2022 Reproductive Health Scorecard
PPESA’s Reproductive Health Care Scorecard educates the public about candidates’ positions on issues affecting the reproductive health and rights of New Yorkers.
Candidates interested in completing the 2022 Reproductive Health Questionnaire may do so here.
Responses to this questionnaire will be used to inform PPESA’s online Reproductive Health Care scorecard. The rating scale (0-100%) will educate New Yorkers about positions taken by incumbent public officials and candidates for public office on issues affecting Planned Parenthood health care providers and the patients they serve. This is not an indication of endorsement or non-endorsement of any candidate or incumbent. Ratings will be released on a rolling basis and are based on factors including response to the candidate questionnaire, candidate interview, public record and public comments. The scorecard is a rolling process, if a candidate would like to participate in the process, they may do so by filling out our questionnaire. Candidates receiving DNS, did not submit a questionnaire, and there is insufficient public information available to assess a score.
