Jamie Raskin on Abortion

 

 


Protect women's right to their own healthcare decisions

Protecting Women's Health Choices: In the Senate, Jamie has been a bold leader defending women's health choices and reproductive autonomy, most recently clashing with Senators trying to deny Medicaid funding for medically necessary abortions--a move that was defeated. He is 100% pro-choice and has been an indispensable ally of Maryland NARAL, Planned Parenthood, and the ACLU, which gave him its Henry Edgerton Civil Liberties Award for his unwavering defense of civil rights and civil liberties. In Congress, he will never back down from a fight to protect women's right to make their own healthcare decisions in consultation with their doctors.

Supports pro-choice legislation.

Raskin supports the PVS survey question on abortion

The Project Vote Smart Voter Guide inferred how candidates would respond to the question, 'Abortion: Do you generally support pro-choice or pro-life legislation?' Project Vote Smart notes, "in response to the increasing unwillingness of candidates to answer issue questions, Project Vote Smart has researched Congressional candidates' public records to determine candidates' likely responses on certain key issues. These issue positions, from the year 2016, are provided [for candidates who] refused to provide voters with positions on key issues covered by the 2016 Political Courage Test, despite repeated requests. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their parties and advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
