Reproductive Justice

I have always been a 100% supporter of a woman’s right to choose, and I will work tirelessly to defend Planned Parenthood from its attackers and fight to expand its funding so that it can continue to provide healthcare to women across the country. Support for Planned Parenthood isn’t just about abortion—it’s about healthcare, period. Millions of women depend on Planned Parenthood for regular check ups, birth control, maternity care, and more. When women lack access to these healthcare essentials, our whole society suffers as a result. I won’t let that happen.

As a State Representative, I helped to create the Progressive Women’s Caucus, which exists to this day to elect pro-choice women to the legislature. I traveled around Michigan recruiting pro-choice women leaders to run for office, and I helped to create a Lansing institution that would last beyond my term limits. I was a leader on the issue of reproductive justice because I knew Michigan women needed someone to fight for them in Lansing. In Washington, I’ll fight for reproductive justice for every single American.
