State Rep. Sheryl Kennedy, Democratic Incumbent

Endorsed by Planned Parenthood Advocates of Michigan

State Rep. Sheryl Kennedy is a champion for health care access and reproductive rights. In the state legislature, Kennedy co-sponsored a groundbreaking package of legislation called the Reproductive Health Act. If enacted, the RHA would ensure all Michiganders can make personal decisions regarding their health and pregnancies without interference from anti-choice politicians.


State Rep. Sheryl Kennedy has also fought to restore the MI Paid Leave Act to ensure working families can access paid sick leave to care for themselves and their families.


You can trust State Rep. Sheryl Kennedy to:

  • Protect and expand access to health care

  • Stand with Planned Parenthood patients and health centers

  • Fight back against attacks on reproductive rights and access to safe, legal abortion

  • Support accurate, comprehensive sex education programs for young Michiganders

  • Support measures that increase access to domestic violence assistance, adequate wages, earned paid leave time, safe homes and more

David Martin, Republican Challenger

David Martin’s dangerous agenda would 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.


David Martin is endorsed by the extreme anti-abortion group Right to Life of Michigan and supports efforts to ban abortion and defund Planned Parenthood, cutting off access to essential reproductive health care.
