Planned Parenthood Great Plains Votes is proud to endorse Hillary Shields to represent Missouri’s 8th Senate District. Here are a few reasons why Hillary has our vote:
- Hillary is a Planned Parenthood patient who also champions sexual and reproductive health care.
- She was one of the co-founding members of the Kansas City chapter of Indivisible, a volunteer organization dedicated to holding elected officials accountable for their votes, statements, and actions through grassroots engagement.
- Hillary’s decision to take her activism to the next step and challenge for this seat comes at a critical time for Missouri women and families because an anti-choice supermajority controls the state legislature with a Governor who rubberstamps the most ideologically extreme bills that come to his desk.
- Hillary’s opponent, Mike Cierpiot, has consistently voted for bad policy, putting thousands of women who depend on Planned Parenthood for care at risk.
This is a crucial race, not just for the 8th district, but for Planned Parenthood patients and supporters across Missouri. Regardless of where you live, you can help.
