Girls Just Want to Have Fun-damental Rights

My Body. My Choice.

Days after the anniversary of Roe v. Wade and after millions of women marched to have their voices heard, the Trump administration is continuing their dangerous crusade to put the government in charge of women’s bodies and put bureaucrats in charge of families’ private health decisions.

While every single House Republican voted to limit women’s reproductive health care options – including an attempt to take away the comprehensive private health insurance coverage millions of women already have – Democrats will continue to stand our ground and fight to defend a woman’s constitutional right to make her own reproductive health decisions, in consultation with her family, her physician, and her faith.



Now more than ever, all Americans who value freedom must stand together and reject schemes to return our country to the days when women’s rights were not recognized and honored under the law. House Democrats will continue to lead the effort to defend reproductive choice andprotect the rights of women across the country.  

Every American woman should be able to make her own health decisions with dignity and respect, and without the interference of politicians or employers.

However, when she recently applied for Medicare Part B, she was told that she would be penalized for late enrollment. Therefore, my office contacted the Social Security Administration (SSA) requesting that it review my constituent’s employment records showing that she has been working up until now and received insurance through her employer. After reviewing my constituent’s records, SSA updated her employment period to show that she did not enroll late. Now my constituent has access to the healthcare she needs with no penalty fee.
