The Planned Parenthood Action Fund announced its endorsement of Janice Hahn in the special election in California’s 36thCongressional District race. The Planned Parenthood Action Fund is the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood Federation of America.

“The Planned Parenthood Action Fund is proud to support Janice Hahn for Congress,” said Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund. “She is a champion for women’s health and women’s rights who will be a passionate advocate in Congress.”

In three terms on the Los Angeles City Council, Hahn has demonstrated strong support for women‘s health. Earlier this year, she sponsored a resolution supporting Planned Parenthood as Congress debated whether to bar Planned Parenthood from participating in federal health programs. Hahn understands the importance of the health care services Planned Parenthood provides to women in Los Angeles, and she will be a champion for these services in Congress.

Craig Huey, Hahn’s main opponent, is clearly anti-women’s health and clearly out of the mainstream. He opposes Planned Parenthood providing lifesaving preventive health care to women through federal health programs.

Recent polling by Quinnipiac University and NBC/Wall Street Journal shows majority support for federal funding for Planned Parenthood. 

There is a clear contrast between Janice Hahn and her radical opponent, Craig Huey. If elected, Hahn will be a strong advocate in Congress for women’s rights and women’s health, including improving access to quality health care for women, fighting to end discrimination and violence against women, supporting and protecting a woman's right to choose, strengthening comprehensive sex education to keep our young people healthy and safe, and investing in prevention programs, including family planning services and breast cancer screenings. 

The Planned Parenthood Action Fund will stand strongly behind Hahn in this election.

The special election will be held July 12, 2011.
