Key Takeaway from Tonight’s Joint Session: Donald Trump Is No Friend to Women and Families

February 28, 2017

Ahead of tonight’s joint session, NARAL Pro-Choice America National Communications Director Kaylie Hanson Long issued the following statement:

“Donald Trump can push his alternative facts all he wants, but the truth remains clear: he is no friend to women and families. It’s only been a month, and his anti-woman, anti-equality agenda has already earned the status as an historically unpopular president. That’s why Americans are taking to the streets, showing up to town halls, and calling on their representatives to oppose his dangerously out-of-touch agenda. We deserve better than a president who’s made it his mission to roll back our reproductive freedom and obstruct the progress we’ve made for equality and basic freedoms in this country.”

NARAL Pro-Choice America and its network of state affiliates are dedicated to protecting and expanding reproductive freedom for all Americans. NARAL works to guarantee that every woman has the right to make personal decisions regarding the full range of reproductive choices, including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and choosing legal abortion. In recognition of its work defending our constitutional right to choose, Fortune Magazine described NARAL as “one of the top 10 advocacy groups in America.”


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