~Advocates of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region and Southeast Missouri
Sam is honored to be endorsed by Planned Parenthood!
As a doctor, he knows how important medical care is - and how terrifying it is when it's needed but not available. Every person - regardless of income, race, gender, or sexual orientation - has the right to reproductive health services, and the freedom to control their own bodies, genders, sexuality, and lives as they see fit.
Abortion should be safe, legal and accessible to all. And overall access to healthcare will improve health outcomes for all, which is why Sam has fought to expand Medicaid in the state for the last 14 years, dating back to his time as a State Representative.
Sam's record - as a State Representative, County Councilman and now as County Executive - shows that he's always been willing to do the hard work that's required to further reproductive freedom and overall access to healthcare.
He will continue to to do, proudly.
He is so grateful for Planned Parenthood's support.
