Dave Min Receives 100% Rating from Planned Parenthood
Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino Counties Highlights Min’s Unwavering Support for Reproductive Rights

IRVINE – Today, on the eve of tomorrow’s Fourth Annual Women’s March, the Dave Min for State Senate Campaign announced that it had received a 100% pro-choice score from the Planned Parenthood of Orange & San Bernardino Counties (PPOSBC)’s Community Action Fund.

“I am so honored to be recognized as an ally of Planned Parenthood and its mission to protect the reproductive rights of women. Now more than ever, it is critical that we fight for women’s rights and equality. I look forward to carrying that fight to the State Senate,” said Dave Min, candidate for California’s 37th State Senate district.
