Washington, DC – Planned Parenthood Action Fund released the following statement regarding primary results from Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island:

Statement from Dawn Laguens, Executive Vice President of Planned Parenthood Action Fund:

“Donald Trump’s rhetoric and policies are dividing this country. As president, Donald Trump would be dangerous. He’s called Mexican immigrants “rapists,” he’s condoned violence against protesters who disagree with him, and he’s advocated for women and health care providers to be punished for accessing and providing safe, legal abortion. He flippantly ignores the lives of women, immigrants, and communities of color. This country cannot afford a leader who divides us and disrespects us.”
