CHOICE

I am pro-choice. Women have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness without the government’s intervention into our personal lives. And we have the right to self-determination and equal protection under the law. The right to self-determination includes the deeply personal decision of when to continue a pregnancy and when to end it.

I will work to ensure that every woman has access to the full range of reproductive health services without interference, including safe and legal medical and surgical abortion; affordable, long-lasting contraception; and comprehensive, politics-free sex education to help women and men make informed decisions. I will also work to provide better support to women who do start families, including improving parental leave policies and making childcare more affordable for all.
