Phoenix, AZ – Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona and Planned Parenthood Action Fund released the below statement following last night’s Senate Debate:
Statement from Jodi Liggett, Executive Director of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona:
Last night, Kyrsten Sinema proved herself to be the champion Arizonan women and girls need in the Senate. The choice is clear. Kyrsten Sinema is committed to ensuring Arizonans have health care coverage, protections for pre-existing conditions, and the freedom to make their own health care decisions without government interference.
“In sharp contrast, Martha McSally repeatedly misled viewers about her voting record. After voting last year to gut Medicaid, block access to care at Planned Parenthood health centers, and cut protections for people with pre-existing conditions, McSally has no business claiming to support Arizonans’ health care. Martha McSally wants to strip women in Arizona of their constitutional right to safe, legal abortion, and dodged multiple questions about overturning Roe. That’s why come November, Arizonans will leave Martha McSally’s out of touch policies behind.
Planned Parenthood Action Fund is an independent, nonpartisan, not-for-profit membership organization formed as the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. The Action Fund engages in educational and electoral activity, including voter education, grassroots organizing, and legislative advocacy.
Planned Parenthood‘s advocacy and political arm in Arizona, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona (PPAA), is the state’s largest nonpartisan advocacy organization dedicated to protecting access to women’s health care. PPAA is fighting for every woman’s freedom and right to make reproductive choices, enjoy sexual health and wellbeing, and build healthy, strong families.
