Berg receives 100-percent rating from Planned Parenthood

SACRAMENTO Patty Berg received a 100-percent pro-choice rating from Planned Parenthood on her support for reproductive health and pro-choice voting.

“I am honored to receive a high rating from Planned Parenthood,” said Berg, D-Eureka. “Protecting reproductive rights and fighting for good reproductive health has always been a cornerstone in my career.”

Berg is a lifelong advocate for reproductive rights. In the 1980s, she co-founded CHOICES, Humboldt County's first pro-choice Political Action Committee, and developed California's first K-12 comprehensive family life education curriculum for public schools which received national distribution.

While in the Legislature, Berg has supported Planned Parenthood in its efforts to protect reproductive freedom and opposed legislation that attempts to erode those rights.
