I am pro-choice. A woman’s health decisions should be between her and her doctor. The federal government should have on when, how, and with whom women decide to start or grow a family.
Donald Trump and Congressman Frelinghuysen see things differently. They are leading an all-out assault on women’s health care, working to restrict access to abortion and contraception. This is dangerous and wrong.
In New Jersey, we know first-hand the devastating impact of Governor Christie’s cuts to women’s health care. From 2009 to 2012 there was a 31 percent drop in clinical breast exams provided at Title X health centers and rates of STD infection increased 27 percent. We can’t allow President Trump and Congressman Frelinghuysen to jeopardize women’s health care.
In Congress, I will be a forceful voice against efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, restrict access to birth control, and limit a woman’s access to safe family planning services.
