Women’s Health

Alex believes in a woman’s fundamental right to make her own health care decisions, and is a staunch advocate for women’s reproductive rights. The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn a woman’s constitutional right to obtain an abortion in Dobbs v. Jackson Whole Women’s Health, emphasizes the need to codify this basic human right into federal law. As a cosponsor of the Women’s Health Protection Act, Alex is fighting to protect access to abortion services throughout the United States. While Republican-led state legislatures work to strip away reproductive rights, he’s also fighting to protect a patient’s right to travel freely between states to access care. As the radical right wing of the Supreme Court strips away the rights of Americans, Alex believes we need bold action from Congress to protect one of our most basic freedoms.
