Statement of Ilyse Hogue, President of NARAL Pro-Choice America:

“After a year of relentless attacks on reproductive rights, we are thrilled that the final budget deal does not include any new attacks on our right to choose — including defunding vital health care facilities like Planned Parenthood. The dangerous rhetoric we have heard from Washington over the last year has only served to make woman seeking to exercise their right to a safe and legal abortion targets. We applaud the leadership of Senators Reid, Murray and Mikulski and thank them, and many of their colleagues, for standing up for women and look forward to the day when our budget has zero riders that restrict reproductive freedom.”

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.”
