PPFA to Testify at Court Hearings
WASHINGTON, DC — Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) Interim President Karen Pearl will testify next week as a public witness at the Senate hearings for Supreme Court nominee John Roberts, PPFA announced today.
"The Roberts nomination seriously threatens the health and safety of women and teens. It's critical that Roberts provide honest, thorough answers about his judicial philosophy and his commitment to the protection of privacy, and women's health and safety," Pearl said. "It's a great honor and an even greater responsibility to represent the millions of women, men and young people who rely on Planned Parenthood for health care information and services."
The stakes could not be higher for reproductive freedom and women's health and safety with the nomination of John Roberts to the Supreme Court. The next justice confirmed to a lifetime appointment on the Supreme Court may cast the deciding vote in Ayotte v. Planned Parenthood, a case that could undermine protections for women's health.
