In Her Own Words


"I will always stand for women's health issues, including access to contraception and the right to make one's own reproductive choices. I will fight any legislation or executive action that allows insurance companies to discriminate against women. I believe that only a woman, her family, and her doctor should be able to decide what is best for her health." 1 

"I oppose the BDS movement and wholeheartedly reject the characterization of Israel as a pariah state, somehow akin to Apartheid South Africa." 2
