I am proud to be the pro-choice candidate for the 62nd district. Since 1973, when the Supreme Court’s landmark decision in Roe v. Wade affirmed a woman’s right to reproductive choice, we’ve been forced to defend it over and over again as anti-choice politicians seek to undermine and chip away at our rights. It matters. The primary influence over whether or not a woman will live a life of economic stability is the number and timing of the children she chooses to bear. Without the freedom to choose for ourselves and our families, we cannot be equal in our society. I stand with NARAL Pro-Choice Connecticut as we continue to educate, inform and expand the fundamental right of all people to make their own decisions about their own bodies and lives, and I am proud to have received their endorsement.
