The Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund of Massachusetts (PPAF) celebrates the election of Susan Moran to the Massachusetts State Senate in the Plymouth and Barnstable District. Moran flipped this crucial Senate seat long-held by an anti-abortion opponent, making her commitment to sexual and reproductive health and rights a central piece of her campaign.
“The voters of the Plymouth and Barnstable District sent a clear message tonight – they want a leader who shares their values and prioritizes their health and wellbeing,” said Dr. Jennifer Childs-Roshak, PPAF President. “Now more than ever, Massachusetts needs elected leaders who will unapologetically advocate for proactive policies like the ROE Act and work tirelessly to dismantle barriers to care, including safe, legal abortion. Su is one of many bold reproductive rights champions the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund will support during the 2020 elections.”
This race marks the first of many PPAF will deeply invest in during the 2020 election. Despite the physical restrictions imposed by COVID-19, PPAF’s field team mobilized grassroots supporters to call voters from their homes and develop safe voting plans. Leading up to Election Day, PPAF volunteers educated voters about Moran’s support for crucial policies like the ROE Act that improve abortion access across the state of Massachusetts.
