Pro-Choice Community Backs Goodfellow

“The attacks by the Trump administration and other state legislatures against women have made it clear to me that we can never compromise on this simple idea: A woman’s healthcare choice should always be between her and her physician,” Goodfellow said.

 

Redlands, CA — The Community Action Fund of Planned Parenthood of San Bernardino and Orange Counties has thrown its support behind Kris Goodfellow in California’s 23rd State Senate District race. This endorsement comes on the heels of Goodfellow's landslide victory at the California Democratic Party’s pre-endorsement conference — where Goodfellow received 87 percent of delegate votes. 

 “I'll continue to advocate for women’s reproductive rights, safety and access to critical preventive healthcare services that our Planned Parenthood facilities provide,” Goodfellow said.” 

 “Inland Empire residents can count on me to fight back vigorously against Republican attempts to turn back the clock on women’s healthcare rights. I’m honored to have the support of the Community Action Fund and look forward to working with members of our pro-choice community to expand reproductive access for all.” 

"The Community Action Fund of Planned Parenthood of San Bernardino and Orange Counties is proud to support Kris Goodfellow,”Patti Compton, Community Action Fund Chair, said.“Our board knows that Kris will be a tireless advocate for reproductive rights and women’s healthcare. Kris is exactly the champion we need fighting for the Inland Empire in Sacramento." 

Status of the Race: Goodfellow has raised more to date than any candidate in the 23rd District race and has continued to rack up notable endorsements, which include receiving 87 percent of delegate votes at the California Democratic Party’s pre-endorsement conference. Goodfellow’s campaign is also being backed by: Senator Connie Leyva, State Controller Betty Yee, Fund Her, SEIU California, the Inland Empire Labor Council, and local leaders throughout the Inland Empire.
