Women’s reproductive rights and healthcare for all are core issues for Robyn Gabel, and she has the career accomplishments and record to back that up. Robyn has co-sponsored bills expanding healthcare coverage for birth control and growing comprehensive sex education in public schools. Robyn’s career for over twenty years before public service was building a not-for-profit from the ground up into a major force in Illinois on maternal and children healthcare.
This year Robyn was also instrumental in ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment which ensures women cannot be discriminated against in their workplace on the basis of gender. For her aggressive social action, Planned Parenthood endorsed Robyn’s candidacy again this year, as did Citizen Action, a progressive civil liberties advocacy group, and the Independent Voters of Illinois Independent Precinct Organization (IVI-IPO) a local progressive organization.
