STATEMENT: NARAL Pro-Choice America PAC Endorses Tom Wolf for Governor of Pennsylvania
Today, NARAL Pro-Choice America PAC endorsed Tom Wolf to be the next governor of Pennsylvania.
Said NARAL Pro-Choice America Board Vice Chair Karen Ritter:
"NARAL Pro-Choice America is proud to support Tom Wolf's candidacy, and we are committed to making sure that he is the next governor of Pennsylvania. With a general assembly controlled by anti-choice politicians, we need a governor who will stand for and with women. Tom Wolf is the only candidate in this race that is dedicated to protecting and expanding women's rights in the Commonwealth. Now through Election Day, we will be just as dedicated to seeing that his campaign ends in victory."
Said NARAL Pro-Choice America Director of Public Affairs Samantha Gordon:
"Considering the widespread attacks on women's reproductive rights in statehouses across the country, Pennsylvania has an opportunity to elect a governor who respects women and families—Tom Wolf. His anti-choice opponent, Governor Tom Corbett, is infamous for his lack of respect for women and even made crude remarks in support of forced ultrasounds, which made national news. Pennsylvania deserves better. We will do all we can to make sure our activists in the Commonwealth support Tom Wolf for governor."
Tom Wolf happily accepted NARAL Pro-Choice America's PAC endorsement and had this to say:
"I am thankful to NARAL Pro-Choice America PAC for their support. Women should have the right to make their own health care decisions. As governor I will oppose legislation that restricts these rights, and I will fight to make sure women and their families have access to safe, affordable, and high-quality health care."
