The Democratic primary has only one champion for reproductive freedom, and tonight, that champion all but secured the Democratic nomination for president of the United States.
NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue issued the following statement in support of Hillary Clinton after her victories in tonight’s Democratic primaries:
“The Democratic primary has only one champion for reproductive freedom, and tonight, that champion all but secured the Democratic nomination for president of the United States. We could not be more proud of Hillary Clinton for standing strong as a feminist and a reproductive freedom champion who understands and will address the crisis of abortion access in this country. She is the only candidate for the White House who will truly stand up against the anti-choice politicians and their funders who advocate for punishing a woman if she chooses to have an abortion, punishing doctors who provide abortion care, or punishing individuals and entities that work with abortion providers.
“Contrast that record with Donald Trump’s – the likely GOP presidential nominee – misogynistic worldview and the choice couldn’t be more clear for voters in this election. Hillary Clinton spreads love and kindness. She knows we are stronger united than divided. And she knows women make America great again and again. We’re with her.”
