Statement from Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Action Fund:
“Tonight, Puerto Rico echoed their fellow Americans by supporting Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee and the next President of the United States. She supports legislation to help Puerto Rico and is committed to helping Puerto Ricans get on a path towards equal treatment under Medicaid and Medicare to ensure they have access to the affordable health care they need. Hillary has fought her entire career to help families access health care.
“Health care for an entire generation is at stake in this election. With Hillary in the White House, Americans will have an advocate who truly values health equity. We need that kind of leadership now more than ever.”
