“We Decide 2020” will be Planned Parenthood advocacy and political organizations’ largest electoral program ever. Last year, Planned Parenthood advocacy and political organizations announced a historic investment of at least $45 million in key battleground states during the 2020 cycle. Planned Parenthood Votes also released a “Candidate Spotlight” tool that details the presidential candidates’ stances on birth control, abortion access, reproductive health care, and more.
Poll after poll shows that voters want champions for reproductive health — including the right to access a safe and legal abortion — in public office, and that politicians who want to take those rights away aren’t just pursuing bad policy, but a bad political strategy. Support for abortion access is at an all-time high, and there is no state in the nation where banning abortion is popular. Voters overwhelmingly elected reproductive health champions in both the 2018 and 2019 elections, while soundly rejecting the false and debunked attacks from anti-abortion politicians.

Background: Reproductive health is a top issue for voters in the 2020 election — and a winning issue for candidates.
- A record-high 77 percent of Americans say they do not want to see Roe v. Wade overturned, and there is no state in this country where banning abortion is popular.
- A recent Kaiser Health News survey showed that the majority of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents believed that “Democratic candidates for president are spending too little time talking about women’s health care.”
- According to the PBS NewsHour-NPR-Marist poll, 81 percent of Americans said a candidate’s position on abortion would be a major or minor factor in deciding their vote for president in 2020.
