Planned Parenthood Advocates of New York to Harold Ford Jr.: Stop proclaiming yourself as prochoice

Ford says one thing about his position on abortion and his voting record in Congress says another

ALBANY, NY (02/14/2010)(readMedia)– In anticipation of Harold Ford Jr.’s appearance in the Capital Region this evening, Sunday, February 14, 2010, Planned Parenthood Advocates of New York urges the former Tennessee Congressman to stop proclaiming himself prochoice.

Below is the official statement from M. Tracey Brooks, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Advocates of New York:

“A prochoice representative supports a women’s right to access safe, legal, comprehensive reproductive health care without government interference.”

“Ford’s voting record and recent public statements prove that he does not trust women to make their own decisions. He cannot claim to be supportive of our issues when, as a Tennessee Congressman, he demonstrated that he is clearly not prochoice.”

“Planned Parenthood Action Fund did not endorse Ford in his elections for Congress in 2000 or 2004, nor for his Senate bid in 2006.”

“New Yorkers demand that 100 percent pro-choice champions represent them in the U.S. Senate. If Ford wants to understand the true definition of a pro-choice individual, he need only look at the voting records of New York’s U.S. Senators and compare them with his own.”
