MJ HEGAR (D), Challenger

A former Air Force major and a Purple Heart-decorated veteran, Hegar helped get the Pentagon to repeal its ban on women serving in ground combat. Now she wants to fight for people’s rights in the U.S. Senate. 

I’ve had two difficult pregnancies — I’m so glad the government wasn’t standing between me and my doctor during very personal conversations. I support access to reproductive health care for all Texans, and I'll always fight for a woman’s right to choose.

  • Hegar supports creating a federal law that protects the right to abortion access and stops states from unconstitutional bans and restrictions on abortion.

  • She vehemently opposes the Title X gag rule, and wants people who rely on Title X for access to sexual and reproductive health care to once again be able to obtain care at Planned Parenthood health centers. 

  • “In a state with one of the highest maternal mortality rates,” Hegar has said, “I’m proud to fight alongside Planned Parenthood Action [Fund] & Planned Parenthood Texas Votes so EVERY Texan can receive quality health care.”

  • Hegar supports increasing access to sex education.

SEN. JOHN CORNYN (D), Incumbent

Sen. Cornyn scored a 0% on the Planned Parenthood Action Fund Congressional Scorecard, and has attacked sexual health and reproductive rights throughout his career. 

The conservative transformation of our courts will be President Trump’s single greatest legacy!

Sen. John Cornyn, Dec. 13, 2019
