Statement from Sarah Standiford, national campaign director, Planned Parenthood Votes:
“Donald Trump’s failure of leadership is well documented, and it’s costing American lives. As countries overseas experience a dramatic decline in COVID-19 cases, Trump has made the pandemic worse in the United States, with more than 3 million confirmed cases and rising daily. And as people continue to take to the streets to protest systemic racism and police brutality, Trump has turned to race-baiting and fear mongering. We can’t afford four more years of this, and in November, America has a choice to change the channel. We can choose to elect a compassionate leader who looks for common purpose to move our country forward. For those of us who are deeply concerned about the future of reproductive rights and equitable health care, the choice is clear — we must elect Joe Biden."
In January, Planned Parenthood advocacy and political organizations launched “We Decide 2020,” the largest electoral program ever. Planned Parenthood advocacy and political organizations will make a historic investment of at least $45 million in key battleground states during the 2020 cycle.
Biden has outlined a range of policies to protect and expand access to reproductive health care, including abortion — a stark contrast to Donald Trump, who has spent the past four years pushing policies and actions that threaten access to reproductive health care and rights. Poll after poll shows that voters want champions for reproductive health — including the right to access a safe and legal abortion — in public office. Politicians who want to take those rights away aren’t just pursuing bad policy, but a losing political strategy. In both the 2018 and 2019 elections, voters overwhelmingly elected reproductive health champions, while soundly rejecting falsehoods and attacks from politicians with anti-abortion records.
