Republicans Won’t Fight for Women’s Reproductive Rights 

Hartford, CT - The Trump administration has made it clear that one of their priorities is rolling back progress on women’s health and access to reproductive care. From allowing employers to deny coverage of contraception, to undermining Medicaid, to attacking Planned Parenthood, which provides a range of healthcare services for over 2.5 million people, the Trump administration has attempted to roll back women’s access to vital health care services. Democratic leaders in Connecticut have fought back to ensure women have access to vital health services, with Governor Malloy promising to maintain Planned Parenthood funding.

Hartford, CT - Right-to-work laws are bad for unions, workers, and wages. In states that have enacted right-to-work laws wages are 3.1% lower for both union and non-union members. In Wisconsin, right-to-work laws took away unions’ collective bargaining power, which devastated teachers with a 2.6% decline in wages and an 18.6% decline in benefits over 5 years.  Higher union density has historically led to higher wages, and right-to-work laws harm unions.

Republican Gubernatorial Candidates Won’t Stand Up for Health Care
