Washington, DC -- Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Action Fund, issued the following statement after reports that Kelly Ayotte handed out condoms to students over the weekend and attempted to liken her policies with those supported by Planned Parenthood Action Fund.

“A free condom is not a substitute for the care that 13,000 New Hampshire patients receive at Planned Parenthood health centers – which Kelly Ayotte voted to defund six times.”

“Kelly Ayotte is making a desperate attempt to cover up her long record of attacking reproductive health care – which includes her six votes to defund Planned Parenthood, a half-baked proposal that would make birth control more expensive for millions of women, and attempts to repeal the benefit that gave over 55 million women access to no-copay birth control.

“Planned Parenthood health centers have been providing quality preventive care for 100 years, and we support policies that work. If Kelly Ayotte actually wanted to deliver for the women of New Hampshire, she’d support real solutions that truly help women access quality, affordable care, like Governor Maggie Hassan has, rather than spending her first – and probably last – term in Congress attacking it.”
