STATEMENT FROM PLANNED PARENTHOOD FEDERATION OF AMERICA ON THE PASSING OF CONGRESSWOMAN STEPHANIE TUBBS JONES

Planned Parenthood is deeply saddened by the tragic loss of Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones. She was a woman of amazing strength and deep-rooted convictions, and our thoughts go out to her loved ones at this difficult time. Congresswoman Tubbs Jones was always a stalwart champion for women’s health care and a woman's right to choose, and Planned Parenthood was always proud to stand side by side with her on these issues. She will be missed not only by her friends and family, not only by those in her district, but by women across America.

Planned Parenthood Federation of America is the nation's leading sexual and reproductive health care advocate and provider. We believe that everyone has the right to choose when or whether to have a child, and that every child should be wanted and loved. Planned Parenthood affiliates operate more than 880 health centers nationwide, providing medical services and sexuality education for millions of women, men, and teenagers each year. We also work with allies worldwide to ensure that all women and men have the right and the means to meet their sexual and reproductive health care needs.
