“Clearly it is time for change in Michigan’s 1st Congressional District.  Rep. Stupak needlessly jeopardized the historic health care reform law through his single-minded attempt to take away private insurance coverage for abortion that millions of women have today.  Fortunately, Planned Parenthood and its supporters and congressional allies worked tirelessly to keep the Stupak abortion coverage ban out of the final health care reform bill.

“Voters in Michigan deserve a representative who will put their interests and needs ahead of narrow ideological aims. That’s why the Planned Parenthood Action Fund has endorsed Connie Saltonstall for U.S. Representative and will be working hard to elect her to Congress.

“Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s efforts to stop Stupak’s dangerous anti-choice legislation energized pro-choice women in Michigan and across the country. We will be tapping the same energy during the upcoming 2010 elections.”
