A woman’s family planning decisions are not her boss’s business

Today we saw five old, conservative men who control the Supreme Court essentially rule that discrimination against women is not discrimination at all—it’s just freedom of religion. Religious freedom is fundamental to who we are as Americans, but It’s absurd to say a for-profit corporation has a constitutional right to practice a religion. Birth control is medication and a woman’s family planning decisions are not her boss’s business.

I'm proud to have the endorsement of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona. I’ll stand up to any effort to limit a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions or criminalize doctors who support them.

Congresswoman Sinema Endorsement

Thank you so much for your continued support of my campaign. Last week I received the endorsement of Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema, U.S. Representative from Arizona's 9th District. Congresswoman Sinema said:

“Aaron Marquez is the right choice for District 27. He will fight to put more resources into classrooms and help Arizona’s middle class families. He will stand up to attacks on Planned Parenthood and always protect a woman’s ability to make decisions for herself, her family and her future.”

Not only on Memorial Day

On Memorial Day many of us enjoy three-day weekends full of family barbecues, trips to the beach or lake, and the official kickoff to summer. Hopefully, during all that fun, we also remember the reason for the day off work: to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our country and the American way of life.

Grandpa-Russ.jpgI always think of my Grandpa Russ on Memorial Day. He fought with the Marines in Korea. Thank you to all the generations of Veterans that have come before us, and especially to those that made the ultimate sacrifice to defend the American way of life.
