Rep. Schakowsky Responds to Dold's Election-year Maneuver on Woman's Health

Press Release

Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky responded to Congressman Robert Dold playing partisan politics with women's health care. Congresswoman Schakowsky released a statement about Dold's record on issues important to women:

"Access to care for women should be above partisan politics. This is one of the most transparent election-year ploys I've ever seen and women in Illinois aren't going to be fooled. This maneuver is trying to accomplish one thing and one thing only -- hide Rep. Dold's record of voting against women. If Dold truly is the pro-choice moderate he claims, he wouldn't have voted to cut Planned Parenthood funding and he certainly wouldn't have voted for the Let the Women Die Act."

Congressman Dold is facing a difficult reelection against pro-choice Democrat Brad Schneider who has continued to reiterate his support for women's access to health care:

"We need people in Congress who will always stand strong, speak with a powerful voice, and consistently lead in the fight to protect the rights of women. Congressman Dold is simply not that person" said Brad Schneider. I am proud to be 100% pro-choice and always have been. In Congress, I will be a consistent and staunch advocate for the women and families of Illinois 10th district, not just in a tough election year, but every year, every day" added Schneider.
