State Sen. Barbara Favola (D-31) received the endorsement of Emily’s List, which advocates for more female pro-choice representatives at all levels of public office.
“Barbara Favola has been a tireless champion of women’s rights, and we are proud to support her reelection campaign to the state Senate,” said Senior Director at EMILY’s List, Jessica Post. “Senator Favola embodies why we need more women public servants. She continually fights against attempts to limit women’s health care options, and her legislation works to prevent domestic violence and campus sexual assaults.”
Favola serves as Senate chair of the Women’s Reproductive Health Caucus. Since her election in 2011, she has patroned bills removing medically unnecessary requirements prior to receiving abortions, combatting sexual assault on college campuses, and removing firearms from offenders convicted of domestic violence misdemeanors.
