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
