Planned Parenthood Votes! South Atlantic Endorses Josh Stein For Governor

On The 51st Anniversary Of Roe v. Wade, “Reproductive Freedom Is On The Ballot”

Today, Planned Parenthood Votes! South Atlantic announced its endorsement of Attorney General Josh Stein for the 2024 gubernatorial election on what would’ve been the 51st anniversary of Roe v. Wade. As far-right politicians like Lieutenant Governor Mark Robinson seek a total abortion ban with no exceptions, Josh is committed to protecting reproductive freedom in North Carolina.  

“Women should be able to make their own reproductive health care decisions, and as Governor, I will stand up against any efforts by politicians to infringe on their rights,” said Attorney General and candidate for governor Josh Stein. “Reproductive freedom is on the ballot this November – that’s why I am proud to join Planned Parenthood Votes! South Atlantic in this critical fight for North Carolina.”

“Josh Stein is a champion for reproductive freedom with a proven track record of defending our rights and access to health care, including access to legal abortion,” said Jenny Black, President & CEO of Planned Parenthood Votes! South Atlantic. “He will use his veto power to stop any further attacks on reproductive health and reject extreme, partisan agendas pushed by the state legislature. Every North Carolinian should have the freedom to control their own body, life, and future. Mark Robinson, the likely Republican nominee for governor, has made it clear that he wants to have control over our private health care decisions. In fact, Robinson supports a complete, total ban on abortion. Josh Stein is the leader who can defeat Mark Robinson and fight back against his extreme agenda while advocating for policies that will help our families and communities thrive. We are proud to endorse Josh Stein as the governor we need to protect our right to make our own decisions and keep the government out of our health care.”
