My top concern is protecting access to healthcare, especially reproductive health care. We must guarantee that medical decisions are made between a patient and their doctor. I would like to see restrictions that have no medical benefit removed, like waiting periods for abortion care. My second priority is the environment. If we don't have a safe place to live, not much else matters. I would start by focusing on alternate energy sources, improved battery capabilities, and reductions in harmful emissions. Equitable school funding is next, because all Pennsylvania children deserve the same access to a quality education. Gun safety must be addressed: background checks, mental health checks, and education of proper gun handling and storage.
Automatic voter registration for all adult citizens in the state. In-person early voting, at least the weekend prior to the election day. Restoring voting rights after prison sentence is completed. Expanded number of ballot drop boxes.
Increased funding from the state for schools instead of heavy reliance on local property values. Increasing the educator minimum salary to $60k to allow better recruitment of teachers to underserved districts.
It is a medical procedure that should not be controlled by anyone other than the patient and their doctor. Remove 24 hour waiting period between receipt of counseling materials and procedure. Remove the requirement for a second physician to deem the procedure necessary for abortions after 24 weeks. This can already be waived in a medical emergency.
