Mike Garcia Votes Against Protecting Access to Contraception

Today, House Democrats passed the Right to Contraception Act to enshrine women’s and families’ right to access contraception into federal law – Mike Garcia voted no. This legislation comes in response to the Supreme Court’s threat to revisit settled law like Griswold v. Connecticut, following the Republican-stacked Court’s decision to overturn 50 years of precedent and rip away the right for women to access reproductive health care.

As a reminder, Garcia also:

  • Co-sponsored the Life at Conception Act, the federal personhood bill that would ban all abortions, even in the instances of rape or when the life of the mother is at risk, and certain types of birth control such as IUDs.

  • Twice voted against the Woman’s Health and Protection Act, which would protect a woman’s right to abortion

  • Voted against the Ensuring Access to Abortion Act, which would safeguard a woman’s right to travel to another state to receive an abortion if their state bans the medical procedure. This bill would stop states from putting a bounty on the heads of women, families and doctors who assist in obtaining the abortion.

DCCC spokesperson Maddy Mundy:
“Mike Garcia’s vote against protecting access to contraception shows that he thinks all our long-held rights are up for re-negotiation. Voters will hold Garcia accountable and stop Republicans from implementing their goal of a nationwide abortion ban.”
