Why We Support Sean Casten

He’s the defender we need in Congress

The choice about what is the right decision for a woman is between her and her doctor.

Why We Oppose Peter Roskam

He wants to stand between our basic health and rights

I would vote absolutely to defund Planned Parenthood.

—Peter Roskam

  • Peter Roskam will do anything in his power to block access to birth control and cancer screenings at Planned Parenthood health centers. He has voted 13 times to “defund” Planned Parenthood, putting essential health care at risk for the 50,000 Illinoisans who rely on Planned Parenthood for care.  

  • Roskam describes himself as “unapologetically” anti-abortion and defended attempts to undermine abortion access by claiming that lawmakers “tell people every day what to do with their bodies.”

  • Roskam supports overturning Roe vs. Wade, calling it a “scandal” that “was built on a lie.”
