I believe fundamentally in a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions. The decision to end a pregnancy is one between a woman and her doctor. My hope is that abortions will always be safe, legal, and rare, and I will stand up to extremists in Congress who want to restrict women's rights.
I will be a staunch defender of equality not just on this issue, but also on the issues of equal pay and maternity leave. It’s 2016- it’s time for women to earn the same wages as men for the same work, and it’s time to join the rest of the developed world in guaranteeing paid maternity leave. The US military doesn't pay women less than men for doing the same job, and corporations shouldn't be allowed to either.
