Planned Parenthood Advocates of Michigan is the voice of Michigan Planned Parenthood and patients. As part of our commitment to ensuring women and families have the quality, affordable health care they deserve, we publish endorsement guides each year.
Our endorsement guides are based on information we gather about candidates running for elected office. We use candidate questionnaires to identify pro-choice candidates to endorse in the primary and general elections. We also consider voting records when evaluating incumbent endorsements.
Our election guide helps cut through the noise and give supporters the best options for candidates who will support family planning decisions with medically
accurate information, access to contraceptives, sex education, and safe, legal abortion.
More than 250 candidates have earned an endorsement or a favorable rating from Planned Parenthood Advocates of Michigan for their demonstrated dedication to protecting health care access for all people in Michigan.
In the 2018 August primary election, 90 percent of PPAM’s endorsed and favorably-rated candidates won their races, ultimately leading to a statewide Pink Wave in the 2018 General Election.
