Brad Schneider on Abortion

 

 


Woman's fundamental right to make decisions about her body

I believe in a woman's fundamental right to make her own decisions about her body and her health, free from intrusion by the government. We must diligently protect women's access to comprehensive health care, including family planning, birth control, and safe, legal abortion. As a member of Congress, I will oppose any legislation that limits women's access to full and comprehensive health care. I will also oppose any legislation that seeks to place limits on the full spectrum of health decisions between a woman and her doctor.

I believe we can reduce the number of unwanted pregnancies, and subsequently the number of abortions, by enhancing access to family planning and birth control. As well, we should promote effective sex education programs to teach about abstinence, birth control options, sexually transmitted diseases, and other information to help young adults make good decisions now and throughout their lifetimes.
