BOSTON – The Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund of Massachusetts (PPAF) endorsed Jim Hawkins to represent the 2nd Bristol District of the Massachusetts House of Representatives. PPAF is the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts, and works to elect sexual and reproductive health allies like Hawkins to the Massachusetts Legislature.

“As long as attacks on health care access and reproductive rights remain a favorite pastime for D.C. politicians, it is critical that we elect allies like Jim Hawkins to help Massachusetts stay safe and healthy,” Dr. Jennifer Childs-Roshak, PPAF President, said. “Once on Beacon Hill, Jim will help protect and promote access to reproductive and sexual health care, champion comprehensive sex education, and defend the rights of patients across Massachusetts.”

Hawkins earned a 100 percent rating on PPAF’s candidate questionnaire, which asks candidates for their positions on sexual and reproductive health issues and PPAF’s legislative priorities, such as expanding access to comprehensive sex education in public schools, supporting state funding for family planning services, and protecting access to safe, legal abortion.

“As an educator and local activist, Hawkins understands the importance of dismantling the complex barriers to health care and the steps we must take to foster healthier communities. He is committed to building on the progress Massachusetts has made this past year and will push our state forward as a leader in health care, education, and reproductive rights, ” Childs-Roshak said.

Hawkins is running for the State Representative seat that represents Attleboro. The seat was recently vacated by PPAF champion Attleboro Mayor Paul Heroux. The election will be held on April 3.
