad.
I will fight against dangerous, restrictive laws that impede on the ability of women and their doctors to make the best choices.—Scott Wallace

Wallace has worked throughout his career to advance reproductive rights: As a lawyer, he helped bring forth a successful challenge to a law that restricted access to safe and legal abortion. Meanwhile, his nonprofit — Wallace Global Fund — advances family planning and abortion rights worldwide.
Wallace fully supports protecting Planned Parenthood patients’ access to care and vehemently opposes efforts to “defund” Planned Parenthood.
The Wallaces have stood with Planned Parenthood for generations: Scott Wallace’s parents both served terms as president of Planned Parenthood of Bucks County.
Why We Oppose Brian Fitzpatrick
He’s an anti-abortion, out-of-touch incumbent.
I oppose legalized abortion, except when the life of the mother is in danger or the pregnancy is a result of rape or incest.—Brian Fitzpatrick’s multiple-choice answer when polled on his position

Fitzpatrick wants to ban abortion and has voted consistently to restrict access to safe, legal abortion — including voting for a 20-week abortion ban.
He voted to “defund” Planned Parenthood multiple times — and would do it again if given the chance.
He voted to let bosses discriminate against any employee who makes a health care decision they don’t like.
