WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, celebrates the new Democratic pro-choice majority now secure in the Pennsylvania state House. EMILYs List President Laphonza Butler released the following statement:
“EMILYs List is thrilled to celebrate the Democratic pro-choice majority now elected in the Pennsylvania House. Abortion rights were on the ballot, and Pennsylvanians stood up to protect their rights and held Republicans accountable for their attempts to advance an extreme agenda that is out of step with Keystone State values.
The women elected include groundbreakers and EMILYs List-endorsed women who bravely shared their reproductive health care stories on the House floor to fight for our rights and freedoms. We look forward to seeing the progress they will make in this battleground state.”

EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, works to elect Democratic pro-choice women up and down the ballot and across the country with a goal of fighting for our rights and our communities. Our work is centered around a fundamental vision: Run. Win. Change the World. EMILYs List has raised over $700 million in service to that vision and has helped Democratic women win competitive elections by recruiting and training candidates, supporting and helping build strong campaigns, researching the issues that impact women and families, running one of the largest independent expenditure campaigns for Democrats, and turning out women voters to the polls. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect the country's first woman as vice president, 159 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 16 governors, and nearly 1,400 women to state and local office. More than 40% of the candidates EMILYs List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. Visit www.emilyslist.org for more information.
