Reproductive Rights

Protecting reproductive freedom and the right to choose.

Reproductive Rights

With the fall of Roe, women lost the right to make decisions about their own bodies. When this happened, I marched. I signed the Reproductive Freedom for All petition, sent out videos, gathered signatures with Rally for Reproductive Rights and issued a position paper demanding all prosecutors in Michigan not criminalize abortion. I have supported women throughout my career starting in the 1980s when I took the number of assistant prosecutors from 4 women of 65 total people to over 50% of my staff. I continue to battle against an out-of-touch Republican opponent who compares abortion to genocide and does not support exceptions for rape or incest. He doesn’t even live in our district but he is running here! I believe that government has no business interfering with a woman’s health care choices, including any choice that she may make regarding abortion. We must take our rage to Michigan's ballot box in November and I pledge to codify the protections of Roe into federal law when I get to Washington. This is about freedom, rights, choice and privacy in all healthcare decisions.
