Wilt Earns Planned Parenthood Advocates of New York's Endorsement

ROCHESTER, NY: Robin Wilt (D-WFP), running for New York State Senate in the 56th district, has earned the endorsement of the non-partisan, not-for-profit Planned Parenthood Advocates of New York (PPANY).

“In a world where women are still dying in childbirth at an alarmingly high rate, the important work of Planned Parenthood Advocates of New York (PPANY) stands out all the more,” Wilt said.  “I am truly honored to have received the endorsement of PPANY, and I will continue to stand with them in the struggle to ensure universal access to women’s reproductive health.”

Planned Parenthood’s mission is “to protect and support every person’s right to make voluntary, informed decisions about sexuality and reproduction in order to lead a healthy and fulfilling life,” the organization’s website says.  Planned Parenthood was founded in New York in 1916.

Wilt, a small business owner, grassroots organizer, and mother of three has long been an advocate for women’s reproductive health and rights.  Ensuring access to quality, affordable health care is a hallmark of her activism.  In 2006, Wilt worked to secure renewal of the State Child Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), and in her role as founder of Progressive Democrats of America’s Genesee Valley Chapter (PDAGV), she conducted educational forums, rallies, and public meetings on health care reform.
