EL'ona Kearney to Ferguson and Reichert: Step Aside, Women Are Speaking Now


Seattle, WA – August 15, 2023 – Gubernatorial candidate EL’ona Kearney stands firm in her support for reproductive rights, emphasizing the importance of acknowledging the diverse experiences and needs of women in underserved communities. In a recent statement, Kearney reaffirmed her stance, declaring, "My body matters. None of my male opponents can be the face of reproductive rights. They lack lived experience and fail to understand the challenges faced by women in marginalized communities."

Kearney advocates for a different approach to reproductive rights, rejecting the notion of a one-size-fits-all solution. She emphasizes the need for comprehensive policies that address the complex realities faced by women, rather than reducing the debate to simplistic arguments. Drawing from her own experience, Kearney highlights the systemic barriers encountered when she was denied the opportunity for a tubal ligation at 18, citing Medicaid restrictions.

The gubernatorial candidate urges both Republicans and Democrats to move beyond surface-level discourse on abortion. She criticizes Republicans for protesting means of preventing abortion while Democrats often overlook related issues such as the exploitation of children as baby-making farms in our communities. Kearney asserts, "Reproductive rights encompass more than just abortion and promiscuous sex; they encompass the freedom to make informed choices about our bodies and futures."

As part of her campaign platform, Kearney pledges to advocate for comprehensive reproductive rights that address systemic barriers and ensure autonomy for all individuals, regardless of their socioeconomic status. She is committed to amplifying the voices of marginalized communities and addressing the societal issues often overlooked in political debates.
