Reproductive Health Care and Education
Karla supports protecting the right for women to have autonomy over their own bodies. We need to ensure that access to reproductive health care is not restricted. Promoting education and access to birth control are the two best ways to prevent the need for abortions. Karla has advocated for protecting reproductive rights in Illinois, and recently advocated for the Keeping Youth Safe and Healthy Act, which sets standards for age appropriate, comprehensive and inclusive sex education taught in our schools, which would further reduce the need for abortions, and reduce the spread of sexually transmitted infections.
