Healthcare should be affordable and accessible to all, which is why I consistently advocate for reforms that do just that. That’s why I helped champion a bill that makes insulin more affordable and made changes to Illinois law so that more medical professionals can practice telehealth and reach more patients.
Caring for yourself or a sick family member shouldn’t jeopardize your job. I voted to pass the Employee Sick Leave Act so that people caring for family members can focus their attention on providing the best care and spending quality time with family, instead of worrying about being penalized by their workplace.
A woman should have autonomy over her body and her right to privacy should be protected. I will fight to ensure the reproductive rights of women are always protected in Illinois. Standing up for women’s reproductive rights is more than just an abortion debate, this is also about protecting everyone’s rights to privacy and autonomy.
