Pro-Choice and Pro-Women

This year, women have been raising their voices, taking to the streets, sharing their stories, and holding elected leaders accountable. In the age of the #MeToo movement, we need leaders who not only respect women but who will fight for us and march with us!

One of the reasons I'm proud to work with Congressman Peter DeFazio is because he's always been a strong advocate for women. He's consistently stood with a woman's right to birth control and abortion, which is why he has a 100% rating from the Planned Parenthood Action Fund.

Every day, while I'm working hard for Peter, I know he's working even harder for me and defending my rights in Washington, D.C.

Tomorrow, he'll be speaking at the NARAL fundraiser in Portland about the importance of affordable access to birth control, mental health and counseling services, and safe sex education for all individuals, not just the wealthy few.

We don't need leaders who mock sexual assault survivors on the world's stage. We need leaders who stand with survivors and work for change! We need leaders who vote to protect our health care and don't think being a woman is a pre-existing condition. We need more leaders like Peter DeFazio.

As Independent as Oregon.

Peter DeFazio's common-sense proposals aim to create good-paying jobs, expand access to affordable health care and develop options outside of the for-profit marketplace, restore economic and educational opportunities, hold government accountable and tip the scales of inequality back in favor of hard-working Oregonians.
