The Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota Action Fund is proud to endorse Tim Walz for Governor and Peggy Flanagan for Lieutenant Governor.
Tim Walz and Peggy Flanagan have been among Planned Parenthood’s most outspoken and passionate supporters.
Tim Walz has supported the role that Planned Parenthood clinics play in making sure all Minnesotans can access health care and he has said that Planned Parenthood serves as the primary source of health care for many of his rural constituents.
In Congress, he has consistently voted against restricting a woman’s constitutional right to abortion and he has voted against defunding Planned Parenthood. He also helped save the Affordable Care Act, which is responsible for bringing Minnesota’s uninsured rate to the lowest level in history.
Peggy Flanagan has been a consistent and effective champion for reproductive rights in the Minnesota Legislature, voting against numerous bills that would have restricted a woman’s constitutional right to an abortion and working to expand access to birth control.
We congratulate Tim Walz and Peggy Flanagan on their primary win and look forward to working with them on protecting and promoting reproductive rights in Minnesota.
Resist, Persist, Vote
The stakes for reproductive health care have never been higher. Pledge to vote for reproductive health champions like Tim Walz, Peggy Flanagan in November. We can’t afford to sit this one out.
