Planned Parenthood Action Fund Endorses Congressman Hoyer for Reelection

BOWIE, MD - Today, Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-05) proudly announced that he has been endorsed for reelection by Planned Parenthood Action Fund. Planned Parenthood Action Fund fights to protect the rights of women to make their own health care decisions and has been a key player in mobilizing Americans following the Supreme Court's decision to strike down Roe v. Wade.

"I'm honored to be recognized as a leader in Congress who stands up for Maryland women's freedom to make their own reproductive health care choices," said Congressman Hoyer. "Planned Parenthood has advocated for the reproductive rights of women for decades, and I am proud to have received their endorsement for my reelection campaign. Following the Supreme Court's unconstitutional decision to overturn Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, striking down nearly five decades of precedent, we have seen countless attacks on the state and local level that aim to further restrict the rights of women.

"The endorsement of Planned Parenthood Action Fund reaffirms that the agenda I am proud to help advance, alongside Congressional Democrats and President Biden, is the bold action Marylanders need in order to protect women and strengthen care for all - particularly for women of color who already unjustly suffer from inadequate health care access and treatment. As Majority Leader, I was proud to bring the Women's Health Protection Act to the House Floor and will continue working to enshrine Roe v. Wade into federal law. I am determined to ensure that Congress does everything in our power to restore the freedom for all women to decide what to do with their own bodies."
