 I have been a strong proponent for reproductive rights including in my work and training as a physician, where I experienced the limitations placed upon providers in various hospitals all relating to reproductive healthcare. I believe the choice of whether and when to have children is completely individual to everyone, and patients should be provided with every option to make the right choice for themselves without government interference.  As a physician, I take it personally when the government tries to tell me how to interact with patients or how I should treat them. That is why I am proud to have received the endorsement of @NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado
