Reproductive Rights and Women’s Health
Women have a right to control their own bodies. Reproductive health care decisions should be between a woman and her doctor – and nobody else.
Last year, I was proud to lead the fight on the Senate Floor to defeat an outrageous 24-hour abortion waiting period bill. Soon after, the ACLU filed a lawsuit challenging the law that used my arguments as a framework – and in a huge win for women, the Florida Supreme Court agreed with us and put that anti-choice law on hold.
I was also proud to lead the fight in the Florida Senate to successfully double the statute of limitations for crimes of sexual violence, so that rapists and predators can be held accountable and taken off the street.
In Congress, I will always stand up for the right of women to make their own health and family planning decisions – and I will fight tooth-and-nail any effort to defund Planned Parenthood and take away comprehensive women’s health services.
