|REP. BECERRA VOTES AGAINST LEGISLATION ATTACKING WOMEN’S ACCESS TO HEALTH CARE|
WASHINGTON, DC—Today, after voting against legislation (H.R. 3541) that would restrict women's access to health care services, Representative Xavier Becerra (CA-31), Vice Chair of the House Democratic Caucus, released the following statement:
"Despite its misleading title, H.R. 3541 would do nothing to address the issue of sex discrimination. By pushing a divisive agenda that attacks women’s access to health care services, House Republicans are making their priorities clear.
Instead of threatening the relationship between women and their doctors, Congress should be fighting to eliminate sex discrimination by increasing access to reproductive health care services, promoting pay equity and ensuring quality education."
