Women’s Rights

“Women are not an interest group. They are mothers and daughters, and sisters and wives. They are half of this country and they are perfectly capable of making their own choices about their health.”
– Barack Obama

The free will and ability of women to make our own healthcare decisions are being attacked.

With argument based on religious beliefs only, conservative advocates and legislators have created grave harm to a woman’s right to make her own medical decisions without the intrusion of the government. This is unconstitutional and it is wrong.

I will always use my strong, progressive voice to stand up for a woman’s right to choose and I will always argue against the idea that one theological understanding of when life begins trumps science.

Every person has the right to their own personal and religious beliefs and to live their life how they determine is best for them. They do not, however, get to infringe on another person’s freedoms or privacy based on those religious beliefs.
