Jenny Lawson, executive director, Planned Parenthood Votes, issued a statement on the results of last night’s primaries:

“Last week’s overwhelming defeat of the Kansas ballot referendum showed what we’ve always known to be true: abortion access is a winning political issue. Last night’s results in Minnesota and Wisconsin remind us how much is on the line this election cycle, and why we must keep the momentum going. Voters have an opportunity to decide which future they want: one where fringe politicians override the will of the people to push their political agenda, or one where their elected officials fight to protect their right to reproductive health care, including abortion. With the match-ups now set, Planned Parenthood advocacy and political organizations will ensure that voters know which candidates respect the right of individuals to make health care decisions for themselves and which will strip them of their reproductive rights.”

When the Supreme Court overturned Roe v Wade, abortion providers in Wisconsin— where a 173-year-old total abortion ban remains on the books — were forced to halt services, leaving patients with few options but to travel for care. The Governor and Attorney General have filed a lawsuit challenging the state’s 1849 criminal abortion ban.


Planned Parenthood Votes is an independent expenditure political committee registered with the Federal Election Commission.
