Washington, DC -- The Associated Press announced that voters in Colorado reelected Michael Bennett to be their next U.S. Senator. It’s clear that women’s health and rights are front and center in the eyes of the Colorado voters, and that they demand their elected officials support and protect them.

The Planned Parenthood Action Fund endorsed Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO). Senator Bennet has worked to improve access to quality health care, especially reproductive health care for women; protect a woman’s right to choose; and invest in prevention programs, including family planning services and lifesaving breast cancer screenings. 

Quote from Cecile Richards, President, Planned Parenthood Action Fund:

“Congratulations to Michael Bennett on his reelection to the U.S, Senate. Michael Bennet has been a passionate advocate for women and women’s reproductive rights, and has made it a priority to promote and protect women’s health. Tonight, we celebrate Michael Bennet’s victory. And tomorrow, we get to work on fighting to confirm a Supreme Court justice, fighting for equal pay, and protecting our access to reproductive health care.”


Statement from Sarah Taylor-Nanista, Executive Director of Planned Parenthood Votes Colorado:

“Congratulations to Michael Bennett. It’s clear that voters in Colorado want a champion of women’s health as their senator. That champion is Michael Bennet.  We look forward to working with Michael Bennett to expand access to reproductive health care and rights for Coloradans.” 

Planned Parenthood Action Fund mobilized its members to volunteer for the Hillary for America and Michael Bennett campaigns, completing 91 campaign shifts in Colorado. In addition, the Action Fund held 37 grassroots membership events and meetings with the campaigns in Colorado. 

Cecile Richards made 4 trips to Colorado over the last year as well, speaking to fellow volunteers, college students, women, men and young people at 10 separate events like canvass kickoffs and rallies on college campuses across Colorado outlining the stakes for reproductive health and rights and access to Planned Parenthood health centers.
