Planned Parenthood Action Fund Endorses Perry Gershon for Congress

East Setauket, NY – Planned Parenthood Action Fund today announced its endorsement of Perry Gershon for U.S. Representative in New York’s First District. At a time when Roe v. Wade is under threat, it is important to have representatives in Congress who can be counted on to support efforts to preserve women’s control over their own bodies, their right to choose health care solutions, and continue funding for Planned Parenthood.

Dawn Laguens, Executive Vice President of Planned Parenthood Action Fund, said, “Perry’s principled support for women’s right to sexual and reproductive health care, along with his successful business career and involvement in his faith community, makes him the right choice to represent the people of eastern Long Island in Congress. With so much at stake, it’s more important than ever that we flip the House to a majority that will respect, support, and fund women’s health care solutions. The road to making this vision a reality runs through NY-01.”

Gershon said, “I am proud to have earned the endorsement of Planned Parenthood Action Fund. Health care is the number one issue on the ballot this November, and in NY-01, the outcome of this race determines whether those with pre-existing conditions will continue to have health care, whether Planned Parenthood will continue to have the funding needed to provide essential services such as affordable access to cancer screenings, and whether women will have the right to choose what to do with their own bodies. I am fully committed to the mission of Planned Parenthood, and look forward to being a committed advocate and champion in Congress if elected this November.”

Government cannot fix our problems, but I believe we can work together to provide opportunity and create an economy that works for all of us.
