Women's Rights

Texas women deserve leaders that will support their right to make their own medical decisions, fight for equal pay for equal work, and protect against gender based discrimination in the healthcare industry.

Women's Health

John supports every woman's right to make her own health care decisions in consultation with her doctor and her family. He will defend access to contraception and a woman's right to choose; he will fight any efforts by insurance companies to discriminate based on gender; he will protect Planned Parenthood from funding cuts that would diminish their ability to provide critical reproductive and preventative health care services to women and men.

Equal Pay

Women in Texas earn 79 cents for every dollar earned by men. That is simply unacceptable. John will support legislation that would require all federal contractors to be paid equal money for equal work, regardless of gender. He will also support legislation that would require companies with more than 100 employees to report wage statistics to the federal government, broken down by race, gender, and ethnicity. This type of transparency will help tackle discrimination and close the gender pay gap.
