Population Connection Action Fund announced that it has endorsed Christina Hale in her campaign to represent Indiana’s 5th district in the House of Representatives.
Brian Dixon, Senior Vice President at Population Connection Action Fund, said, “Christina Hale is, by far, the best choice to represent Indiana’s 5th district in Congress. She understands the challenges that too many families face and she has devoted her public life to helping more people thrive. We encourage the people of Indiana’s 5th congressional district to elect her.”
The policies being promoted by the Trump/Pence Administration are undermining reproductive health and freedom around the world. The Global Gag Rule is shuttering health clinics and cutting off access to care. The refusal to release aid to the United Nations Population Fund denies crucial maternal and reproductive health care to people in desperate circumstances. The ongoing attacks on Planned Parenthood threaten to deny millions of Americans the health care they need. The continued effort to undermine the Affordable Care Act could strip away protections for people with pre-existing conditions and others struggling to pay for care.
“Access to reproductive health care and affordable contraceptives is key to stronger families, stronger communities and a better world for all of us,” says Hale. “But policies like the Global Gag Rule are limiting care, undermining doctors and disrupting health care systems. When I’m in Congress I’ll fight to expand access, not restrict it. I’m proud to have the support of Population Connection Action Fund and I’m looking forward to joining in the fight for health, empowerment and rights throughout Indiana, across the country and around the world.”
Dixon added, “Christina Hale will stand up for the victims of human rights violations, not the violators, and will fight for the rights of all people to choose their own futures. Christina Hale will fight for health, empowerment and rights for people everywhere. We are proud to stand with her.”
