Here are a few elections we’re watching in 2020 that may determine how our work to protect access to the sexual and reproductive health care our communities need and deserve proceeds.
In the mythos of American civil rights, Roe is a pillar of gender equity. In practice, it has allowed for the kind of reproductive freedom that has allowed people who can get pregnant to advance economically and socially in a way that wasn’t accessible before. But in doctrine, Roe is fairly weak as a protector of abortion access and left several gaps that have been targeted and taken advantage of by anti-abortion politicians.
Join us virtually for PinkOut 2020, a celebration of the Planned Parenthood Great Plains Votes community and a fundraiser to help us keep this work moving forward! You’ll be in good company with artists, activists, and Alexis McGill Johnson, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Federation of America.
The 2020 Primary Elections are coming up on Tuesday, August 4th in both Kansas and Missouri. Unlike the Presidential Primaries that happened this spring, the ballot on Tuesday will have a number of races and initiatives on both sides of the state line.
