In light of the recent controversy surrounding Planned Parenthood and the exchange of fetal tissue, it's clear that abortion remains a salient issue in the public eye. Most Republicans argue that abortion rights violate the sanctity of life, while Democrats support a woman's autonomy in making reproductive decisions.
Recent efforts put forth by politicians to limit access to abortions--either by restricting the trimesters in which they can be performed or defunding family planning centers--have many pro-choice activists on the defense.
These pro-choice advocates also have their supporters in Congress. According to our text analysis, Representatives Carolyn Maloney (NY-14), Janice Hahn (CA-44), Mike Quigley (IL-5), Ed Markey (MA-7), and Chris Van Hollen (MD-8) are most vocal on the issue of reproductive rights.
