STATEMENT: NARAL Pro-Choice America PAC Becomes the First National Pro-Choice Group to Endorse Candidate Mark Schauer for Governor of Michigan
Today, NARAL Pro-Choice America PAC endorsed former U.S. Rep. Michigan Mark Schauer for governor.
NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue had this to say:
“NARAL Pro-Choice America PAC is proud to support Mark Schauer in his bid to become the next governor of Michigan. He has always been a strong defender of reproductive rights and, if elected, he will represent all of his constituents.
“Gov. Rick Snyder, has no such record of putting the needs of Michigan women and families ahead of his personal beliefs. He makes no qualms about the fact that he is anti-choice and signed a bill into law that would criminalize doctors.
“Michigan women and families deserve a governor who will protect and expand access to the health care they need, not take it away. Mark Schauer is the only candidate in this race we can trust, and we will work to remind voters what’s at stake in this race. Now through Election Day, we will do all we can to make sure voters elect Mark Schauer as the next governor of Michigan.”
NARAL Pro-Choice America has nearly 15,000 member activists in The Great Lake State.
