Pro-Choice Voter Guide: North Carolina District 04
Rep. David Price
Rep. David Price (D) is pro-choice. He is the incumbent.
NARAL Pro-Choice America PAC has endorsed Rep. Price.
Rep. Price earned a 100-percent score in NARAL Pro-Choice America's 2011 Congressional Record on Choice.
Voted twice 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 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 ensure that hospitals must provide emergency abortion care to women who could die without it.
In response to a question on choice in 2008, Rep. Price responded, "I have and will continue to support policy efforts to make abortion as rare as possible by encouraging adoption, providing adequate sex education that encourages responsible behavior, and improved public health services. Whether to terminate a pregnancy is not a matter that government should dictate; I stand by the Roe v. Wade decision."
Tim D'Annunzio (R) is anti-choice.
