Featured Legislative Primary Elections

House District 36: Representative Erin Molchany
Erin Molchany

"To say this endorsement was an easy decision for us is a monumental understatement. Erin brings energy and passion to the fight for women's reproductive healthcare, while her opponent has spent twenty years voting time after time to restrict women's rights and health. In the last 12 years, Harry Readshaw has cast 31 votes against access to reproductive healthcare, even voting against an amendment that would have protected patients from the harassment and intimidation of protestors. Erin Molchany represents the views of the voters of the 36th district, and we are thrilled to be investing in this important race." – Sari Stevens, Executive Director

House District 164: Billy Smith
Billy Smith

"The Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania PAC is thrilled to announce its endorsement of Billy Smith for Representative," said Sari Stevens, Executive Director of Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania Advocates and PAC. "Billy is a strong advocate for women’s health and rights, and will fight for women’s access to birth control, preventive health care, and reproductive rights in the Legislature. Margo Davidson voted against access to safe, legal abortion an astounding seventeen times in just three years. It's time for a change in the 164th district, and that's why we're supporting Billy Smith for State Representative."
