Abortion

Personally, I am against abortion except in some rare cases. However, I am decidedly pro-choice. I believe a woman has the right to choose what to do with her body, and that government must not have any involvement in this choice. Accordingly, I think we should defend-- not cut-- family planning services such as Planned Parenthood. In addition, it's crucial that we nominate Supreme Court Justices that will uphold Roe v. Wade and support women's' rights-- including the right to choose and the right to access family planning as part of quality health care services afforded to all Americans under the Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare).

My opponent, Mimi Walters, voted NO on every pro-choice bill and voted YES on every anti-choice bill proposed in Congress and California's Senate and Assembly, for more than a decade. She apparently feels, in this case at least, that government does have the right to invade our private lives in making a decision that should be between the woman, her doctor, and God. Once again, she isn't working for WE the People. Instead, she is working for her Wall Street and Billionaire Class campaign contributors. See which industries are Walters' largest contributors here!
