Standing Up for Women's Health

Gerry Connolly believes women’s health decisions should be private and made without interference from government.  That’s why he has opposed recent efforts by some politicians to turn back the clock on women’s rights by restricting the right to choose, allowing insurance companies to deny coverage for birth control, and shutting down organizations like Planned Parenthood that provide essential health services and screenings to women.

Connolly stood up to attempts to block the Violence Against Women Act, voted for the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, and has worked to ensure that all women have access to affordable birth control.  He will always vote to protect a woman’s right to choose and to keep government out of personal health care decisions.
