Family Planning
“As your State Senator, I will fight to expand access to affordable contraception and safe, legal abortion. Family planning doesn’t stop at birth: I will work tirelessly to expand early learning programs and universal paid family and medical leave.”
Reproductive rights are at risk across America as cultural conservatives assault the wall between church and state. Many parts of our country have made it nearly impossible for working class women to access abortion while neglecting to empower parents to take care of their children.
Here in Connecticut, we must do better. If elected, I will work to expand access to family planning, including abortion and contraceptive care. I will fight to strengthen early learning programs like preschool and new parent education. And I will proudly support universal paid family and medical leave.
