Reproductive Rights

In a perfect world, abortion would not be a political issue. Everyone has a right to bodily autonomy, and unfortunately there is still much work to be done to ensure that women have that right.

If we feel strongly about reducing the number of unwanted pregnancies and abortions, I believe we need to look at our healthcare and education. Better access to healthcare and contraceptives should be provided to all Americans and should be the decision of each individual, not their employer, legislator, or based on where they live. I am proud of the work our local schools, PTA and community members are doing to increase our sex ed curriculum with programs like The Consent Event.
