State Sen. Jamie Eldridge, D-Acton, has earned the endorsement of three key women's advocacy and pro-choice groups.
NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts, the Massachusetts Chapter of the National Organization for Women Political Action Committee, and the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund of Massachusetts have all endorsed Eldridge as a tireless defender of women's rights, reproductive choice, and access to critical heath and human services.
“I am honored to receive the endorsement of these three organizations,” said Eldridge. “As state senator, I have demonstrated my support for reproductive rights, and I will continue to be a strong advocate for women’s health, safety, and reproductive freedom.”
“NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts is very proud to endorse Senator Eldridge,” said Megan Amundson, NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts’ executive director. “ Senator Eldridge has been a steadfast pro-choice voice in the State Senate and in this district. We applaud his clear commitment to protecting privacy and promoting reproductive health.”
Christina Knowles, chair of the Mass. NOW PAC, said: “Senator Eldridge has been a staunch supporter of our key issues from the very beginning. He has consistently spoken up on behalf of women and girls, taking a lead on ensuring access to shelter and ending housing discrimination against victims of domestic abuse. The Mass. NOW PAC looks forward to electing Senator Eldridge to another term in the Legislature and continuing to work with him on important social justice issues.”
Dianne Luby, president of the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund Massachusetts, said: “Senator Eldridge has a long history of supporting comprehensive family planning services and he understands that investments in family planning and comprehensive sexuality education will save money over time and are essential for the health of our communities. That’s why the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund is proud to endorse Senator Eldridge for reelection.”
