CHRISTOPHER ON CHOICE
In addition to Roe v. Wade, I support four policies that will increase access to quality health care, reduce the need for abortions, and respect and increase the reproductive freedom of women:
1. Expand Medicaid immediately. It would decrease the number of abortions by 20% over five years.
2. Mandate science-based comprehensive sex education in public schools.
3. Make contraception free for young adults fifteen years or older.
4. Expand Medicaid coverage for pregnant women and new mothers to two years and nine months.
What's unique about these policies is that both people who are pro-choice and anti-choice can support them. I support Roe v. Wade. But like Mary and Holly, I would allow those who disagree with us on abortion rights to still run for office and let the voters decide for themselves in a primary who represents their values.
