I’ll always support a woman’s right to choose, which starts by codifying Roe v. Wade to ensure a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions is the law of the land. I’ll also always protect funding for health care clinics like Planned Parenthood, ensuring all women have access to affordable contraception and fight back against GOP attempts to restrict a women’s right to choose.
Violence Against Women Act
Domestic violence and sexual assault is an unimaginable horror, yet devastating reality for far too many in our country. Unfortunately, there are still far too many who don’t believe, or worse, blame the survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, instead of offering support and swift prosecution of the abusers. As a community, we must do everything we can to stand and support survivors and families during these unimaginable traumas. That means fixing our institutions to better respond to instances of sexual assault and support survivors as well as ensuring clear parameters and procedures are in place to investigate and deal with instances.
- Pass the Violence Against Women Act
- Codify Roe V Wade to ensure it is the law of the land and protect every woman’s right to make her own health care decisions
- Fully fund red-flag laws
