In the hopes that voters who are upset with Republican-led attempts to further limit access to abortion will make the difference in important races throughout the nation, Planned Parenthood will spend forty million dollars in advance of the elections in November in order to support President Joe Biden and senior congressional Democrats.

Before it was made public on Monday, the news was shared with The Associated Press by the political and advocacy branches of the nation's biggest reproductive healthcare provider and group that advocates for the rights of women to have abortions.

In the beginning, the organization will focus on eight states: Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, all of which are states in which Vice President Biden is attempting to defend victories from the 2020 election. Additionally, North Carolina, a state that the Democratic presidential campaign hopes to flip after Republican Donald Trump won it four years ago, as well as Montana, New Hampshire, and New York, all of which have races that could impact who controls the Senate and the House of Representatives.

The effort will reach out to voters via a variety of methods, including phone banking, digital, television, and postal advertising, as well as volunteer and paid canvassing initiatives.

"The message of this election will be about abortion, and it will be how we energize voters," said Jenny Lawson, executive director of Planned Parenthood Votes. "Abortion will be the message of this election." "It will be the factor that leads to our success."

During the election season, the organization did not have a record of expenditure on the proposal. It spent $45 million before to the campaign between Biden and Trump in 2020, and it spent $50 million prior to the midterm elections in 2022.
