NARAL Pro-Choice America Pays Tribute to U.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-HI)
Washington, D.C. – Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, issued the following statement honoring the contributions and leadership of senior member and Medal of Honor recipient, U.S. Senator Dan Inouye (D-HI).
“Sen. Inouye was a pro-choice champion for reproductive freedom. The people of Hawaii were extremely lucky to have him representing them,” Keenan said. “His lifelong pro-choice voting record in Congress reflects his unwavering respect for individual freedom and opposition to political interference in our most personal, private decisions. The legacy he leaves behind is one committed to ensuring that all women could make the reproductive-health care decisions that were best for them and their families. As we mourn the loss of this great leader, we are reminded that our work is far from finished. We must continue to advance policies that reflect his shared principles of supporting a woman’s right to choose.”
