Washington, DC --- Tonight, Jeb Bush announced that he was suspending his 2016 presidential campaign. Planned Parenthood Action Fund released the following statement:

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

"The more the American people found out about Jeb Bush's record, the less they supported him. In Florida Jeb slashed funding for family planning, sex education and even teen self-esteem programs; signed six anti- abortion laws, and passed a law in 2001 that forced single mothers --- including minors and rape victims --- to advertise their sexual history in the newspaper. Thanks to him, Florida is tied for last in the nation when it comes to women’s health --- with too many women struggling to access health care providers or essential services. At the end of the day, American voters have no appetite for attacks against women's health and rights."
