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.
