In the wake of Amy Coney Barrett's rushed appointment to the Supreme Court, which happened, for the first time in 151 years, with zero votes in favor from the minority party, Planned Parenthood has launched a new ad campaign to emphasize the importance of voting in this election. "We Need Every Voice" is running as a full-page ad in the newspapers of six key states for next week's election, including the Arizona Republic, Detroit Free Press, Tampa Bay Times, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Austin American Statesman, and Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

"Everything is on the line with this election," Planned Parenthood Action Fund President Alexis McGill Johnson says. "Voters across the country understand that we need leaders who will fight to protect our rights and access to health care in every branch of government - that's why tens of millions of Americans have already cast their ballots by mail or in person in states with early voting. As we face a Supreme Court that now poses an even greater threat to people's health care access and reproductive rights, we know there is power in exercising our right to vote. We are proud to partner with musicians for 'We Need Every Voice' to mobilize more people to use their voices and their votes to help elect leaders that will protect our futures, our health, our rights and our freedoms."
