Please uphold women's reproductive rights
 

I have always supported a woman's right to her own reproductive health. That's what we're talking about here - not using politically charged words like a woman's "right to choose" or even the dreaded "abortion", but the right for women to have complete control over their bodies. Imagine if there were diseases women could contract, such as uterine cancer, but the government told them they didn't have the right to take care of their health as they wished. Everyone would be up in arms! It's about allowing women to have care to quality health care regardless of income, and be allowed to make the personal health decisions that work best for them and their lives. Please do not pass regulations that would hinder women's access to this sort of medical treatment.
