Mark Begich (D)

A longtime women’s health champion who stands up for Planned Parenthood patients.

Begich is a champion for reproductive health and rights, and Planned Parenthood Votes is proud to support his run for Governor of Alaska. As we lead the charge against attacks on health care access and reproductive rights, we know Begich will stand strong in his leadership on important issues for women and families.

- Jessica Cler, Alaska Public Affairs Manager, PPVNH

The difference between the candidates for Governor could not be more clear: Begich respects women to make their own health care decisions and will advance policies to move Alaska women and families forward. On the other hand, Governor Bill Walker has shown he will pick and choose when he will stand up for health care access. He has declared his anti-choice beliefs and taken action to chip away at abortion access. State Senator Mike Dunleavy is committed to eliminating Planned Parenthood, has compared Planned Parenthood to the Ku Klux Klan, wouldn’t denounce a candidate to replace him who compared women to dogs, and will decide what Alaska women do with their bodies.
