Grace Meng on Abortion

 


Provide women with access to reproductive health care

The continuous right-wing assault on women's rights in Congress should be cause for alarm for all American families. Providing women with access to reproductive health care, passing legislation like the Paycheck Fairness Act to make sure that women are compensated at the same rate as their male counterparts in the workplace, and protecting women from sexual violence and domestic abuse are not Democratic or Republican priorities--they are American priorities.

I consider myself pro-choice.

Meng opposes the PVS survey question on abortion

Project Vote Smart infers candidate issue stances on key topics by summarizing public speeches and public statements. Congressional candidates are given the opportunity to respond in detail; about 11% did so in the 2012 races.

Project Vote Smart summarizes candidate stances on the following topic: 'Abortion: Do you generally support pro-choice or pro-life legislation?'

Endorsed Endorsed by EMILY's list for pro-choice Democratic women.

Meng is endorsed by Congressional endorsement list

Our immediate focus is to protect our gains from 2008 and make sure President Obama has strong Democratic majorities in Congress. Its name? EMILY's List--an acronym for "Early Money Is Like Yeast" (because it makes the dough--campaign funds--rise).
