FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 6, 2017
Today, NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue released the following statement in response to Congressional Republicans’ proposal to defund Planned Parenthood and repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA):
“The GOP plan is an insult to the countless Americans who have been marching in the streets, flooding phone lines, and crowding town halls in opposition to an ACA repeal. This new bill is a greatest hits of failed Republican proposals, and put the health care of millions of women and families at risk. In short: this bill is dangerous and does nothing to improve American’s access to quality and affordable medical care.
“The GOP obsession with repealing the ACA and defunding Planned Parenthood is a perilous one that comes with a high cost to the public, and to the GOP’s future in politics. Rest assured that NARAL’s 1.2 million member-activists will stand up to this latest GOP attack on our health care. That’s why NARAL is organizing and mobilizing, to ensure that out-of-touch Republican leaders don’t jeopardize families’ healthcare.”
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.”
