MARK KELLY (D)

Mark Kelly is a retired astronaut who will fight nonstop to protect our health care because he understands the stakes for reproductive rights in the Grand Canyon State.

I'm running to protect health care for all Arizonans and that includes fighting against any threat to women's reproductive rights.

MARTHA McSALLY (R), Incumbent

McSally has moved in lockstep with anti-abortion politicians in Congress who seek to undermine access to sexual and reproductive health care and block patients’ access to care at Planned Parenthood health centers.

Let’s get this f***ing thing done!

Martha McSally, May 4, 2017, urging Republican colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and block patients who rely on public health care programs from accessing care at Planned Parenthood health centers

McSally has a lengthy record of supporting anti-abortion legislation. In both houses of Congress, she has sponsored measures that attempt to “defund,” or block patients’ access to, Planned Parenthood health centers — and amplified false, medically groundless claims that demonize people who seek abortion late in pregnancy due to challenging circumstances.

Her opposition to health-care access includes hostility to the Affordable Care Act, the landmark 2010 law that makes cancer screenings, annual exams, and birth control available without a co-pay to Americans with health insurance. Over 700,000 Arizonans could lose their health coverage if the law were undone, but McSally voted in 2017 to repeal it — and has tried since then to evade scrutiny over the potential impact of her anti-ACA stance on Arizona voters.
