As a government which prides itself on being a leader in human rights, civil rights, and civil liberties I believe we have done a great disservice to half of our constituents. To think that in our country today I, as a male, have a higher income sheerly on the basis of my sex is absurd. What’s more is women’s reproductive rights are regularly under attack in states across the country. In the case of Georgia specifically, a recent Bill allows for a woman who miscarried to potentially be investigated. This Bill does not include language protecting women from criminal prosecution should they seek an abortion, among other ludicrous inclusions. This is a far governmental overreach into the lives of constituents. The fact of the matter is the Georgia bill and bills like it, passed in Alabama, Mississippi, Ohio, and introduced in many other states put women’s health and lives at risk. I believe in a woman’s right to choose; that we have control over our own bodies is essential to the very core of personal liberty. As your Congressman I would:
- Support Equal Pay for Equal Work.
- Support Women’s reproductive rights.
