In His Own Words
“I am unwaveringly pro-choice, and I find it unconscionable that Congress spends an inordinate amount of time trying to pass legislation that tells a woman what she can or cannot do with her body, and/or defund Planned Parenthood." 1
“For too long, women in America have had to fight the same battles over and over again. It’s time for Congress to start proactively supporting policies that give everyone the opportunity to reach their full potential.” 2
