NARAL Pro-Choice America Denounces Potential House Deal on the Hyde Amendment
Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, released the following statement:
"We oppose any and all applications of the Hyde amendment. The Hyde amendment restricts millions of American women from accessing their reproductive freedoms. Any bill in Congress that includes the Hyde amendment takes us further and further away from the ideal of all women being able to access abortion care when they need it most. We urge all congressional House members, including Leader Pelosi, who say they stand for women to reject any anti-choice legislation, including Hyde.
And we hold up champions in the Senate who are relentlessly standing firm to protect women against politicians who are obsessed with banning abortion access in America, including those of trafficked women."
