Women’s Health

As the only pro-choice woman doctor in all of Congress, I will always support a woman’s right to choose. I trust women to make their own personal decisions about health and family planning, in consultation with their doctors. I have voted twice now to pass the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would codify Roe v. Wade into law. Now that Republican politicians in DC want to pass a national ban on abortion that would take effect even here in Washington – without exceptions for rape, incest, or instances in which the life of the mother is at risk – Congress must take action to protect a woman’s right to choose.
