The Planned Parenthood Illinois Action (PPIA) board of directors on Wednesday announced its final endorsements for the November general election.

The organization said that candidates were selected based on their reproductive health care policies and their commitment to protecting the health and rights of all Illinoisans. The full list of endorsements and more information is available at

“All freedoms are on the ballot this November. With a right-wing activist federal court in power, we are supporting these candidates who are champions of reproductive freedom and will protect people’s right to decide what is best for themselves and their families,” said Kelley Foxx, PPIA board chair. “As more and more legislatures strip away abortion rights in surrounding states, it is critical to vote for candidates who will uphold Illinois’ position as a haven state for abortion in the Midwest.”
