In 1973, the United States Supreme Court ruled on Roe v. Wade, that was forty-three years ago today.
This was a monumental decision to protect women’s reproductive rights, and yet still today, there are extremists like my opponent, Rep. Tom Rooney, who refuse to consider the issue settled.
We can not allow the Supreme Court's landmark decision to be used as a biter point of contention -- remaining under constant attack.
As the former President of my local chapter of NOW, and the mother of two beautiful daughters, I’m outraged, no, I’m disgusted by the blatant attempts being made to restrict a woman’s right to make her own medical decisions.
In Washington, I will remain a staunch advocate for women’s reproductive rights and equality issues.
I will not rest while extremists are trying to take women back to the dark ages.
