Jon has been a fierce leader in the fight for reproductive freedom. In Congress, Jon will fight to pass the legislation to codify Roe v. Wade into law and has vowed to protect women’s access to reproductive health care services for all women across the country.
Two days after Justice Alito’s decision was leaked to the public, Jon went to the Supreme Court in Washington D.C. to stand with activists in opposition to this attack on choice, on women’s rights, and on human rights. That day, Jon stood outside the U.S. Supreme Court making his voice heard. Once elected to Congress, Jon will stand inside the Capitol Building making sure that all of our voices are heard.
Jon supports and will vote for the Women’s Health Protection Act, a federal law which would enshrine Roe protections and guarantee equal access to abortion across the United States.
As per the Women’s Health Protection Act:
- Reproductive justice requires every individual to have the right to make their own decisions about having children regardless of their circumstances and without interference and discrimination.
- International human rights law recognizes that access to abortion is intrinsically linked to the rights to life, health, equality and nondiscrimination, privacy, and freedom from ill-treatment.
Now, more than ever, the future of our country is on the ballot. With the Supreme Court’s assault on Roe v. Wade, it is clear that we need a leader in Congress who understands the issues and has a track record of getting things done.
