Marty Walsh on Abortion

 

 


More to be done for access to reproductive choices

In terms of reproductive choices, crisis pregnancy centers outnumber women's health providers in Boston three to one, seriously undermining women's access to quality family planning, appropriate counseling, and overall choice. 90% of all domestic abuse victims are female, while most abusers are male. And domestic violence and overall violence against women remains under-reported & under-investigated. There remains considerable work to be done before Boston's women have true equality, access, and safety

Voted NO on overriding veto on Stem Cell Research Bill

Massachusetts Democratic Party Platform indicates voting YES in Part II: HEALTH CARE:Clause 14: Stem cell research. [State Rep. Walsh, a Democrat, voted NO].

This vote affirmed passage of the bill supporting stem cell research as originally passed by the House and Senate, rejecting Governor Romney's proposed amendments and veto, and avoiding delays of implementation. A vote of YES indicates support for embryonic stem cell research and support for regenerative medicine research.

The relevant part of the MassDems Platform is Part II, clause 14: HEALTH CARE: We endorse the Legislature's support for stem cell research, including embryonic stem cells, in the belief that such research will yield treatment for many illnesses.

Bill S. 2039 ; vote number H069
