A Strong, Pro-Choice Candidate
A woman’s right to choose and govern her own body is a fundamental human right. As representative of District 12, I will fight for freedom of choice for all women and will vigorously oppose any legislation that infringes upon this right. No exceptions. No compromises.
As a candidate and a citizen, I support H.R. 771 – Equal Access to Abortion Coverage in Health Insurance (EACH Woman) Act of 2017. This bill requires the federal government to ensure coverage for abortion care in public health insurance programs including Medicare, Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (C.H.I.P.). It further ensures that health plan sponsors provide abortion care coverage for participants and beneficiaries and that abortion care is made available to individuals who are eligible to receive services. The bill also mandates the federal government may not prohibit, restrict or otherwise inhibit insurance coverage of abortion care by state or local governments or by private health care plans. State and local governments may not prohibit, restrict, or otherwise inhibit insurance coverage of abortion care by private health plans.
