The Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund (PPAF) celebrated Dan Ryan’s victory tonight in the election for the 2nd Suffolk District in the Massachusetts House of Representatives. PPAF is the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts.
Martha “Marty” Walz, PPAF president, released the following statement:
“I am proud to congratulate Dan Ryan on his victory tonight. Throughout his career, he has advocated for the health and well-being of families and young people in the community. As a father and community activist, Dan Ryan understands the importance of protecting and expanding access to safe, legal abortion, family planning funding, and comprehensive sexuality education in schools.
“Dan’s election will help us improve the fragile majority of members in the state House of Representatives who support women’s access to sexual and reproductive health care. As a State Representative, Dan will continue to fight for legislation that advances women’s health and comprehensive, medically-accurate sexuality education in Massachusetts.”
