ASHEVILLE — Planned Parenthood Action Fund, which works to protect the rights of women to have access to vital reproductive healthcare and sex education, has endorsed Moe Davis for Congress in North Carolina’s 11th District.

“People need to know their elected officials are looking out for them, especially during a public health crisis like we’re experiencing now,” Alexis McGill Johnson, Planned Parenthood Action Fund acting president, said in a statement released today. “It’s more important than ever that we have reproductive health champions in Congress fighting back against Donald Trump and leadership in the Senate who are actively working to undermine our healthcare and leaving us woefully unprepared to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Davis, the retired Air Force Colonel and former Chief Prosecutor at Guantanamo Bay, National Security Specialist for Congress, law professor at Howard University and judge with the U.S. Department of Labor, has long supported a woman’s right to make her own decisions about her reproductive health free from governmental interference.

“Planned Parenthood has been a champion of reproductive healthcare for over a century and has provided essential healthcare services to millions of Americans from all walks of life,’’ Davis said. “I’m grateful they have endorsed my campaign. I believe all individuals have the right to make their own healthcare choices and I believe all individuals have the right to healthcare. Neither one should be dependent on economic status.”

Planned Parenthood Action Fund joins the Sierra Club, VoteVets, AFL-CIO Western North Carolina Central Labor Council, Equality NC and Patriotic Millionaires in endorsing Davis.
