Letter to the editor: Wolf a champion for health care

November 20, 2018 GMT

I volunteer with Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania Votes, and we have been knocking on doors this year to talk with voters about issues that matter to them.

I have talked with people about making sure that we protect Pennsylvanians’ access to health care, which is on the line this coming election. Scott Wagner’s pledge to “defund” Planned Parenthood would leave nearly 90,000 Pennsylvanians without access to basic health care, including cancer screenings, STI tests and birth control.

We need to ensure that we have a health-care champion in the governor’s office for four more years. That champion is Tom Wolf. He has a proven track record of expanding and protecting access to health care -- including reproductive health care -- in the commonwealth. I urge my fellow voters to re-elect Wolf on Nov. 6.
