With women’s health care protections under threat at the federal level, it’s important now more than ever that we elect pro-choice state legislators to make sure women rights are safeguarded at the state level.
Kristee will stand up for a woman’s right to choose. She believes that every woman should be able to decide for herself if, when, and with whom to start or grow a family. While many states across the country are dismantling women’s ability to make their own decisions, Kristee will make sure that in Nevada, it is women and their doctors who are making health care decisions, not politicians.
Kristee will also work to make birth control more accessible. One of the most frequent barriers to birth control access is that it requires women to get a prescription from their gynecologist.
Gynecologist appointments can sometimes take months to schedule, causing long wait times in order for women to access birth control. That’s why Kristee supports legislation requiring the state’s chief medical officer issue a standing order for birth control --- so that women can get birth control through their insurance over the counter at local pharmacies.
Kristee also knows that early detection for cancer saves lives. That’s why she supports expanding access for critical procedures, like breast and cervical cancer screenings.
