NARAL Pro-Choice America Looks Forward to Continuing its Work With Leader Pelosi
Washington, D.C. – Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, praised Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for her decision to remain at the helm of a strongly pro-choice Democratic leadership team in the House.
"Rep. Nancy Pelosi is a longtime pro-choice champion," Keenan said. "She has devoted her life's work to issues that include women's reproductive freedom. And as anti-choice lawmakers waged a divisive War on Women in the 112th Congress, she and her team stood resolute. Given the continuing anti-choice House majority in the incoming Congress, we anticipate even more attempts by these politicians to undermine women’s rights. We will need stalwart leaders like Leader Pelosi and others to block anti-choice lawmakers from undoing the progress we’ve made to protect our reproductive freedoms and privacy. We look forward to continuing this valuable work alongside her."
