Planned Parenthood Action Fund Congratulates Richard Hanna for Primary Victory

“Richard Hanna’s victory shows that Republican voters will elect leaders who support women’s health.”

WASHINGTON, DC — Planned Parenthood Action Fund congratulates New York Representative Richard Hanna for his victory in last night’s primary, showing that it’s a winning combination to be a Republican and support women’s health. In 2012, Congressman Hanna was presented with Planned Parenthood’s Barry Goldwater Award, presented each year to an outstanding elected official who has acted as a leader within the Republican Party to protect women’s reproductive rights across the United States.

Statement from Dawn Laguens, Executive Vice President, Planned Parenthood Action Fund:

“Richard Hanna’s victory shows that Republican voters will elect leaders who support women’s health. Allowing women to make their own personal health care decisions is at the heart of independence and freedom. That’s what Richard Hanna has made clear throughout his time in Congress and throughout his primary campaign against his extreme and out-of-touch opponent, Claudia Tenney.

“He’s not alone. The majority of Americans — across party lines — agree that decisions about reproductive health care should be left between a woman and her doctor — without government intrusion”
