We are the majority.
7 in 10 Americans consistently say they believe that abortion access should be legal. They believe that the decision of how and when and with whom we become parents is best made by women—not politicians.
So why are we fighting abortion bans and clinic closings, and facing opposition when we try to improve access to birth control?
The anti-choice minority has mobilized and organized, and they’ve elected their representatives at numbers far higher than we have.
While 7 in 10 Americans are pro-choice, only:
- 4 in 10 members of the U.S. Congress are pro-choice
- 3 in 10 governors are pro-choice
- 1 in 10 states have both a pro-choice House and Senate
It’s time to close the gap.
There are plenty of easy ways to speak out as part of the 7 in 10:
- Join: Stand up and be counted as one of the 7 in 10 pro-choice majority!
- Advocate: Tell your members of Congress to support the Women's Health Protection Act.
- Organize: Invite 6 friends to sign up for the 7 in 10 campaign.
- Donate: Give to NARAL Pro-Choice America so that we can work to get closer to 7 in 10 in Congress and in state houses.
- Agitate: Volunteer with NARAL Pro-Choice America and our affiliates.
News & Updates
If these four incoming freshmen members of Congress really want to keep their campaign promises, here's how they can do it.
A new NARAL Pro-Choice America and Planned Parenthood Action Fund survey in four key Senate battleground states demonstrates that voters support women's reproductive health, want to support candidates who do as well, and will vote on the issue.
Women's issues largely won in the 2014 elections, even if women-friendly candidates didn't.
We're getting ready for a surge of new attacks on abortion and birth control access when anti-choice candidates who won on Election Day take office.
"2014 will go down in the books as the year that anti-choice candidates ran hard from their clear anti-choice track records in order to convince voters they could be trusted on women’s fundamental freedoms," writes our president, Ilyse Hogue.
