Unbelievably we appear to be fighting battles over reproductive choice and access to contraception. Those wars were fought and won 30-40 years ago. I strongly favor reproductive freedom and a woman's right to choose. My wife and I have a long history of supporting Planned Parenthood. Brian Bilbray voted to defund the agency; that is out of step with this district and the majority of Americans.
It is embarrassing and shameful that when so many families are hurting or are facing uncertainty about their jobs, children's education, parents' long-term care -- when there are so many pressing issues for our nation and Congress -- we are having a national discussion about who should have access to contraception.
When I go to Congress I will vehemently protect women's access to contraception and a woman's right to choose.
