Dold Votes to Uphold Roe v. Wade

Vote Breaks From Party, Opposes Effort to Undermine a Women’s Right to Choose

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Congressman Robert Dold (IL-10) released the following statement after breaking from his party and voting against H.R. 36:

“As a pro-choice representative for the 10th District, I have a clear record of supporting women’s choice in healthcare decisions, and this bill fails to protect those choices. The people of the 10th District sent me to Congress to advance bipartisan solutions to some of our nation’s most pressing challenges, so I look forward to getting back to work tomorrow to foster job creation, curb out of control spending and prevent a nuclear-armed Iran.”

BACKGROUND:

Rep. Dold is currently ranked the #2 most bipartisan Republican in the House of Representatives by CQ Roll Call and the #3 most bipartisan Republican in the House of Representatives by National Journal.
