NARAL statement on offensive Kellyanne Conway comments

August 30, 2016

NARAL Pro-Choice America National Communications Director Kaylie Hanson Long issued the following response to Trump Campaign Manager Kellyanne Conway’s comments that “rape would not exist” if women were “physiologically as strong as men”:

“Another day, another offensive, outrageous moment from Team Trump. This Todd Akin moment from Kellyanne Conway reveals yet another example of how out of touch and disgusting the Trump campaign is, starting with its candidate. Combine Donald Trump’s misogynistic rhetoric and policies with senior advisers like Steve Bannon, Roger Ailes, and even Mike Pence—who have all built their careers on demeaning women or worse—and you’ve got a recipe for disaster in the White House.”


Everyone should be able to decide if, when, how, and with whom they start or grow a family.
