Pro-Choice Voter Guide: Delaware Senate
Sen. Tom Carper
Sen. Tom Carper (D) is mixed-choice. He is the incumbent.
Sen. Carper earned a 100 percent score in NARAL Pro-Choice America's 2011 Congressional Record on Choice.
Voted against the proposal 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 against a budget bill that would have cut funding for contraception and cancer screenings, made it harder for low-income women in D.C. to choose abortion care, and eliminated family-planning programs for the world's poorest women.
Voted for the nomination of Goodwin Liu to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
Sen. Carper said, "But I'm not certain that Judge Alito agrees with me that we shouldn't go back in time to a place where almost all abortions were illegal, where women who wanted to end a pregnancy were forced into unhealthy behavior that often put their lives and their reproductive futures at risk. That's why, during his confirmation hearing, I was disappointed that Judge Alito, unlike Justice Roberts, declined to acknowledge that the Supreme Court decision that granted women the right to end an early-term pregnancy is "settled law.""
Kevin Wade (R) is anti-choice.
Andrew Groff (G) has no known position on choice.
