Planned Parenthood Congratulates Kerry on Secretary of State Nomination

Washington – Planned Parenthood Federation of America President Cecile Richards today congratulated Senator John Kerry (D-MA) after President Obama officially nominated him to be the next secretary of state:

“Throughout his distinguished career, Senator Kerry has been a consistent supporter of women and their access to health care here in the U.S. and around the world, and we look forward to having him represent this American value in his new role as secretary of state.
“Secretary Clinton has made incredible strides in promoting the well-being of women and girls and gender equality as a central element of US foreign policy, and has left a clear framework for how to continue this leadership.  We know that Senator Kerry will continue this legacy, and we stand ready to work with him to expand access to reproductive health globally, improve the implementation of global health programs, and increase America’s leadership on reproductive rights in the international arena.”
