The shooting rampage in a popular gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, was a horrendous instance of violence against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.

“This atrocious act of violence was a deliberate attack against members of a marginalized community,” says John Hetherington, Ipas president and chief executive officer. “Our hearts are with the victims’ families and friends.”

Ipas supports the sexual and reproductive rights and freedoms of all people. Many of our staff are members of the LGBT community and we stand in solidarity with them and others across the country.
