SEATTLE – Tonight, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump took the stage for the third and final general election presidential debate. Donald Trump doubled down on his dangerous positions on reproductive health care, including nominating pro-life justices to the U.S. Supreme Court who will overturn Roe v. Wade and punishing women for accessing safe and legal abortion. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton made clear, once again that she is a champion for women and their families and will defend Planned Parenthood, defend Roe v. Wade and protect women’s rights to make their own health care decisions.
“Donald Trump doesn’t get it. He doesn’t understand a woman’s right to choose, pregnancy, or the issues women face. He’s spent years demeaning women and continues to push alarming policies that would take away the rights of women and their access to health care,” said Elaine Rose, CEO of Planned Parenthood Votes Northwest and Hawaii. “On the other hand, Hillary Clinton remains a steadfast champion for women –– fighting to expand access to reproductive health care. With so much at stake in 2016, we need to elect Hillary Clinton. No other presidential contender in our nation’s history has demonstrated such a strong commitment to women or such a clear record on behalf of women’s health and rights.”
Planned Parenthood health centers are the nation’s most trusted reproductive health care providers. In a single year, 2.5 million women, men and young people rely on Planned Parenthood health centers for birth control, lifesaving cancer screenings, STI testing and treatment, and well-woman exams. Planned Parenthood has been a trusted health care provider for 100 years.
