|Pro-choice||Do you generally support pro-choice or pro-life legislation?|

I support the Supreme Court's decision in Roe v. Wade to uphold a woman's right to reproductive freedom, and I believe that abortions should be rare, legal, and safe.|

I have been a strong proponent of the Brady Law, which makes background checks a requirement for gun purchases from licensed dealers.|
