Mike Tipping will advocate for access to medical care

It seems like every week we hear stories of across our country state legislatures enacting laws to limit the rights of their citizens to access safe, affordable and necessary medical care. The ability to obtain standard reproductive care or gender-affirming care is no longer based on what is best and medically necessary for the patient, but now depends on the ideology of those in power in the state in which they live. The ramifications of how these laws affect people’s daily health and well-being will be enormous. As a local pediatrician, I see the consequences of patients not having access to the medical care they need on a daily basis.

I am voting for Mike Tipping to represent Maine State Legislature District 8 because he understands the health crises that many Maine families face every day. Tipping has been a strong advocate of expand access to health care in Maine and supporting those who provide this essential care. As a parent and healthcare provider, I trust Mike Tipping to continue to advocate for the health and well-being of all Mainers.
