NARAL VIDEO: Michael Boggs Can’t Be Trusted


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Today, NARAL Pro-Choice America released the video “Michael Boggs Can’t Be Trusted.” Said NARAL President Ilyse Hogue:“Despite Michael Boggs trying to run from his record with his submission to the Judiciary Committee yesterday, his answers to the Senators’ questions only underscored the disturbing fact that Americans can’t expect this nominee to put forward a consistent story about his troubling history. By now, it’s clear that Boggs’ record–a record he ran for judge on–and his statements in his confirmation hearings lays bare a frightening pattern of disregarding fundamental equality of women, LGBT people, and African Americans. That alone should disqualify him for a lifetime appointment to the federal bench. We applaud Judiciary Committee members Sens. Franken and Durbin for publicly committing to vote against Boggs and urge members of the committee to join them, state your opinion publicly, and reject this unfit nominee.”

NARAL Pro-Choice America and its network of state affiliates are dedicated to protecting and expanding reproductive freedom for all Americans. NARAL works to guarantee that every woman has the right to make personal decisions regarding the full range of reproductive choices, including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and choosing legal abortion. In recognition of its work defending our constitutional right to choose, Fortune Magazine described NARAL as “one of the top 10 advocacy groups in America.”
