Raja Krishnamoorthi on Abortion
Raja will stand up in Congress against efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, which is the largest provider of health services to poor women across the country. He will fight efforts to reduce funding for contraceptive services, including removing those benefits from coverage under the Affordable Care Act (also known as ObamaCare). And he will work to protect and expand U.S. efforts to improve women's access to healthcare and contraceptive services overseas
The Project Vote Smart Voter Guide inferred how candidates would respond to the question, 'Abortion: Do you generally support pro-choice or pro-life legislation?' Project Vote Smart notes, "in response to the increasing unwillingness of candidates to answer issue questions, Project Vote Smart has researched Congressional candidates' public records to determine candidates' likely responses on certain key issues. These issue positions, from the year 2016, are provided [for candidates who] refused to provide voters with positions on key issues covered by the 2016 Political Courage Test, despite repeated requests. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their parties and advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
