Issue Position: Reproductive Health and Family Planning

Issue Position

Date: Jan. 1, 2018

Chris ran for Executive Council after five Republican men voted to defund Planned Parenthood. After his election to the Executive Council in 2012, he led the successful fight to reverse that decision and fund family planning services and cancer screenings for more than 13,000 women and men in New Hampshire.

As a member of the New Hampshire House, Chris earned a 100% pro-choice voting record and opposed legislation that would have interfered with a woman's fundamental right to control her own body. In Congress, Chris will:

Oppose attempts to restrict women's access to reproductive health services

Support efforts to prevent businesses from being able to deny women access to contraception coverage in their health plans

Support the repeal of the Global Gag Rule so that organizations can provide family planning services to women around the world
