Katie Hobbs (D)

Hobbs, Arizona’s secretary of state, is a proven champion of reproductive rights. Her experience as a social worker and domestic violence advocate shaped her belief that the decision to have a child should belong to the pregnant person — and no one else.

I will do everything in my power as a mother, as a social worker, as a domestic violence advocate, and as governor to stop these unprecedented attacks and to secure women’s rights for the next generation.

  • Hobbs has strongly opposed attempts to end Arizonans’ access to abortion. Condemning the signing of a 15-week abortion ban into law, Hobbs said: “our elected leaders have chosen to side with the extremists … and turn their back on the overwhelming majority of Arizonans who support the constitutional right to choose.”

  • As the minority leader of the Arizona Senate, Hobbs voted against every proposal to restrict access to abortion — including attempts to limit health-insurance coverage for abortion and to authorize unannounced inspections of abortion-providing facilities.

  • After the U.S. Supreme Court ended the federal constitutional right to abortion, Hobbs shared about her miscarriage. “Losing a pregnancy is already hard enough,” she wrote. “I can’t imagine what that situation would have been like had I been told that the best medical decision for my health is also one that would be considered criminal and would land my doctor in prison.”


Kari Lake (R)

An endorsee of former President Donald Trump, Lake favors total abortion bans — including Arizona’s archaic 1864 ban, which would throw abortion providers in jail and force Arizonans to travel out of state to access abortion. 

We can't just win in 2022. Our victory needs to be an utter refutation of this demonic ideology [of supporting abortion rights].

Mark Kelly (D), Incumbent

A longtime advocate for abortion rights both as a private citizen and a senator, Kelly knows everyone deserves access to safe and legal abortion. 

This is an all-hands-on-deck moment. I am resolved to defend and protect the right of Arizona women to make their own health care decisions.

  • Mark Kelly is a co-sponsor of the Women’s Health Protection Act — which would write protection of the right to access abortion into federal law. He explained his vote for the bill as a vote “to make sure that women can make these decisions for themselves, and … to protect women’s health care.” 

  • As the Supreme Court prepared to strip us of the right to abortion by overturning Roe v. Wade, Kelly signed onto a brief in defense of abortion rights. Roe v. Wade is the law of the land,” Kelly said, “and it needs to stay that way.” 

  • Kelly understands the stakes for Arizonans in post-Roe reality. “A patient’s right to make their own healthcare decisions — including whether or not to have an abortion — is a cornerstone of reproductive health care,” Kelly has said. “I’ll always fight to make sure that decision stays in the hands of Arizonans.” [Facebook, 10/21/21]


Blake Masters (R), Challenger

Masters is an extremist who supports criminalizing abortion providers and instating a national abortion ban.

Repeal Roe v. Wade. It was wrong the day it was decided.

  • Masters favors a so-called fetal personhood law — a medically inaccurate definition that would not only ban abortion nationwide but potentially some forms of birth control as well.

  • A Trump-endorsed candidate, Masters has claimed that “militant atheists” and “secular liberals” propelled by a “communist impulse” view abortion as a “sacrificial ritual.” 

  • Masters is a protegé of billionaire Trump supporter Peter Thiel, who once complained that “the extension of [the right to vote] to women … rendered the notion of ‘capitalist democracy’ into an oxymoron.”

  • In language since removed, Masters’ campaign website said that he would only vote to confirm nominees to the federal courts “who understand that Roe and Griswold — the 1965 case that recognized a right to privacy and extended federal constitutional protection to the right to use birth control — “were wrongly decided.”
