Photo ops not withstanding, Chris has the worst current voting record amongst the Connecticut Congressional delegation on issues of Choice. He supported the anti-DNX bill - the so-called “partial birth” abortion ban - and was the only member of Connecticut’s delegation to do so. In doing so, he both voted for a bill banning a safe abortion procedure and voted for a bill that did not allow for exceptions to protect a woman’s health. If Chris wants to vote as a “pro-lifer,” he should stay home from pro-Choice rallies rather than pandering for votes from constituents more progressive than he on the issue at hand.
