Congressman Jim Costa’s campaign announced today that he has won the sole endorsement of Planned Parenthood Action Fund.
Alexis McGill Johnson, Acting President and CEO, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, said:
“Planned Parenthood Action Fund is proud to support Jim Costa for Congress. For years, Congressman Costa has been a staunch advocate for reproductive health and rights in the San Joaquin Valley, standing up for Planned Parenthood health centers and the patients they serve. We look forward to working with leaders like Congressman Costa in the fight for reproductive health care, access to birth control, and other critical services."
Planned Parenthood Action Fund has been at the forefront of the battle against Donald Trump’s efforts to take away women’s reproductive rights and access to health care. An estimated one in five American women visits a Planned Parenthood health center in her lifetime, and Planned Parenthood’s more than 600 health centers throughout the United States deliver high-quality, supportive health care to 2.4 million people each year. Planned Parenthood Action Fund fights alongside their partners when the basic human rights of their patients, volunteers, supporters, activists, and staff of all races, faiths, genders, and identities are under attack.
Congressman Costa said: “I am proud to be endorsed by Planned Parenthood Action Fund and strongly support the essential services Planned Parenthood provides to patients in the Valley, from access to birth control to cancer screenings and health education. I will continue to stand with Planned Parenthood to defend against the Trump administration’s attacks that would take away women’s reproductive health care.”
Costa has continued to rack up endorsements from leading Democratic champions and organizations, including Governor Gavin Newsom, Lt. Gov. Eleni Kounalakis, Attorney General Xavier Becerra, US Senators Dianne Feinsten and Kamala Harris, seven current and former local mayors, Black Women Organized for Political Action Fresno/San Joaquin Valley Chapter, Fresno County’s Democratic Women in Action, Equality PAC, and others.
The Primary election will be held on Tuesday, March 3rd, 2020.
