Planned Parenthood Votes Colorado Endorses Jessie Danielson in the Democratic Primary for Colorado House District 24

Statement by Planned Parenthood Votes Colorado VP of Public Affairs Cathy Alderman

DENVER – “Planned Parenthood Votes Colorado is pleased to endorse a strong candidate for this primary election for Colorado House District 24, Jessie Danielson. Jessie has been a strong leader in women’s health for many years, including working for six years for our partner in protecting women’s health, NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado. In that role, she advocated for policies such as providing women who have been raped emergency contraception in emergency rooms to prevent a pregnancy after such an attack. She also defended women against attacks by politicians in the legislature seeking to create policies to interfere with the personal health care decisions of Colorado women, their families and their doctors.

“Jessie will bring years of experience in women’s health, as well as the dedication to protecting our rights, as a member of Colorado’s General Assembly.”
