Minnesota is the last state in the Upper Midwest with a Democratic governor and limited restrictions on safe, legal abortion—and you can help keep it that way—regardless of what happens in Washington D.C.
The most important thing you can do right now is make a contribution to the Planned Parenthood Minnesota Political Action Committee elect lawmakers who will protect our health, our rights, and our communities.
Here’s How We Win
ELECT A GOVERNOR WHO WILL PROTECT REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS
While the Planned Parenthood Action Fund hasn’t made any endorsements yet, we are committed making sure Minnesota elects a governor who will fight to protect access to health care and reproductive freedom, just like Governor Mark Dayton has since 2011.
ELECT SENATOR TINA SMITH
Tina Smith’s mission has been to advocate and work for women. She has been fighting for Planned Parenthood her whole career–as vice president at Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota; as lieutenant governor; and as U.S. senator.
EIGHT CONGRESSIONAL RACES
In Minnesota’s 3rd Congressional District, Planned Parenthood Action Fund endorsed candidate Dean Phillips is committed to economic equality and protecting reproductive health care.
“Both the landmark Roe v Wade decision and the protections provided by the Affordable Care Act are at risk. When I go to Washington, I will stand with the more than 20 million Americans that could lose access to health care, and protect women's fundamental freedom to make their own decisions about their reproductive health. I #CommitToRoe and am proud to have earned the endorsement of NARAL and Planned Parenthood Action Fund.”
And in Minnesota’s 1st Congressional District, Planned Parenthood Action Fund endorsed candidate Dan Feehan knows folks in his district rely on Planned Parenthood for basic health care will work to protect reproductive freedom.
We must re-elect Betty McCollum (MN-04), elect Dean Phillips (MN-03) and Angie Craig (MN-02) to defeat incumbent Reps. Erik Paulsen (MN-03) and Jason Lewis (MN-02), elect Dan Feehan (MN-01) to replace Tim Walz (MN-01), and hold the seats currently held by Reps. Keith Ellison (MN-05), Rick Nolan (MN-08).
THE MINNESOTA HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
With so many federal candidates, it is important not to overlook the Minnesota House, where we can change the legislative landscape in Minnesota if we pick up just 11 seats in the 2018 elections.
