peraltaPlanned Parenthood Empire State Acts is disavowing a mailer released by a member of the Independent Democratic Conference the uses the Planned Parenthood logo and a quote from the group.

The mailer released by Sen. Jose Peralta, a Queens lawmaker who joined the IDC this year, touts his support for reproductive rights and “investing in Planned Parenthood.”

Under Peralta’s photo is the quote from a Planned Parenthood Empire State Acts earlier this year and the Planned Parenthood logo.

“PPESA does not endorse any New York State or local elected officials or parties,” said the group’s president, Robin Chappelle Golston. “We were blindsided and disheartened that the PPESA logo was used in a way that creates the appearance of an endorsement for a candidate or committee. This was done so without our consent.”

She added the group is registered as a 501(c)(4) non-profit that is meant to advance public policy.

An IDC spokeswoman defended the mailer, saying it was never meant to show the group was endorsing Peralta.

“This is an issue-based mailer, not a campaign mailer. It is meant to convey that the IDC is the only conference that universally supports a woman’s right to choose,” the spokeswoman said. “That’s why we are calling on the minority Democratic conference to state where they stand on women’s reproductive rights and call the roll.”

The IDC has been pushing for votes on key liberal measures in the state Senate, narrowly controlled by Republicans, amid pressure from left-leaning groups to rejoin the Democratic mainline conference in the chamber.
