Planned Parenthood Advocates of Michigan 2023 Election Guide
Planned Parenthood Advocates of Michigan (PPAM) is the advocacy arm of Planned Parenthood in Michigan. As part of our commitment to ensuring all people in Michigan have access to the quality, affordable health care and sexual health information they need and deserve, we are proud to share our 2023 General Election Guide. Use this guide to identify candidates on your ballot that have earned our 2023 Sexual and Reproductive Health Champion seal of approval.
This guide is based on responses to our candidate questionnaire, along with voting records for incumbent candidates. We reach out to all candidates and request their responses in order to identify Sexual and Reproductive Health Champions in Michigan for endorsement in Primary and General Elections.
Planned Parenthood believes that sexual and reproductive health rights are basic human rights. We believe that access to health care shouldn’t depend on who you are or where you live. And we believe every person should have the opportunity to choose their own path to a healthy, meaningful life. We believe that every person—regardless of income, age, race, or marital status—has the fundamental right to decide if, when and how to have a child. It is government’s role to support personal childbearing decisions with medically-accurate reproductive health information, including sex education, access to contraceptives, and safe, legal abortion.
