Women’s health and reproductive freedom

The Supreme Court’s decision to unravel decades of settled law and allow states to outlaw abortion with no exceptions is both dangerous and shortsighted, and Congress must take action to codify Roe and protect a woman’s right to make decisions about her health.

Women clearly deserve—but still do not have—equal rights in this country.

I remember my mother wearing a green ‘ERA Now’ pin almost 50 years ago, and it is outrageous that we still have not ratified it. I will continue to be a fierce advocate for the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment and the advancement of women’s health, economic security, and reproductive freedom in Congress.

Dean’s record

Dean is a member of the Pro-Choice Caucus in Congress and he believes patients—not politicians—should have the freedom to make personal decisions about their own health, including when it comes to reproductive health.

In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision overturning Roe v Wade, Dean co-sponsored and voted for HR 8297, the Ensuring Access to Abortion Act, and HR 8111, the My Body, My Data Act—each of which would protect women seeking reproductive health care out-of-state—as well as HR 3755, the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would codify the reproductive freedoms previously guaranteed by Roe.

Dean is proud to have been endorsed by Planned Parenthood Action Fund for his efforts.
