In the face of partisan attacks on the right to choose and with states across the country passing restrictive abortion bans in an effort to undermine and ultimately overturn Roe v. Wade, it’s more important than ever to elect leaders who will always protect a person’s right to make their own health care decisions.
“We’ve seen Republicans in Washington attack access to health care and reproductive rights again and again over the past few years. We need leaders who listen to us, pay attention to research and science, and work to expand access to care – not restrict it. That’s the kind of champion Sara Gideon is and it’s why I’m proud to support her. “
– Julie Jenkins, NP, Belfast, Maine
Sara is a strong and vocal advocate for protecting and expanding access to reproductive care. In Maine, Sara led the legislature to pass laws ensuring that every Mainer — no matter their income level or where they live in the state — has affordable access to reproductive care. Decisions about health care should always be made between a person, their family, and their health care provider, and Sara will always fight to protect that right.
In the Senate, Sara will fight back against any attempts to attack or defund Planned Parenthood, and will work to roll back the dangerous Title X gag rule, which has impacted Maine Family Planning and Planned Parenthood clinics that provide comprehensive health care to Mainers in rural communities and across the state. Sara will also work to put an end to the Senate confirming judicial nominees with dangerous anti-choice records to courts across the country — including to the Supreme Court.
Sara is proud to be endorsed by Planned Parenthood Action Fund and NARAL.
