NARAL blasts Rubio claim that Equal Rights Amendment for women isn’t needed anymore

September 22, 2016

NARAL Pro-Choice America released the following statement in response to Marco Rubio’s recent comment that we don’t need the the Equal Rights Amendment for women anymore:

“What’s ‘outdated’, and actually dangerous, is Marco Rubio’s positions on policies that help women and families. He doesn’t believe a woman should have access to abortion for any reason, even if she is a survivor of rape or incest, or infected with Zika. In his world, he’s the decider of what women can or can’t do with their bodies, and their futures. Floridians deserve a senator who trusts women to make our own decisions. That person is Patrick Murphy.”

NARAL Pro-Choice America has taken out ads in Florida against Marco Rubio for his offensive stance on abortion access and women’s rights, especially in light of the Zika crisis. You can view the most recent television ad here, and digital ads here.


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