Philadelphia NOW endorses Numa St. Louis for State Representative PA District 202

Philadelphia NOW endorses Numa St. Louis for State Representative PA District 202. The Philadelphia Chapter of the National Organization for Women Political Action Committee is proud to announce its endorsement of Numa St. Louis for State Representative from Pennsylvania District 202. St. Louis is the only challenger vying for the seat held for almost 40 years by the incumbent.

Terri Falbo, President of Philadelphia NOW, issued the following statement on the group's endorsement: “Numa St. Louis is unequivocal in his support for women’s rights -- especially of women’s access to healthcare. Given the current repressive environment in the Pennsylvania Legislature and its ”War on Women”, Philadelphia NOW is focused on endorsing candidates, such as St. Louis, who support women’s rights without regard to political expediency. As an educator and community organizer, St. Louis has a record as an advocate for more accessible healthcare, sound educational reform and immigrant rights.”

Numa St. Louis accepted the endorsement stating: “Women are the back bone of our community. There is a movement afoot nationwide and in Pennsylvania to deprive women of their rights. I will fight to safeguard their rights including access to reproductive healthcare. I am honored and humbled to receive the endorsement of Philadelphia Chapter of NOW. Knowing their history and legacy of fighting for women’s rights, I will honor this trust placed in me and pledge to be an advocate, an ally and fight for women’s rights on all fronts.”

Numa St. Louis, who -- unlike the incumbent -- has consistently been pro-choice, has pledged to be more responsive to his constituents, while not abusing per-diem funds or enhancing his personal assets at the taxpayers’ expense. St. Louis understands women’s economic security is fundamental to women’s rights. As a legislator, he envisions setting a New Direction for all Pennsylvanians, including women. He intends to fuel economic development in measureable ways, including leveraging available investments and financial resources and combining it with the power of the major employers and anchor Institutions in and around the 202nd District.

Philadelphia NOW looks forward to sending Numa St. Louis to Harrisburg to fight for the rights of women and all Pennsylvanians who need an opportunity to succeed.

While NOW is entitled to endorse whomever it wants to endorse, I am pleased to have the endorsements of Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania and Rep. Babette Josephs, long the leading pro-choice voice in the Pennsylvania General Assembly.

The simple fact is that in this session, and for many years previously, I have been one of the strongest pro-choice votes and voices in Harrisburg. In this legislative session alone, as a member of the Health Committee, I have been a leader against the bill imposing undue burdens on abortion clinics (unfortunately signed into law by Governor Corbett), the bill seeking to require ultrasound portrayal of the fetus that a woman seeking to have an abortion wishes to abort, and the bill seeking to ban women from obtaining a health care policy including abortion coverage from Pennsylvania's new Insurance Exchange.

The Democratic Primary occurs next week. I look forward to working with NOW and other pro-choice groups in the future to secure a better and more responsive Pennsylvania government.

May I simply say what a comfort to uncover somebody
who actually knows what they are talking about over the internet.
You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make
it important. A lot more people should look at this and understand this
side of your story. I was surprised that you are not more popular
since you certainly possess the gift.
