Washington - Planned Parenthood Federation of America President Cecile Richards released the following statement on re-election of Representative Nancy Pelosi as Democratic Minority Leader:


“Leader Pelosi is a steadfast advocate for women, their reproductive rights and their access to healthcare. Her re-election as Democratic Leader ensures attacks on critical health services like no-cost birth control, cancer screenings, STD tests and abortion will be met head-on.


“President-elect Donald Trump is filling his administration with extreme women’s health opponents such as Tom Price for HHS and Jeff Sessions for Attorney General. Republican leaders in Congress are publicly planning to mount attacks on everything from the care Planned Parenthood provides to 2.5 million patients, the no copay birth control 55 million women receive under the ACA to safe and legal abortion. Now, more than ever, we will need fierce advocates like Nancy Pelosi to block these attacks.


“Planned Parenthood looks forward to her continued leadership and will work together to stand up to the Trump Administration’s attacks on women’s health and rights.”


Planned Parenthood is the nation’s leading provider and advocate of high-quality, affordable health care for women, men, and young people, as well as the nation’s largest provider of sex education. With over 650 health centers across the country, Planned Parenthood organizations serve all patients with care and compassion, with respect and without judgment. Through health centers, programs in schools and communities, and online resources, Planned Parenthood is a trusted source of reliable health information that allows people to make informed health decisions. We do all this because we care passionately about helping people lead healthier lives.
