NARAL Pro-Choice California and Rep. Lungren: On the Same Page?

By Amy Everitt

Last week, Rep. Dan Lungren commented that "personal health care decisions should be made by patients, families and doctors, not by bureaucrats or politicians in Washington." (Denham and Lungren Support Repeal, 1/20/11).  

We couldn’t agree more.

However, Lungren’s record doesn’t seem to match to his words. He seemed okay with government intervention when he voted twice to deny military women the right to use their own, private funds for abortion care at overseas military hospitals in places like Afghanistan and Iraq.
