• I believe that all people (including women) should be paid equally for equal work.  
  • Planned Parenthood should be funded.  Access to birth control lowers the rate of abortions and unwanted pregnancy. The more access to pre-natal care women have, the better our maternal mortality rate will be and babies will be born healthier, with fewer complications.   Planned Parenthood also provides STD and cancer screening, which prevents more serious health problems.
  • Women should have the right to make choices related to their bodies—not the government.  The Hyde Amendment prevents Federal money from being used for abortion, but women should have access to safe abortions at their own expense if they make that decision.
  • Women should be able to work in an environment free from sexual discrimination and harassment.
