On Abortion: A woman's body is not the property of the state

I am pro-choice and believe that Roe v. Wade must remain the law of the land. We need to restore funding under Title X. We need federal judges who will strike down the six-week abortion ban passed by the Georgia Legislature which is patently unconstitutional. A woman's body is not the property of the state.

On Civil Rights: Supports Stacey Abrams' plan for secure and fair elections

I am proud to be a member of the party that does all it can to promote voting, rather than a party here in Georgia that counts on suppression to win elections. I support the plan proposed by Stacey Abrams to ensure secure and fair elections. It is also why I support a Voting Rights Act for the 21st Century--because every American deserves to have a vote that counts and is heard.

On Energy & Oil: Rejoin Paris Accords; invest in clean energy

The climate change crisis is real, and we need to take bold, immediate action to combat the effects. It is critical that we acknowledge the science and support steps like reducing the use of fossil fuels with the goal of achieving net zero emissions, re-entering the Paris Climate Accords, and investment in clean energy technology to protect our planet for future generations. We must and we can reach net zero emissions by 2050 or sooner.

On Gun Control: Time for talk has long since passed; gun legislation now

We are the only developed country to experience mass shootings at the frequency we do, and we must put an end to the gun violence epidemic in this country. I proudly support universal background checks and a ban on the civilian purchase of weapons of war. As a former teacher, it is the highest priority to me that we keep our kids safe. The time for talk has long since passed. We need action and legislation now.

On Health Care: Everyone in US deserves affordable, quality healthcare

Everyone in the United States, the richest country on earth, deserves access to affordable, quality healthcare. That's why I support a public option. We have made great strides forward with the Affordable Care Act but have been challenged at every turn by conservative courts and a Congress more focused on obstruction than good governance. We can build on what we have to improve healthcare and lower costs for tens of millions of Americans.

On Abortion: Opposes Georgia abortion law; supports Roe v. Wade

A single dad, Matt's two daughters, Tess and Willie, have been the daily stars of his life. Together they have been longtime boosters of Planned Parenthood. Matt will continue to fight the new Georgia law that takes away a woman's right to choose. And Matt will work hard to protect Roe v. Wade in an era in which Donald Trump's judicial nominees threaten it.

On Gun Control: Ban sale of weapons of war

As a former teacher and head of a Georgia school, Matt shares America's frustration with Washington's failure to do anything to protect kids from guns. He supports a ban on the sale of weapons of war, like the AR-15. And he thinks Congress is long overdue to pass a real, meaningful, universal background check law to keep guns out of the hands of those who shouldn't have them.
