David Garcia For Governor .jpg

David Garcia
For Governor

“In recent years, Republicans in the state Legislature have been relentless in their assault on women’s health, spending millions of taxpayer dollars on failed attempts to close any health facility associated with Planned Parenthood. They voted to defund Planned Parenthood health services, putting cancer exams and affordable birth control at risk for thousands of Arizona women. That will all change when I win this election, and I look forward to working alongside Planned Parenthood to enact policies that support Arizona’s women, families, and, ultimately, the state as a whole.”

January Contreras.jpg

January Contreras
For Attorney General

“Every woman has the right to make her own reproductive choices under our Constitution, and when Arizona’s elected officials show indifference to this constitutional right, they are reiterating their belief that liberty and privacy don’t count for women. It’s unacceptable not only because these actions trample all over the Constitution, but also because it’s a misuse of taxpayer funds to pursue litigation that is legally indefensible. The attorney general should be committed to upholding the Constitution and protecting the rights of all Arizonans.”

- January Contreras (source: Advocatesaz.org)

  • Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund of Arizona

  • Emily’s List

  • Other organizations that support her Democratic ideals


KatieHobbs.jpg

Katie Hobbs
For Secretary of State

“We have done some good things for women’s health care. This past year, we passed a bill that will help more women diagnosed with breast cancer have access to treatment. Unfortunately, you can’t separate reproductive health care from women’s health and that’s just what the legislature has tried to do. They have passed legislation (which I fought against!) that severely compromises women’s health by restricting access to family planning, cancer screenings, preventive care, and safe and legal abortion. …making women’s reproductive health care accessible, affordable, and safe should be a top priority of the legislature.”

- Katie Hobbs (source: Advocatesaz.org)

She has been endorsed by:

  • Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund of Arizona

  • Arizona List
