Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania Votes Outlines Questions for Tom Wolf’s Meeting with PennLive Editorial Board

Harrisburg, PA (October 5, 2018) – Today, Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania Votes (PPPV) outlined three questions it would like answered when Governor Tom Wolf meets with the PennLive editorial board on October 8.

The questions are:

  • Health care is top of mind for Pennsylvanians. You expanded Medicaid for more than 700,000 Pennsylvanians, while Scott Wagner has said we should roll it back. Why do you believe expanding Medicaid was important, and has PA seen any cost or health improvement outcomes in the time since the expansion?
  • If the Trump administration enacts the domestic gag rule, what will you do to ensure that health care providers receiving Title X funds will be able to counsel patients on abortion?
  • With a vacancy on the Supreme Court and President Trump’s pledge to nominate a justice who will help overturn Roe v. Wade, what steps will you take if re-elected to protect access to safe, legal abortion in Pennsylvania?

Statement from Sari Stevens, Executive Director, Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania Votes

Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania Votes supports Tom Wolf for Governor in 2018. He has proven that he is a champion for women and families and will stand up for health care, including reproductive health care. We have submitted these questions to give Governor Wolf the opportunity to expand on his positions on these issues. We want voters to make a fully informed decision when they go to the polls to re-elect him on November 6.
