Floyd County Democrats have taken a stand on health issues that have been in the spotlight for years. At the party’s monthly meeting on February 25, the following statement was adopted with unanimous support:
We affirm that all Americans should have access to affordable health care, including reproductive care, to excellent education and childcare, and to livable wages that support families and welcome children into our society. We support health education in public schools and broad access to contraception – proven means of reducing unplanned pregnancies. We believe that these are the true life-affirming policies. We reject political rhetoric that exploits tragic, personal events for the sake of political advantage.
