Our health and rights are on the line. It's critical that we elect leaders who will work to expand access to health care, not attack it. Learn more about where Michigan's 6th Congressional District candidates stand on health care and reproductive rights before you turn in your ballot for the November 3rd General Election.
Jon Hoadley, Democratic Challenger
Endorsed by Planned Parenthood Action Fund
Jon Hoadley is a proven leader who has worked tirelessly to expand access to health care, support working families, and protect our rights. Jon Hoadley knows it’s becoming harder and harder for working people to afford health care and build a future for our families. In congress, he’ll fight to ensure we can all afford the high-quality health care we deserve, no matter where you live, how much you make, or the color of your skin.
“I am committed to fighting for any and all health care policy that holds pharmaceutical companies accountable for responsible drug prices, that provides better care to our children and families including in rural settings, and that promotes the principle that healthcare is a human right.”
Jon Hoadley is also a champion for reproductive health and rights. You can count on him to stand up for Planned Parenthood patients and all Michiganders who need reproductive health care.
“I support a woman’s right to make decisions about her own body. I support Roe v Wade. If elected I will continue to protect a woman’s right to choose as I have done my entire career. I believe we must reinstate Title X funding to Planned Parenthood so they can continue to provide quality low-cost healthcare and reproductive health services to every American. Additionally, we must repeal the Hyde Amendment to end the stratification of federally-funded reproductive healthcare based on income.”
Fred Upton, Republican Incumbent
Rep. Fred Upton is an extreme politician who is completely out of touch with the lives of Michiganders. He has put politics over people, making it even harder for Michiganders to access the care we need to live healthy, full lives and take care of our families.
Rep. Fred Upton has voted to:
Repeal the Affordable Care Act
Pass extreme abortion bans
Defund Planned Parenthood
Cut off access to affordable birth control
Ban same-sex marriage
Fred Upton has spent his time in congress attacking our health and rights. We can’t let him continue any longer.
