Women’s rights and reproductive care are under assault every day by Republicans in Washington and across the country, something that’s continued unabated even during COVID-19. David Buchwald has always been a strong advocate for women’s rights. He believes in protecting a woman's ability to make her own healthcare decisions, equal pay for equal work, and ensuring protections in the workplace. As an Assemblymember, Buchwald co-sponsored the New York Reproductive Health Act, protecting a woman’s right to choose. And he helped New York State provide Planned Parenthood with a funding backstop in case the federal government went after its funding, which recently kicked into effect when the Trump Administration blocked the group from receiving Title X funds. Buchwald will go to Congress ready to vote to protect Roe v. Wade, restore funding for Planned Parenthood, and re-authorize the Violence Against Women Act.

Buchwald was endorsed by groups like WCLA PAC in his races for State Assembly in 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2018, is rated as “Pro-Choice” by Pro-Choice Voter in his campaign for Congress, and will go to Washington to fight to protect everyone’s fundamental rights and ensure equality for all.
