Reproductive Rights

Home > Issues

As a Democratic candidate for the Senate representing Florida, I am committed to fiercely defending and expanding women’s reproductive rights. This includes safeguarding the constitutional right to access safe and legal health needs, as established by Roe v. Wade. I will support legislation that ensures women have access to comprehensive reproductive healthcare, including contraception, prenatal care, and legal pregnancy termination services. This also means opposing any federal or state-level attempts to restrict these rights through unnecessary regulations or funding cuts to organizations like Planned Parenthood, which provide essential healthcare services to millions of women.

In addition, I will advocate for policies that address the broader spectrum of women’s health and economic well-being. This includes pushing for paid family leave, affordable childcare, and equal pay for equal work, recognizing that reproductive rights are deeply interconnected with economic and social justice. By ensuring women have control over their reproductive choices, we empower them to pursue their education and career goals, contributing to the overall economic strength and vitality of our communities. I will also work to improve access to healthcare and education, particularly in underserved communities, to ensure all women have the resources and support they need to make informed decisions about their bodies and futures.

Furthermore, we must advocate for aftercare mental and healthcare support for women who personally decide to terminate their pregnancies legally. “Pregnancy termination is not just a medical procedure; it is also an emotionally and mentally challenging experience.” Ensuring that women have access to mental health services and comprehensive post-abortion care is crucial for their overall well-being. By providing this support, we acknowledge and address the full spectrum of needs women may have, reinforcing our commitment to their health, dignity, and autonomy.
