Planned Parenthood gives Ralph Northam 100 percent rating
“As a physician, Ralph Northam brings a unique perspective to the State Senate and will do the same as lieutenant governor. He has always been a vocal advocate for issues which effect women’s reproductive health, and he isn’t afraid to stand up for what he believes. As lieutenant governor, the women of Virginia can rest assured that Ralph will continue to advocate for expanded access to quality care and stand with us on the critical issues facing our state including education, voting access and public safety,” Planned Parenthood said in a statement.
Dr. Northam worked with Planned Parenthood to defeat the transvaginal ultrasound bill. Northam has now earned a 100% rating from Planned Parenthood and the endorsements of the Virginia Education Association and the Washington Post.
“I am honored to have received a perfect ranking from Planned Parenthood,” said Northam. “As a doctor, I understand the importance of protecting women’s health care rights from the radical Republican agenda. I worked with Planned Parenthood to defeat the transvaginal ultrasound bill and look forward to working with them as Lieutenant Governor.”
