For Immediate Release: Oct. 21, 2022
Washington, DC – Planned Parenthood Advocates for DC, Maryland & NoVa (PPADMV) is proud to announce endorsements for the 2022 general election in the District of Columbia’s citywide races.
“At this moment when abortion rights are under attack throughout the country, it’s more important than ever to elect candidates who will protect and expand access to abortion. Abortion rights in DC are especially vulnerable following the overturning of Roe v. Wade due to DC’s lack of statehood and Congress’s ability to interfere with local issues,” said Betsy Harned, Executive Director of PPADMV. “PPADMV is proud to endorse a slate of candidates who have demonstrated a commitment to protecting and expanding abortion access and sexual and reproductive health care in DC.”
