(Bridgewater, NJ) With the Trump Administration set to release its pick for Anthony Kennedy’s replacement on the Supreme Court, Congress will be our last line of defense in protecting women’s rights.
“With Roe at risk, it becomes more critical than ever that our elected representatives protect choice, privacy, and a woman’s autonomy over her own body,” said Malinowski.
Rep. Leonard Lance has voted 9 times to defund Planned Parenthood, which provides healthcare services to nearly 100,000 individuals in New Jersey. Just last year, he backed a federal 20-week abortion ban.
“If women can’t count on the Supreme Court to protect them, they need to be able to count on their representatives in Congress. Lance has shown year after year that he will sell them out to the extremists in his party every time,” said Malinowski.
Tom has received the endorsements of Planned Parenthood Action Fund and NARAL Pro-Choice America. He has been an uncompromising advocate for women throughout the course of his long career in public service. Women’s rights and representation were a central plank of his work from Saudi Arabia to Afghanistan to Iraq while serving as Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor.
