DNC Elects Strong Pro-Choice Champion as New Chair
Washington, D. C. – Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, congratulated Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) on her election as the new chair of the Democratic National Committee. Keenan had previously praised President Obama for selecting the strong pro-choice advocate to serve in this important post.
“Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is a vocal and effective champion of our pro-choice values,” Keenan said. “Without a doubt, Rep. Wasserman Schultz will clearly communicate the difference between pro-choice policies that protect our privacy and anti-choice attacks at the state and federal levels that open the door to even more political interference in our personal decisions. This is an especially good day for the DNC, President Obama, and the voters who will be voting pro-choice in 2012.”
