Candidate Spotlight: Rob Martwick for State Representative 19th District

Rob Marwick 
Illinois House, 19th District

“Every woman is entitled to make health decisions with the advice of her doctor and without the intrusion of politicians. I am pro-choice and will always oppose legislation that infringes upon a woman's right to choose.

Knowledge and education can go a very long way to preventing unwanted and unexpected teen pregnancies, and sexually transmitted diseases. I believe that age-appropriate sexual-education programs should be taught to our children and contraception should be available and accessible.” Rob Martwick is 100% pro-choice and he has been endorsed by Planned Parenthood Illinois Action.

Issues: Reproductive Health Care and Jobs, Education, Taxes, Budget, and Public Employee Pension
