2020 presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) unveiled a plan Wednesday to advance reproductive health care rights, such as access to abortions and birth control, if elected president.

"I stand with those leading the fight for reproductive freedom and will continue to fight to protect the constitutional right to abortion and ensure that everyone has real access to reproductive health care."
