The right to decide when and whether to reproduce will NOT be infringed. Like men, women have and will continue to have the right to make decisions about their bodies. Gone will be the days when the government makes personal reproductive decisions for their citizens while simultaneously claiming that the government has too much power. No law should allow insurers to decide whether contraception should be covered by health insurance or strip away access to abortions from those who are covered by government healthcare plans. Abortion clinics should not be so heavily regulated that they cannot afford to stay open nor so few and far between that only certain populations have true access to abortion services.
I will fight to ensure that Planned Parenthood, an organization that provides affordable contraception, breast and cervical cancer screenings, STD screenings, medication, vaccinations, pregnancy services, and general healthcare, is not defunded.
