Voting for Pro-Choice Candidates Saves Women’s Lives. Vote Barbara Boxer.

Voting for Pro-Choice Candidates Saves Women’s Lives. Vote Barbara Boxer.

Anthony Beilenson represented California as an Assemblyman, State Senator, and then as a member of the U.S. Congress from 1963 to 1997.  In 1967, his bill, one of the first to enact abortion reform, was signed into California law. Beilenson recognized that when abortion is illegal, most doctors will refuse to perform abortions. This forces women into the back alleys, making the procedure potentially life-threatening. When abortion was illegal in California, every year more than a hundred thousand pregnant women were forced to risk their lives and receive unsafe, illegal procedures.

Barbara Boxer, like Congressman Beilenson, recognizes that keeping abortion legal saves women’s lives. Boxer has spent her career defending reproductive health care for all women, including access to legal abortions. Her opponent, Carly Fiorina, would overturn Roe v. Wade. That action could lead, once again, to an era of back alley abortions.

Keep abortion safe and legal. Keep Barbara Boxer.
