Clare Coleman


Clare Coleman is president and chief executive officer of the National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association. From 2006 to 2009, she served as president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Mid-Hudson Valley in New York State.

Coleman has served on the staffs of four members of the U.S. House of Representatives and as a federal lobbyist for Planned Parenthood Federation of America. She received her bachelor of arts degree in government from Smith College.

Efforts to cut Planned Parenthood's funding show a lack of understanding of the needs of millions of Americans.
Some states' alternative approaches to expanding the program are compromising access to health care for the neediest.
