2016 Election Endorsements

Planned Parenthood’s political action committee in Maine is proud to endorse pro-women’s health candidates for the Maine Legislature this year. It is critical that Maine voters know where the candidates stand on women’s health issues and we are pleased to endorse leaders who share our belief that private medical decisions should be left to a woman, her family and her doctor – not a politician. The 128th Legislature will decide the direction of our state and determine whether we move forward or turn back the clock on issues important to the lives of Maine women and families.

Maine leaders will decide:

  • The future of funding for women’s health care
  • If the state protects access to life saving cancer screening, disease testing and treatment, and birth control for thousands of low-income people through an expanded benefit in MaineCare
  • If the state will accept federal funds to provide essential health care to more than 65,000 low-income adults
  • How to ensure patients seeking reproductive health care are able to receive care safely, free of harassment and intimidation from protestors and practitioners are able to provide these services safely
  • If Maine will maintain its common sense laws ensuring that women are able to make informed decisions when it comes to her own pregnancy
