PLANNED PARENTHOOD ADVOCACY FUND ENDORSES
STATE REP. NATALIE HIGGINS IN HER RE-ELECTION BID
The Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund of Massachusetts endorsed State Representative Natalie Higgins (D-Leominster) in her re-election campaign in the 4th Worcester District. The PPAF works to protect and increase access to reproductive
health care by advocating for state policies, electing local champions, and organizing supporters to transform Massachusetts into a national leader for reproductive health, rights, and freedom.
“Massachusetts has long been at the forefront in the fight for reproductive rights because of leaders like Rep. Natalie Higgins,” said Dr. Jennifer Childs-Roshak, President of the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund of Massachusetts.
“Rep. Higgins has a strong record advocating for smart sexual and reproductive health policies and is a staunch champion of the ROE Act, pushing to eliminate barriers to abortion care that disproportionately harm Black and brown people, young people, and people with low incomes. The Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund is proud to endorse Rep. Natalie Higgins as a ROE Act Champion and work alongside her to immediately pass the ROE Act and ensure safe, legal abortion is accessible to all.”
“I am thankful to have the support of the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund and to continue our work to advance reproductive health care access across the Commonwealth,” said State Representative Natalie Higgins.
State Representative Natalie Higgins is currently serving her second term as State Representative in the 4th Worcester District, which consists entirely of the city of Leominster. Rep. Higgins is a former nonprofit director and attorney, and has focused on being accessible and available to Leominster residents with early morning and evening office hours. Her priorities in the State House include fighting for high-quality public education from pre-school to college, bringing down the cost of healthcare, supporting working families, and ending sexual and domestic violence.
