Planned Parenthood Great Plains Votes is proud to endorse Lauren Arthur to represent Missouri’s 17th Senate District. Here are a few reasons why Lauren has our vote:
- Lauren Arthur is a former middle school teacher who has represented North Kansas City in Jefferson City since 2015.
- During her time in the Missouri Legislature she has been an outspoken champion for Planned Parenthood patients and staff, holding a 100% pro-choice voting record
- In 2017, Arthur sponsored HB 1173, a bill that would repeal TRAP laws designed to restrict access to abortion with no health benefits
- Arthur’s opponent, Kevin Corlew, has consistently voted for policies that would put thousands of women who depend on Planned Parenthood’s health services at risk
