Position Papers
Iraq and Civil Liberties
As the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, Jane Harman has established herself as one the country's most outspoken and effective critics of President Bush's policies regarding the Iraq war, the use of intelligence, and domestic surveillance. Her national reputation as a thoughtful, bipartisan legislator has given unique credibility to her criticism of Administration policies.
Reproductive Choice
Women's reproductive rights are under assault. In Congress, the leadership in both Chambers have Roe v. Wade in their sights, and the chipping away has already begun. Decisions that should be made between consenting adults or in a doctor's office are now being made on the floors of the House and Senate.
