Pro-Choice Voter Guide: Alabama District 02
Rep. Martha Roby
Rep. Martha Roby (R) is anti-choice. She is the incumbent.
Rep. Roby earned a 0 percent score in NARAL Pro-Choice America's 2011 Congressional Record on Choice.
Voted twice to block Planned Parenthood from receiving any federal funds, which would have denied millions of Americans access to contraception, cancer screenings, and other basic medical care.
Voted for H.R.3, a bill that would ban abortion coverage in state health-insurance exchanges; impose tax penalties on small businesses and many individuals who purchase private health plans that include abortion coverage; and make permanent several restrictions that block many women from accessing abortion care.
Voted to allow hospitals to refuse to provide emergency abortion care to women who could die without it.
"I am unapologetically pro-life and will continue to do what is necessary to protect the lives of the unborn. Every 2 minutes, a life is lost because of an abortion. That adds up to 3,300 lives a day or 1.2 millions a year. I believe I have an obligation to do everything I can to fight for the unborn and to prevent taxpayer money from funding abortion," Rep. Roby said.
Therese Ford (D) has no known position on choice.
