I support women’s rights to make their own health care decisions. Unlike Congressman John Faso, who has called Roe v. Wade a “black mark upon this country,” and voted for a health care bill that defunded Planned Parenthood, I will fight to defend women’s rights from an assault by the current President and Republican-led Congress. I also strongly support opposing any use of taxpayer money for settlements in sexual harassment suits.
I will also work to ensure that women earn equal pay for equal work. It is deeply troubling that Faso repeatedly voted against equal pay while a member of the New York State Assembly; his is not a voting record consistent with the values of our region.
