NEW YORK -- Today, Planned Parenthood Empire State Votes PAC announced their endorsement of Letitia “Tish” James, Democratic nominee for New York Attorney General. With the federal government threatening women’s rights, Planned Parenthood Empire State Votes PAC cited Tish’s long record of protecting women’s health, rights, and freedoms and her commitment supporting women as Attorney General.
“We are at a historic crossroads in New York State with unceasing federal attacks on our access to reproductive health care and our reproductive rights. We need an attorney general who knows what is at stake and won’t back down or back up – and that means electing Tish James in November. Now the real fight begins to protect our health care and rights from the threat of a federal government that believes women shouldn’t have control over their own bodies. With Roe v. Wade hanging in the balance and attacks on such basic health care as contraception access, we need Tish James to stand up to Washington’s attacks on our equality, health, rights, and well-being,” said Robin Chappelle Golston, Chair of Planned Parenthood Empire State Votes PAC.
“Women’s rights are human rights. With a federal government threatening our most basic rights and a Supreme Court nominee with a history of hostile views towards women, it is more critical than ever that our next Attorney General be committed to supporting women. I am honored to earn the support of Planned Parenthood Empire State Votes PAC and as Attorney General, I will use every tool at my disposal to ensure women have the care and resources they need,” said Attorney General Candidate Letitia “Tish” James.
