Planned Parenthood Votes Statement on Joe Heck Dropping Support for Trump

Contact: Planned Parenthood Action Fund Media Office, 212-261-4433

For Immediate Release: 10.08.16

 

Quote from Dawn Laguens, head of Planned Parenthood Votes:

“Joe Heck supported Donald Trump as he bullied, demeaned, and disrespected women on the campaign trail. He said he had “high hopes” about Trump becoming president after he called Mexican immigrants rapists. And Joe Heck stood by Trump after he said that women should be punished for having an abortion. Joe Heck is not brave, rather he’s a desperate politician trying not to lose.”
