Planned Parenthood Action Fund of New York has fought to make sure sure every woman and family has access to care and information without facing financial, emotional, or other barriers,” said Costa Constantinides.  “Its staff members have provided women's health care and consultation services for my community and for the entire city, including cancer screening exams, family planning services,

and prenatal care.  I am honored to have their endorsement and look forward to working with them in the City Council.”
