The 2018 midterm elections on November 6 and the stakes couldn’t be higher. This election is the first time since 1978 that Minnesota’s entire U.S. Congressional delegation, the state House of Representatives, and the governor’s seat are ALL up for grabs. Here's what you need to know about how to vote in Minnesota.
Supreme Court Watch: Planned Parenthood Action Fund Condemns Confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court
With the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court, the right to safe, legal abortion in this country is in danger. States will now be the last and only line of defense against the Trump-Pence administration's relentless attempts to turn back the clock on reproductive rights. This is no time for despair; now is the time to act. We can not, and we will not, sit on the sidelines this November.
Erik Paulsen has voted with Trump 97% of the time and has made it clear he will rubber stamp the GOP’s anti-health equity, anti-abortion, anti-Planned Parenthood agenda if is re-elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. The choice this November is clear—a vote for Erik Paulsen is a vote against access to health care for millions of Minnesotans. That’s why it is critical to elect Dean Phillips to protect and expand health care access for all Minnesotans.
A full year after Republicans pulled the Graham-Cassidy-Heller health care bill from the Senate floor, because their disastrous bill could not get the necessary votes to allow them to gut protections for pre-existing conditions and strip health care from millions of Americans, Republicans still aren't telling the truth about protecting people who have pre-existing conditions.
President Trump’s namesake is visiting Minnesota to fundraise for Rep. Jason Lewis and Rep. Erik Paulsen, two of the state’s most-anti women’s health Republicans. Paulsen and Lewis have helped the administration do whatever it wants — even when it’s not at what Minnesotans want. For nearly two years, the Trump-Pence administration has ruthlessly attacked our health and rights, and Rep. Paulsen and Rep. Lewis have supported its entire agenda.
From the Trump-Pence administration’s relentless attacks to Title X to the Supreme Court, it is more important than ever that we elect pro-Planned Parenthood champions to the United States Congress who will stand up to these harmful policies at the Federal level and champions in the Minnesota State Legislature to the governor's office who will protect us here at home in Minnesota.
More than 100 people pledged to step up, fight back, and make their voice heard at the ballot box in ONE DAY—all because a few volunteers took the time to talk to their neighbors about the shared future we all deserve.
Planned Parenthood Federation of America today announced that Dr. Leana Wen will serve as its sixth president — the first time in nearly 50 years that a physician will helm the organization.
