Champions like Stacy Brenner, Chloe Maxmin victorious

After being one of only a handful of states to protect and expand reproductive rights last year, Maine continues to lead by re-electing strong pro-reproductive health majorities in both the State Senate and the State House.  

The Planned Parenthood Maine Action Fund PAC endorsed more than 100 legislative candidates this year and many were victorious; with some races still to be determined, there will be at least 102 pro-reproductive health leaders in the legislature. The Maine State Senate increased its pro-reproductive health majority from 19 seats to 21 seats.

Voters support safe and legal abortion and do not want Roe v. Wade to be overturned; further research shows that 50 percent of voters are more likely to vote for a candidate who supports safe, legal abortion while fewer than 20 percent want a candidate who is against the right to an abortion.

Statement from Nicole Clegg, Senior Vice President of Public Policy, Planned Parenthood of Northern New England

With record turnout, Maine voters have sent a clear message to politicians that our health and our rights are not negotiable. Since 2011, states have enacted more than 480 restrictions with the goal to make it harder to obtain a safe, legal abortion. While we can’t control what happens in other states, we can work to ensure affordable, quality health care for Mainers is available to all people regardless of their income, immigration status, zip code, or health history. And with strong reproductive rights majorities in the legislature, that’s what we’ll continue to do.”
