Political careerEdit

In parliament, Brocard serves on the Committee on Social Affairs.[3]

In late 2020, Brocard left the LREM group and instead joined the MoDem group.[4][5]

Political positionsEdit

In October 2017, Brocard joined forces with Éric Alauzet to call for a moratorium on the government's plans for extending vaccination requirements for young children.[6]

In July 2019, Brocard decided not to align with her parliamentary group's majority and became one of 52 LREM members who abstained from a vote on the French ratification of the European Union’s Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) with Canada.[7]

In September 2019, Brocard voted against the party line and opposed new rules on providing access to assisted reproductive technology (ART) to all women.[8]
