The Planned Parenthood Action Fund today launched a new Online Voter Education Guide and Scorecard to help voters determine where federal candidates and members of Congress stand on women’s health issues.

The online voter guide features an interactive map of the United States that enables users to click on a state and see the list of candidates running for Congress, as well as their positions on women’s health issues, including access to sex education, birth control and abortion. The map also highlights which candidates have received an endorsement from the Planned Parenthood Action Fund.

“The Planned Parenthood Action Fund is a trusted messenger to an important and influential demographic in this election: independent women,” said Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund. “The online voter guide is an easy-to-use webpage that invites voters to learn about candidates, get information about women’s health issues, and decide whom to vote for in the upcoming midterm elections.” 
The Online Voter Education Guide is part of the aggressive voter mobilization effort the Planned Parenthood Action Fund is launching to educate undecided voters across the country about the stark differences in the candidates’ positions on women’s health issues.

“Independent women often play a decisive role in close elections in swing districts and swing states,” said Richards. “While the economy is certainly the top issue in the midterm elections, the Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s endorsement serves as a clear-cut way for women to distinguish who is on their side and who is not when it comes to women’s health.”

The Online Voter Education Guide also details the Planned Parenthood Action Fund Scorecard, which gives a ranking to members of Congress based on their votes on women’s health issues. These issues include:  

- Abortion Access for Women in the Military 
- International Access to Contraceptives and Condoms
- Teen Health and Safety 
- Attacks on Planned Parenthood 
- Abortion Access in Health Care Reform 
- Abortion Access for Women in the District of Columbia 
- Mandating Abstinence-Only Sex Education Abroad

The strength of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund is in its grassroots efforts, which mobilize millions of supporters around the country and across the political spectrum. In the weeks leading up to the election, the Planned Parenthood Action Fund will reach likely voters using phone banks, paid ads, e-mails, posts on Facebook and other social media sites, and door-to-door canvassing to educate voters on the sharp contrasts and clear choices between the candidates who truly stand up for women’s health and those who simply play politics.
