As president and CEO of The Witness Project, a local non-profit agency dedicated to breast cancer mortality, State Sen. Marilyn Moore is used to protecting women’s health. Should she win a third term representing Trumbull and parts of Bridgeport and Monroe, Moore said women would be a top priority for her in Hartford, too.
“Reproductive health is going to continue to be a major issue,” Moore said Tuesday. “There have been many bills introduced in the last four years to take away power from women, and put up barriers and restrictions. The reason they didn’t go farther is because we had a Democratic governor who would head off anything going that way.”
