Jill Stein on Families & Children
Green Party presidential nominee; Former Challenger for MA Governor
A: Reproductive healthcare needs to be an essential part of healthcare in general. Women's access to family planning--that should be the first principle of reproductive healthcare. When women can plan their health future, we can make abortion obsolete. Those who object to abortion on moral grounds ought to be promoting family planning and contraception as the means to avoid abortion.
I am familiar with the issue of community violence as a doctor who delivered care in under-served communities. In this work, I've learned that youth violence is not an isolated problem subject to a quick fix. It is a symptom of the abandonment of our communities by the elected leadership and by those who hold economic power.
One of my key priorities in running for governor is to heal the wounds of our distressed communities and to rescue the at-risk youth who may lose their way irretrievably if we do not act. I will restore all the community service funds cut by the Patrick Administration over the past four years.
