Republicans and even some anti-choice Democrats in Congress have been waging a pitched battle against women's health care.
No fewer than 10 anti-women's health care bills were introduced in 2011 by anti-choice extremists in Congress. Whether it's their attempts to defund Planned Parenthood or block access to birth control, the assault of this GOP Congress on women's health care and the right to choose must be stopped.
That's one important reason I'm running for Congress. I'm proudly pro-choice. As an Emergency Room doctor, I'm ready to be a strong advocate for better health care services for women of all ages.
I will never waver in the fight to ensure that women, especially low-income women without health insurance, can access life-saving cancer screenings. I will strongly push back against any effort to block women's access to contraceptives.
