Alan Khazei on Abortion

 


Right to safe & legal abortion is indispensable

Alan believes that a woman's right to decide to have a safe and legal abortion is indispensable. It would be a travesty for the courts to overturn Roe v. Wade and turn the clocks back to a time when abortions were illegal. The decision to terminate a pregnancy is one that each woman should be able to make with her family and doctor; this is not a decision for politicians to make. That is why Alan supports the principles established in Roe vs. Wade.

Champion stem cell research for its great promise

Alan's father was part of a team that pioneered the technique of protracted arterial infusion cancer chemotherapy. Today, stem cell research holds great promise to cure life-threatening diseases like cancer, Parkinson's, diabetes, and heart disease. Federal funding will galvanize stem cell research, and as Senator, Alan will champion this research in Massachusetts and across the country. With federal funding, stem cells can save thousands of lives and bring high quality jobs to our Commonwealth.
