Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund’s Legislative Scorecard reveals a strong majority of Massachusetts legislators support access to sexual and reproductive health!

The scorecard assigns each Massachusetts state representative and senator a rating of: "Champion", "Ally", "Mixed", "Opponent", or "NEI" (not enough information) based off of each legislator’s lifetime voting record, co-sponsorship history, public statements, and other factors.

Champion: A legislator who has demonstrated leadership on the Advocacy Fund’s legislative agenda and works in partnership with us to advance our shared goal to improve access to sexual and reproductive health care and protect the health and rights of Massachusetts residents.

Ally: A legislator who consistently supports our legislative and policy agenda including protecting access to safe, legal abortion. 

Mixed: A legislator who may oppose access to safe, legal abortion - but who supports preventive health measures – such as family planning and sex education – and is willing to work with the Advocacy Fund in support of these issues. In other instances, a “mixed” legislator may support abortion access, but has taken action against sexual and reproductive health care access either with a vote or public statement.

Opponent: A legislator who vocally opposes access to safe, legal abortion and/or access to sexual and reproductive health care more broadly. A legislator who supports some health issues included in the Advocacy Agenda may still be considered an Advocacy Fund opponent.

Not Enough Information (NEI): A legislator who has not participated in the Advocacy Fund’s endorsement process or has not taken a public stance on our priority issues.

Scroll below to find out whether or not your state legislators stand with Planned Parenthood and support reproductive health.
