Leon Panetta compiled a strong pro-abortion voting record while serving in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1976 to 1994 from California’s 16th Congressional District. In 1990, he was a co-sponsor of the federal Freedom of Choice Act, and later, as President Bill Clinton’s White House chief of staff, Panetta defended the then-president’s veto of a bill that would have prohibited partial-birth abortions.
