NARAL slams Trump for sexist “presidential look” comment

September 6, 2016

NARAL Pro-Choice America National Communications Director Kaylie Hanson Long issued the following statement in response to Donald Trump’s remark that Hillary Clinton “doesn’t have a presidential look”:

“Donald Trump can’t see a woman as presidential, but he can see us as ‘pigs’ and ‘dogs.’ He’s spent his entire life confining women to a scale of one to ten, and the policies he supports that limit our reproductive freedom would confine us to only the few roles he finds appropriate for women.

“Here’s what looks presidential: perseverance, compassion, and dedication to making life better for the hardworking women and families of America—all things Hillary Clinton has in abundance and that Donald Trump can’t even seem to muster for one second.”


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