Ruben Gallego on Abortion

 

 


Fierce advocate for choice

In recent years, we've also seen a disturbing trend of politicians trying to dictate how health care should be administered to women. In Congress, I will be a fierce advocate for choice, just as I have been in Arizona.

When the Arizona legislature tried to block women from getting birth control through their insurer, I stood up to fight it. I did the same when the legislature moved to defund Planned Parenthood, which provides critical health services to millions of women throughout the country.

What is so upsetting about these recent attempts to block access to comprehensive women's health care--including contraception and abortion--is that these decisions aren't motivated by science. The only reason these bills exist is cynical politicians who think they gain an advantage by pushing these ideas. Those of us who stand against Republican attempts to defund Planned Parenthood and block access to health care have the facts on our side, and voters see that.
