FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – September 17, 2018

Webster Groves, MO — Democratic congressional candidate Cort VanOstran announced today that he has received the endorsement of Planned Parenthood Action Fund.

“We need leaders who will protect a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions. The people of Missouri’s Second District have found that leader in Cort VanOstran. We are thrilled to endorse Cort for U.S. Congress, and know he will stand strong against attacks on sexual and reproductive health care,” said Dawn Laguens, Executive Vice President of Planned Parenthood Action Fund.

“I am honored to have earned the support of Planned Parenthood Action Fund in my campaign for Congress,” said VanOstran. “Women’s access to health care is on the line in November and we need leaders who understand that a woman’s private medical decisions should remain between her and her health care provider, not the federal government. Every person deserves access to quality, affordable health care in this country. Planned Parenthood and I share that commitment.”

Planned Parenthood Action Fund joins NARAL Pro-Choice America, End Citizens United, Teamsters, United Steelworkers, and a host of other national groups in endorsing VanOstran, who’s race for Congress was just upgraded by Cook Political Report.

Cort VanOstran is a lawyer, a teacher, and Democratic candidate for Congress in Missouri’s Second Congressional District.
