Planned Parenthood Action Fund Statement on Trump’s SCOTUS List
For Immediate Release: May 31, 2016
Washington, DC –– Planned Parenthood Action Fund released the following statement after Donald Trump released a list of judges he would consider appointing to the Supreme Court of the United States.
Quote from Dawn Laguens, Executive Vice President, Planned Parenthood Action Fund:
“Donald Trump promised to appoint judges who would overturn Roe v. Wade –– and he just released a list that proves it. You better believe that Donald Trump is the GOP’s best hope to ban abortion. He is considering many judges who have a record of failing to protect women’s access to reproductive health care –– including Judge William Pryor, who has called Roe v. Wade "the worst abomination in the history of constitutional law.” With reproductive health and rights under attack in statehouses across the country, and with Roe v. Wade at stake in the Supreme Court, we need a president who will protect women’s access to health care. Donald Trump is intent on destroying it.”
