Abortion and reproductive rights

I personally oppose abortion, however I will not seek to change Maryland’s laws protecting women's rights to the procedure, and I will not support any efforts to limit access to contraception. While I strongly support women's rights to the abortion procedure, especially, during health risk or as a result to rape or incest, I am committed to work to increase access to contraception to help women and their partners reduce unwanted pregnancies, in order to realize fewer abortions. Working towards fewer abortions is not limiting women's rights to the procedure, however, it's a position to provide better access to contraception to help better prevent unwanted pregnancy, so that less women have to require the procedure. Furthermore, to better prevent unwanted pregnancy, I believe men and women must be better educated early-on about the subsequent responsibilities of their sexual behaviors.
