Washington, D.C. — We’re in the middle of primary election season, and while we don’t know who will win in many of the remaining races, one thing is clear: Candidates across the country are making abortion rights a central part of their campaigns. With the Supreme Court poised to overturn Roe v. Wade — which could put abortion access out of reach for 36 million women and other people who can become pregnant — abortion was already one of the top issues driving the 2022 midterms. But many candidates are going above and beyond because they know that supporting abortion rights is not only the right thing to do, but also a winning political strategy.

Statement from Jenny Lawson, executive director, Planned Parenthood Votes:

“This is not a drill: Our right and access to abortion are on the line, and this election cycle could have dire consequences. Abortion rights champions understand the stakes and are prepared to meet the moment. They’re talking about abortion on the campaign trail, drawing the indisputable contrast between themselves and their anti-abortion opponents, and making abortion rights a central part of their agendas. Candidates are taking a stand and, in November, the voters will stand with the champions who vowed to protect their health and rights.”
