Planned Parenthood Action Fund Endorses Antonio Delgado for Congress

Kingston, NY – Our campaign is proud to announce that Planned Parenthood Action Fund has endorsed Antonio Delgado for Congress in New York’s 19th congressional district.

“We are proud to endorse Antonio Delgado for Congress,” said Dawn Laguens, Executive Vice President of Planned Parenthood Action Fund. “Antonio is a voice we can count on to defend equal rights and a woman’s right to make her own decisions. We desperately need new leaders in Washington who understand the health care system and who will stand up for women everywhere. We know Antonio will be a strong advocate and work with us to expand access to quality, affordable health care for all women.”

“I am very grateful to have the support of Planned Parenthood Action Fund as we fight to flip this district from red to blue. We should all be in agreement that providing quality, affordable health care is an undeniable basic right, not a partisan issue,” said Delgado. “At a time when women’s rights and basic freedoms are under attack, I will strongly support Planned Parenthood patients and their care, ensuring access to quality and affordable health care, and will continue to promote and support equality measures for women.”  

Since 1934, Planned Parenthood has been a steady and trusted presence in the Hudson Valley region. Every day, more than 8,000 people walk through the doors of their 600+ health centers across the country. Planned Parenthood treats more than 2.4 million people per year — regardless of where they live, their income, their immigration status, and their race, religion, gender identity, or sexual orientation.
