Protecting Women’s Health


As a family doctor, I have witnessed women’s rights be chipped away slowly in Texas.

I am running for Congress to stop the assault on women’s health.

I believe that reproductive justice should never be on the table to be leveraged in budget or legislative negotiations.

I will fight for women’s health by:

  • Protecting Title X and the community health centers that serve women and their families

  • Sustaining funding for federally qualified health centers

  • Mandating that Medicaid and CHIP coverage lasts at least 12 months postpartum (currently at sixty days)

  • Voting with unequivocal support for a woman’s right to choose

  • Ensuring that structural inequities, institutional biases, and social determinants of health are embedded in the conversation around contraceptive choice

  • Addressing racial disparities in care and health outcomes; particularly in maternal mortality rates



In the weeks and months to come, I will publish more pages with my thoughts on a range of policy topics – from foreign policy, to equality, to ethics in government.
