Rep. Peters Stands Against Attempt to Undermine Women’s Health Choices

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Scott Peters (CA-52) released the following statement after voting against H.R. 7, which would grossly intrude on women’s healthcare decisions:

“As a longtime advocate for a woman’s right to choose and the idea that women and their doctors, not politicians, should make personal health care decisions, I strongly oppose this bill. All women, regardless of income level, deserve equal access to all health care options; this bill limits those choices for many women and families. All women should be able to choose what's best for her health and the well-being of her family. Instead of bringing ideas forward to grow our economy, Speaker Boehner has brought a bill to the floor that is more about political posturing than helping create middle-class jobs or educating our country’s students.”
