By affecting policy makers through electoral and non-electoral activities, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Michigan (PPAM) works every day to protect and enhance the ability of Planned Parenthood to deliver reproductive healthcare services in our state. We base our endorsements on voting records for incumbent candidates as well as a comprehensive candidate questionnaire.
About Our Endorsements
- PPAM does not make endorsements or issue “meets criteria” status unless the candidate has a 100% favorable questionnaire or voting record.
- PPAM will give endorsement preference to incumbents with a 100% favorable voting record.
- No candidate who does not have a voting record shall receive an endorsement without filing out a questionnaire.
- A general election Endorsement Guide will be released in August. Candidates who would like to be considered for an endorsement should visit MiPlannedParenthood.org/endorsements.

National Endorsements are made by Planned Parenthood Action Fund
Access to Safe and Legal Abortion

Birth Control Access
Michigan Planned Parenthood Votes believes every woman should have access to birth control without a copay, because it’s basic preventive care.
The Affordable Care ActMichigan Planned Parenthood Votes believes that all women and their families should have access to affordable health insurance.
Comprehensive Sex Education
Michigan Planned Parenthood Votes believes that Americans need to know how to make responsible decisions and stay healthy.
We’ve had enough of politicians who ignore the majority — the voices of citizens, voters, and medical and public health professionals.
We are fighting to stop legislation that claims to be about protecting women’s health and safety, but takes away access to safe health care – and, if they won’t listen, we will take it to the ballot box.
We’re determined to elect women’s health champions who will stand with us, and get rid of out-of-touch politicians who have been forcing their own ideological agendas on millions of Americans. We’re voting, we’re fighting back, and we will win.
We’re ready for this fight — and you can count me in.
Your gift will help Michigan Planned Parenthood Votes win elections, protect reproductive healthcare and advance women’s health in Michigan.
