NARAL statement on NH primary results
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 9, 2016
In response to tonight’s results in the New Hampshire presidential primary, NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue issued the following statement:
“Hillary Clinton is a trailblazer. She has led by being out front and taking the hits in order to clear the path for the rest of us. She has dedicated her life to the values that make our country great and we are as proud as ever to stand with her as she continues to defend our reproductive freedoms and empower American women to achieve success.
“The agenda pushed by the top finishers in tonight’s GOP primary tell a different story. Whether it’s Donald Trump’s disrespect for women and zealous drive to defund Planned Parenthood, or John Kasich’s long history of undermining our right to choose, the leading Republican presidential candidates have pushed an extreme, anti-choice ideology that undercuts the values shared by seven in ten Americans. The GOP candidates may try to hide their extreme positions as they advance through the primary, but NARAL Pro-Choice America and our one million members across the country will continue to hold them accountable for their dangerous and out-of-touch agenda.”
