Billings, MT – Planned Parenthood Action Fund congratulates Sen. Jon Tester for winning re-election to the U.S. Senate. Sen. Tester is a strong supporter of women’s health and rights. Montanans know that he will fight for their health care, stand with Planned Parenthood patients, and continue to protect access to the life-saving care that Planned Parenthood health centers provide.
Statement from Dawn Laguens, Executive Vice President, Planned Parenthood Action Fund:
Congratulations to Sen. Jon Tester on his re-election. Throughout his tenure, Sen. Tester has stood up for women’s rights and access to the full range of reproductive health care — including safe, legal abortion. Montanans know that he will continue to stand with the more than 16,000 Planned Parenthood patients in the state and will oppose all efforts to undermine people’s access to health care from extreme politicians in Congress. We know that he will continue to work toward expanding access to reproductive health care and protecting health care for those living with pre-existing conditions. This is a victory for all Montanans.
Statement from Martha Stahl, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Montana:
Today, Montanans voted for the candidate that they can count on to continue fighting for them. Congratulations to Senator Jon Tester on being re-elected to serve in the U.S. Senate. This is a win for women’s health care and we could not be more excited to continue working with him to protect and expand access to the full range of reproductive health care. We are thrilled to send him back to Washington.
