Issue Position: Family Planning and a Women's Right to Contraception and Abortion

It is hard to believe that there can be any question about a women's right to use contraception that is both affordable (covered by insurance or provided free to the disadvantaged) and available. This was thought by many to be a settled issue. However, extremists who fail to recognize the needs of working women and families in the 21st century continue their attacks. Let it also be said that while reproductive rights are primarily a women's issue, they also greatly affect the men who love them; by virtue of the absolute need for Family Planning in the 21st century economy. I will most certainly support the fundamental right for families to plan and for women to control their reproductive rights.
