Now that the bulk of these debates have concluded for the cycle, let’s take a look at a handful of candidates endorsed by Planned Parenthood advocacy and political organizations that have stood up for women’s health and rights.
Defenders are a core group of supporters who have said they'll give their time to defend Planned Parenthood, the health services they provide, and the people who rely on them — in what just may be the fight of our lives.
Mike Pence isn't your average anti-abortion governor. Not only has he signed 8 anti-abortion bills into law in Indiana, but one bill he signed into law earlier this year was so extreme that even some of his fellow anti-abortion Republicans called one provision of the bill “dangerous” and warned that it could lead to “back-room abortions.”
Mike Pence has been leading a decade long crusade against Planned Parenthood — and he’s awful proud of that record. And if he and Donald Trump are elected this November, Pence promises they’ll take his “defunding” agenda with them to Washington, DC. Really.
At Monday’s debate, Hillary Clinton rightly called out Donald Trump for his incredibly long record of misogyny — and Trump hasn’t stopped fuming about it since. And this is how Trump behaves when he claims he won the debate. Imagine how badly he’d behave if he knew what the polls have shown: that voters think he lost. Badly.
New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte is pinkwashing her record so voters forget she voted 6 times to defund Planned Parenthood and has been an active crusader against reproductive health care access for her entire career.
