Planned Parenthood Advocates of Montana PAC Launches Voter Outreach

Program expects to reach more than 86,000 Montanans this election cycle

 

BILLINGS – Planned Parenthood Advocates of Montana PAC has launched its 2016 voter outreach and engagement program in Yellowstone and Missoula County. Planned Parenthood Advocates of Montana staff and volunteers are talking with voters across Montana about what is at stake for women’s health this election. The group will knock on more than 86,000 doors, make thousands of phone calls and be talking to our neighbors throughout the fall to make sure Montanans know which candidates, at all levels of office from Governor to the Montana Legislature, stand with women’s health.

“The stakes in this election could not be higher and the choices are clear,” said Laura Terrill, VP of External Affairs for Planned Parenthood Advocates of Montana PAC. “We will work tirelessly to educate voters about which candidates support access to reproductive health care and medically accurate sexual health education and which ones want to turn back the clock on women.”

Governor Steve Bullock and Lt. Governor Mike Cooney proudly stand with Montana women and Planned Parenthood. Governor Bullock will work to ensure all people across Montana, including rural families, have access to a full range of health care services. His opponent refuses to tell Montanans he won’t defund Planned Parenthood in our state, a move that would leave tens of thousands of Montana women and men without a center of care.

For the State Supreme Court, PPAMT PAC proudly endorses District judge Dirk Sandefur. Sandefur will call on his previous judicial experience to protect the rights of all Montanans to make private health care decisions. His opponent, Kristen Juras, does not have any judicial experience and has stated that it is her personal belief that women should not be in control of their reproductive rights.
