Title X - The Gag Rule is a terrible idea

#NoGagRule 📢

At a candidate forum in June, I was able to speak about my views on changes to Title X funding for family planning. My answer at this forum should make my position clear. Women should maintain control over their healthcare decisions and their bodies. As a healthcare provider, I know the harm this change will cause.

Turn on Closed Captioning. Audio is a little hard to hear at times.

Provider Perspective- Don't Let Politics come between me and my patients

🙌🏼 Why are we drawing national attention?

🙌🏼 Why are we drawing national attention?

Running for office is a unique experience. Political strategists, party insiders and media pundits all like to tell you how they think you can win. I listen to them, but I also know to listen to my gut.

My gut says that people are ready for big changes. Running to the middle and being Republican-lite because we are afraid of criticism won't do it anymore.

This is huge news for our campaign! Justice Democrats (JD) is a national organization dedicated to Democratic candidates who are turning away from the corporate wing of the Democratic party.  JD's don't endorse candidates in ever district. They put their power and resources behind candidates making real waves in the political landscape.

JUSTICE DEMOCRATS PLATFORM

  • JUMP START OUR ECONOMY:  We need a bold economic vision that will both reclaim lost capital and put money back in the pockets of hard-working Americans, and create millions of new jobs for those who have been left out of the workforce.
  • Protect Our Rights: The growing disparities in income and wealth among our nation’s citizenry have long-term impacts on our population — for wealth accumulation, debt reduction, and educational attainment.

  • Defend Our Democracy: We cannot afford to continue partisan jockeying on these issues; there is too much at stake. Americans must be provided a better chance to succeed in the face of rising income inequality and continued machinations by corporate giants.
