Issue Position: Preventing the Need for Abortions

Issue Position

Location: Unknown

Congressman Tim Ryan and Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (CT-3) have taken the tug-of-war debate on abortion to a completely different level: taking the necessary measures to reduce the need for abortion. It's not the traditional pro-life stance, and it's not the traditional pro-choice stance. The aim is to prevent the need for females to even have an abortion. Prevention measures include sex education, funding for contraceptives and increased funding for programs that assist new mothers. This $647 million dollar package is a critical investment for our families in America.

With plenty of support on Capitol Hill, and a reiteration by President Obama in his address to the 2009 graduating class of Notre Dame, Tim has exhibited the leadership it takes to start, and successfully implement, a completely new school of thought.
