Planned Parenthood Action Fund Endorsements for 2020

What does it take to be endorsed by Planned Parenthood Action Fund?

So far this cycle, Planned Parenthood Action Fund has endorsed 190 federal candidates — and we’re not done yet.

Let’s be real: right now, we’re facing the biggest threat to Roe v. Wade and the fundamental right to bodily autonomy that we’ve ever seen. Simultaneously, we’re also battling attacks on crucial health care services, including an unethical gag rule imposed on Title X providers that threatens access to birth control, STI tests, cancer screenings, and more, for millions of people. 

So we’re showing up across the country for candidates who promise to go above and beyond to protect and expand health care access. With the largest majority of reproductive health care champions in history now in the U.S. House, and a majority of people in the United States supporting reproductive health care access, we’ve got more than a chance for change — if together, we put in the work. 

We’re endorsing early and getting to work for candidates committed to expanding access and removing barriers to care. This list is just the start. Stay tuned for additional endorsements in the coming months.

Featured Candidates

Just who are our featured candidates? They are all over the map — literally.

That’s why we’re going to need all Action Fund members to get involved.

We’re featuring:

  • “Red-to-Pink” Candidates: These candidates are in seats that are crucial to flipping the Senate (and keeping our pro-reproductive health care majority in the House). Why? Because without a majority in both chambers, we cannot protect and expand access to sexual and reproductive health care.

    Here’s why that matters: Despite the hundreds of bills introduced in 49 states in 2019 that would restrict or ban abortion, local champions this year helped keep the vast majority of them at bay. That’s a great start —  but we need to do more. It's time to increase our number of champions in Washington while we have this incredible momentum going. 
  • We’re also highlighting  some of our most vulnerable champions, who have consistently fought for us. It’s time to do our part and fight for them.
