Planned Parenthood Action Fund endorsed Joe Biden for president Monday in hopes that he will roll back actions taken by the Trump administration against abortion rights.
The endorsement, though unsurprising, comes after a primary in which Biden was pressed by those on the left over his long and varied history on the issue.
“Joe Biden is the only candidate in this race who will stand up for our health and our rights,” Alexis McGill Johnson, acting president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund, said in a statement Monday.
“This election we have a choice — between Donald Trump, whose incompetence and disregard for the law are a danger to us all, and Joe Biden, who is committed to fighting for reproductive health and rights for all,” she said.
In a video announcing the endorsement, Biden said he supports a woman’s “constitutional right to choose” and that he would reverse restrictions on family planning funding put in place by the Trump administration and called “gag rules” by opponents.
