WILL ON WOMEN'S HEALTH AND EQUITY
When women thrive, families and America thrive. Women’s equality remains unfinished business in the United States. It’s unacceptable that women in this country continue to make less money than their male counterparts for doing the same job. That’s why as South Jersey’s Congressman, I’ll fight to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act, which will help ensure that no employer can pay their female employees less than their male employees.
Additionally, I’ll stand up against any attempts to strip women of their right to make their own health care choices. The decisions any woman makes about her healthcare and her body is hers – and hers alone. I will fight to protect that right. What’s more, I’ll defend women’s access to the health care services they need, and I’ll stand up against extreme right-wing attacks on Planned Parenthood, which thousands of women in New Jersey solely rely on for comprehensive health services.
