Do You Know Who You're Voting For?

Reproductive health care is under attack and abortion access is at risk across the country. If politicians don’t stand with us on access to safe and legal abortion, affordable birth control, or health care equity—then they don’t deserve to represent us.

Now is the time to hold politicians accountable and elect leaders who will fight with us. It’s up to us to take back the power from those who are intent on dividing us and elect reproductive health champions who will fight to protect our health, rights, and communities.

Learn about candidates who are endorsed by the Planned Parenthood Action Fund and vote for reproductive health champions on November 6.

Pledge to Vote For Local Reproductive Health Champions

Minnesota voters won’t stand by as our elected officials continue to vote against the majority of Minnesotans by restricting access to reproductive healthcare. Minnesota legislators up for reelection have been taking more and more extreme positions, alienating themselves from the vast majority of Minnesotans who -- poll after poll shows -- want to see women have access to reproductive healthcare.

Safe, Legal Abortion

As Governor, Pawlenty enacted several severe anti-abortion laws that interfere directly in the relationship between women and their doctor. During his first year in office, Pawlenty signed the Woman’s Right to Know Act, requiring a 24 hour waiting period and “informed consent” which forces providers to give women false information linking abortion and breast cancer.

Health Care Access

During his time in office, Pawlenty undermined the health of Minnesota women and families, slashed health care coverage that Minnesotans relied on, and even cut funding for children and seniors—all while the number of uninsured Minnesotans increased by 50 percent.

Funding for Planned Parenthood

Pawlenty would put Planned Parenthood’s patients at serious risk if elected. When he ran for President, he said that Planned Parenthood’s federal funding “should come to an end.” Not only would this limit Minnesotans' access to cancer screenings and contraception, it puts Pawlenty wildly out of step with most Minnesotans who believe that funding for reproductive health care should be protected and that abortion should remain safe and legal.

We're taking names.

We're under fire and fired up. We won't stand by as politicians continue to attack reproductive rights. Instead, we'll keep marching, calling, and voting.

Join our universe of Action Takers and Change Makers. Together, we will fight against attempts to roll back reproductive rights, hold our elected officials accountable for their actions, and ensure that we get out the vote for our champions in November.

Sign our pledge to resist, persist, and vote to protect reproductive rights for all Minnesotans.
