WASHINGTON — Today, Planned Parenthood Federation of America President Alexis McGill Johnson thanked Speaker Nancy Pelosi for her decades of service to America, and her tireless leadership in support of communities nationwide, as Speaker Pelosi announced that she will not serve in leadership in the next Congress.

Throughout her tenure in office and historic career as the first female Speaker in U.S. history, Speaker Pelosi has been a steadfast ally in her support of sexual and reproductive health care. She championed the Affordable Care Act—insisting that it include coverage for birth control without a co-pay and other critical preventive services for women—and secured health care for millions of people, supported funding for research and treatment of HIV/AIDS, coordinated the House response to the fall of Roe v. Wade, advocated relentlessly for LGBTQ+ equality, was a vocal decades-long opponent of the global gag rule, and never wavered in her protection of our democracy.  

Statement from Alexis McGill Johnson, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Federation of America: 

“Speaker Pelosi is in a class all her own. For decades, she has delivered on visionary, transformative policies and funding for sexual and reproductive health programs both domestically and globally. Speaker Pelosi’s leadership endured efforts to take away health care coverage, and strip people of the right to control their lives, bodies, and futures. Through it all, her grace, grit, and determination have guided her and our country, leaving our communities and the world all the better. The country is grateful for her immeasurable contributions.”
