Arizonans deserve a senator who will boldly defend abortion rights and access for all

Phoenix, AZ – Tonight, the choice between Sen. Mark Kelly and Blake Masters could not be clearer. On the debate stage, Kelly proudly championed his record advocating for the health, freedoms, and safety of Arizonans. Masters, on the other hand, unsurprisingly lied about his extreme views on abortion and was evasive when asked about infamously scrubbing his website

Watch it for yourself:

Statement from Kelley Dupps, spokesperson, Planned Parenthood Votes in Arizona:  

“Blake Masters has continued to show that he is out of touch with Arizonans and a grave threat  to health, rights, and safety. That is not what Arizonans need. We need a proven leader in the Senate who we can trust to defend the reproductive freedom of Arizonans — not another anti-abortion rights zealot who attempts to rewrite history and gaslight voters in an effort to hide his extremist agenda. Reproductive rights is on the ballot and this November, voters will re-elect Sen. Mark Kelly to protect access to safe, legal abortion.”

Last month, Planned Parenthood Votes launched a $1.5 million midterm electoral program in Arizona to elect Sen. Mark Kelly and Katie Hobbs and to flip the Arizona House, Senate, and Maricopa County Attorney’s office. This is part of “Take Control,” a national $50 million campaign by Planned Parenthood advocacy and political organizations to protect reproductive rights across the country.  

Abortion is banned in Arizona now that  the Pima County Superior Court sided with anti-abortion rights politicians and allowed a near-total 1864 abortion ban to take effect last month. Both Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake and Senate candidate Blake Masters support abortion bans and restrictions.
