Pennsylvania 2018 Race

Pennsylvania proves why elections matter.

After four years of attacks on Keystone State residents’ reproductive health — arbitrary restrictions designed to block access to safe medical care, opposition to the birth-control guarantee, even opposition to comprehensive, medically accurate sex education — Pennsylvanians elected Governor Tom Wolf, a proven champion of women’s health. When extreme legislators attempted to block Pennsylvanians’ access to care at Planned Parenthood health centers and ban safe, legal abortion even in cases of rape, incest, and fetal abnormalities, Governor Wolf said no, and stood with state residents against politicians who would insert themselves between doctors and their patients.

This year, Pennsylvanians can protect that progress by choosing leaders who will fight forward for sexual and reproductive health.

Gubernatorial Candidates

Tom Wolf (D), Incumbent

Gov. Tom Wolf has stood firm in his support for the women of Pennsylvanians against the dangerous anti-reproductive health agenda of extreme lawmakers.

Wolf has vetoed extreme legislation to infringe on a woman’s right to safe and legal abortion, as well as plans to cut STI testing and cancer screenings at Planned Parenthood facilities across Pennsylvania.

Wolf has fought against attempts to cut health care for thousands of Pennsylvanians and is working to expand access to affordable health care for over 700,000 people across the state. As governor, Wolf will continue to protect the rights and health of all Pennsylvanians.

Scott Wagner (R)

State Senator Scott Wagner is a danger to the rights and health of Pennsylvanians. In the state Senate, Wagner advocated for extreme measures to curtail a woman’s constitutional right to safe and legal abortion — and even fought for legislation to cut STI testing and cancer screenings for thousands of Pennsylvanian women at Planned Parenthood clinics.

Scott Wagner is too extreme and too dangerous for the people of Pennsylvania.
