Democrat Laura Friedman added another blockbuster endorsement to her campaign today – the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Project Los Angeles.
Friedman has been a lifelong advocate for women’s reproductive rights, access to health care and safe and legal abortion.
Celinda Vazquez, VP of Public Affairs, Planned Parenthood Advocacy Project Los Angeles County, stated:
“We need courageous legislators who will stand up to the attacks on women’s health care and reproductive rights. That’s why Laura Friedman is our choice for California State Assembly. Laura Friedman will stand with us.”
“I am truly honored to be supported by Planned Parenthood,” responded Friedman. “Some of my earliest memories are of going to rallies and walking precincts with my mother to protect a woman’s right to choose. I am proud to stand with Planned Parenthood as they withstand unfair attacks from the radical right. And I am proud that they stand with me.”
Planned Parenthood is the second major organization to endorse Laura Friedman in recent days. Last week Sierra Club California endorsed Friedman in recognition of her path-breaking environmental leadership.
Other important organizational endorsements include the California League of Conservation Voters, California Nurses Association, Emily’s List and the California Democratic Women’s Legislative Caucus.
