I am pro-choice because:
I believe in a woman's right to choose and make her own decisions about her reproductive health care. The government should not interfere with this process and, in doing so, is only endangering the health of Montana women and families.
Limiting access to reproductive health care does not stop women and families from obtaining an abortion, but rather it will deter them from safe and legal options.
A woman's decision on her reproductive health care services is an incredibly intimate and personal decision. It should remain between a woman, her physician and spiritual leaders. This is no place for politicians or the state Legislature.
I believe in personal autonomy and human dignity. Every person should have the right to make their own decisions about their body and their health.
I am pro-equality because:
All Montanans, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, deserve equal protection under the law.
All individuals deserve to live safe and happy lives, free from the fear of discrimination of losing their jobs, being evicted from their homes, or being asked to leave a public establishment.
Our youth are some of the most vulnerable in our community. They are facing challenges in school that must be faced head on. Montana is the only state in our country without anti-bullying laws. As your next representative, I will fight to change this.
