PP PA PAC announces first wave of endorsements for the 2021 November election

HARRISBURG, PA — Today, Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania PAC (PP PA PAC) endorsed 11 candidates for judicial, county and mayoral, and district attorney races across the state. Each candidate has committed to supporting sexual and reproductive health care and rights.

“Our rights are on the ballot this November, and it is vital we elect leaders that will fight for what’s right,“ said Signe Espinoza, Interim Executive Director of PP PA PAC. “PP PA PAC is committed to endorsing candidates that are not only committed to sexual and reproductive rights, but also intersectional issues like protecting the right to vote.”

With nearly 600 abortion restrictions introduced, 2021 is the worst year for state legislative attacks on abortion since Roe v. Wade. Texas has set a dangerous legal precedent by enacting SB 8, and it’s clear how important state courts are in ensuring freedom for all.
