Comitta Earns Planned Parenthood Endorsement for Support of Reproductive Freedom

WEST CHESTER, PA (April 3, 2024) - In recognition of her steadfast support of reproductive health and freedom, Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania Advocates endorsed State Senator Carolyn Comitta (D-Chester) for re-election.


“In the wake of the devastating Dobbs decision, access to safe abortion care and reproductive freedom continues to be threatened like never before,” Comitta said. “I have always and will always stand strong with our partners and allies in support of reproductive freedom. I am honored to once again earn the trust of Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania Advocates for our re-election campaign. As long as I am serving, I will always support the rights of all women – and all people – to make their own decisions about their health, their bodies, and their futures.”


Planned Parenthood is one of the nation’s largest providers of reproductive care providing preventative care, birth control, and screenings for cervical and other cancers. Each year, the organization serves 90,000 patients in Pennsylvania with high-quality and affordable health services.


Earlier this year, Comitta and her Senate colleagues joined Planned Parenthood President Alexis McGill Johnson and Governor Josh Shapiro for a discussion on reproductive freedom and access to care for Pennsylvania residents.


“I am deeply concerned that young women are at risk of losing their freedoms and have less control over their bodies than their mothers and grandmothers had,” Comitta said. “We must ensure that abortion care and essential health services remain safe, legal, and accessible in Pennsylvania.”


Comitta previously co-sponsored legislation to codify the right to abortion care in Pennsylvania.


First elected to the Senate in 2020, Comitta is seeking her second term to represent Chester County residents in the 19th Senatorial district. She previously served two terms in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and represented West Chester, Pennsylvania as a member of Borough Council and was its first woman to be elected Mayor.
