No matter where you live, what you look like or what you do, everyone should have the freedom to decide what is best for themselves and their families, including when it comes to abortion.
Every pregnancy is complicated and unique, which is exactly why families should be trusted to make these decisions for themselves — without interference from politicians.
We know the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade is already having horrific consequences: women and children are being forced to carry pregnancies to term; crisis pregnancies ending in more complications and misery.
And data shows us that it will not reduce abortions, but it will erode quality of life and will steal economic opportunity from women in our state.
The best way to reduce abortions is to reduce unwanted and teen pregnancies. That means making sure every adult has access to medically accurate information and birth control, and providing honest, age-appropriate sex education to our kids.
