In Her Own Words
"As a member of Congress, the only member from Illinois on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, I have been proud to visit Israel and work to strengthen the steadfast bond between our two nations. --Let us reaffirm our commitment towards an even more secure Israel, and a truly just and lasting peace among Israel, its neighbors, and all nations."
"I believe in a woman's right to choose and in her right to make her own decisions about her body and her healthcare. As your Congresswoman, I will work to preserve abortion rights and expand access to birth control as these are essential components of women's reproductive health. It's one reason I support the Affordable Care Act, especially the expansion of women's preventive healthcare services. I believe that women are more than capable of making our own choices about their healthcare."
