Planned Parenthood, the nation's leading provider of reproductive health care and an organization that advocates for abortion rights, has announced that it intends to spend a record $50 million prior to the midterm elections in November, pouring money into contests where candidates' stances on access to abortion will be on the ballot.
Roe v. Wade
This campaign, which comes roughly two months after the Supreme Court overruled Roe v. Wade, the historic 1973 ruling that guaranteed a constitutional right to have an abortion and set a new record spending amount of $45 million in 2020, smashes the previous record spending amount set by the organization in 2020.
It will be conducted by the organization's political and advocacy arms, and it will concentrate on governor's offices, U.S. Senate seats, and legislative contests in nine states where the result of the referendum may either limit or extend abortion rights.
Planned Parenthood claims that the money it spends will assist remind voters in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin what's at stake in an effort to increase voter participation among Democratic and independent voters.
“Who wins in these midterm elections will determine whether a state has access to abortion and potentially determine whether we will face a national abortion ban,” said Jenny Lawson, the executive director of Planned Parenthood Votes. “We will be clear about who is on which side.”
