Statement from Candace Fowler, Board Chair, Planned Parenthood Southeast Advocates

“The stakes could not be higher this November'', says Candace Fowler, Board Chair of Planned Parenthood Southeast Advocates. “At a time when right-wing extremists are attacking reproductive rights like never before, Georgia needs champions who will do the work to fortify access to sexual and reproductive health care and protect bodily autonomy. We know, without a doubt, that these candidates, if elected, will bring the full strength of their support to this fight. We are proud to stand behind each one of these candidates to do what’s required to protect abortion rights and everyone’s ability to access essential health care”.


Statement from Jen Jordan, Candidate for Attorney General of Georgia:

"As Republicans have implemented one of the most draconian abortion bans in the country here in Georgia, it’s critical that we have statewide leaders who will stand up for every Georgian’s right to bodily autonomy. As Georgia's next Attorney General, I will proudly stand as the last line of defense against attacks on our fundamental freedoms. I am honored to have the endorsement of Planned Parenthood Southeast Advocates at this pivotal time for the future of the reproductive justice movement."


Statement from Bee Nguyen, Candidate for Georgia Secretary of State:

"The recent attacks on abortion access remind us of the fragility of our freedom. Republicans continue to roll back our fundamental rights — and now, unrestrained by Supreme Court precedent. The most powerful way to stop the assault on our bodily autonomy and our right to privacy is to ensure that the voices of Georgians are heard at the ballot box.

"People deserve an equitable and inclusive democracy. As Georgia's next Secretary of State, I will continue to lead the charge on strengthening our election system while defending and expanding the right to vote. I am grateful to earn the endorsement of Planned Parenthood Southeast Advocates in our effort to bring true leadership to Georgia."


As the organizing, advocacy, and electoral arm of Planned Parenthood Southeast, Planned Parenthood Southeast Advocates (PPSEA) engages in electoral activities including voter education and mobilization. We believe elected officials should support policies and programs that help women and their families make responsible choices about the prevention of unintended pregnancies and plan for healthy families. PPSEA works to educate and mobilize the public and elect lawmakers who support these policies.
