Why We Support Danny O’Connor

He’s a staunch reproductive health and rights advocate — and he’s got our back.

Thousands of Ohio women and families benefit from access to vital health care, including cancer screenings and preventive care, through Planned Parenthood. I will always be a partner in the fight for affordable health care, equality of care, and for the right of women to make their own health care decisions.

  • He stands with Planned Parenthood, and he has pledged to support policy that protects and expands abortion access.

  • He is a champion for people with pre-existing conditions — including his mom, who beat breast cancer with the help of high-quality health care — and believes access to health care coverage “should not depend on your resources or the type of job you have.”

  • He’s endorsed by Planned Parenthood Action Fund.

Why We Oppose Troy Balderson

He’s a radical politician who wants to take health care away from Ohioans.

Troy believes life begins at conception and is 100% pro-life, and it’s why Ohio Right to Life PAC has endorsed his campaign.

  • He wants to ban abortion.

  • He has voted at least six times for medically unnecessary restrictions on safe, legal abortion — including a 20-week abortion ban that is now law in Ohio and a bill that would have banned abortion at six weeks of pregnancy (before most women even know they’re pregnant).

  • He voted to “defund” Planned Parenthood and pledges to finish the job if given the chance — blocking Planned Parenthood patients from preventive care such as birth control, STD testing and treatment, and cancer screenings.

Election Details

Join our universe of Action Takers and Change Makers. Together, we will fight against attempts to roll back reproductive rights, hold our elected officials accountable for their actions, and ensure that we get out the vote for our champions in November.

Sign our pledge to resist, persist, and vote to protect reproductive rights for all Ohioans.
