At a time when we believed that the progress made on women’s rights was secure, we’ve seen unprecedented attempts to limit a woman’s right to choose, her access to health care, and equal pay in the workplace.
I am 100% pro-choice, and in Congress I plan to push back against these misguided attacks on women’s rights. I am honored to have support from the women of the 10th District.

Rep. Robert Dold’s (R-Ill.) support for Planned Parenthood is a “stunt,” Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) charged Tuesday.
