Reproductive Rights

It is essential that all women, regardless of income level, have access to family planning resources. Access to contraceptives and reproductive health care are proven to reduce health costs for both the individual and the health care system as a whole, as well as reduce the number of unplanned pregnancies and abortions.  I will continue to be an outspoken voice to ensure that women are able to access the reproductive healthcare they need. As a member of the Congressional Pro-Choice Caucus, I am committed to working for the rights of women to choose their own healthcare and method of family planning.

Rep. Suzanne Bonamici published a six-part Twitter thread wherein she called on the Senate to “stop the hypocrisy, oppose this [nomination].” “Donald Trump has pledged to appoint Supreme Court justices who will overturn #RoeVWade, and Amy Coney Barrett has made clear that, in her opinion, a justice can overturn established precedent if it conflicts with their understanding of the Constitution,” said Bonamici in the thread.

Secretary DeVos and the US Department of Education should be helping students, families, educators, and schools deal with a pandemic of unprecedented proportion; instead, they have just released a new Title IX rule that will reduce protections for sexual assault survivors and create inconsistent standards at schools and college campuses across America. This is unacceptable.
