Reproductive Freedom

Let’s be clear: abortion is healthcare, and it should be a constitutional right. This issue is personal for me: as a teenager, before Roe v. Wade, I traveled to Mexico to receive an abortion, because the procedure was still illegal in the United States – like it is in so many states again today. 

It’s one of the reasons I’ve made reproductive healthcare such a central pillar of my work, leading efforts from the California State Legislature, authoring California’s first Violence Against Women Act and passing a law to increase penalties for illegally blocking abortion clinic access, — and I will be a fierce champion of reproductive freedom representing California in the Senate:

Codifying Roe v Wade

Repealing The Hyde Amendment

Fighting State Attacks On Abortion
