[Extensions of Remarks] [Page E54] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] HONORING MONA REIS _____ HON. LOIS FRANKEL of florida in the house of representatives Wednesday, January 23, 2013 Ms. FRANKEL of Florida. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor Mona Reis, a courageous advocate for women's reproductive freedom. Ms. Reis runs the Presidential Women's Center in West Palm Beach, Florida which has provided quality individualized health care for thousands of women since its founding in 1980. Without this exceptional resource, many women in South Florida would go without needed wellness and reproductive health care services. Today, as we commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the Supreme Court's landmark Roe v. Wade decision, which affirmed a woman's right to reproductive choice, I thank Mona Reis for her compassionate, dedicated, and unrelenting pursuit of women's reproductive freedom. ____________________
