NARAL on National Abortion Provider Appreciation Day

March 10, 2017

In recognition of National Abortion Provider Appreciation Day, NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue released the following statement:

“Today we celebrate the fearless health providers across the country who always put the well-being of women first. Amidst unprecedented threats to our reproductive freedom, these providers work every day to ensure that women across the country continue to have access to critical health services, including abortion. Their vital work helps women determine their own destinies, and to choose if, when, and with whom to raise a family. The unfortunate history of violence and intimidation that many abortion providers have faced as they practiced their care is all the more reason to celebrate these courageous individuals. That’s why today we thank abortion providers for all the work they do to support women, our families, and the communities we call home.”

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.
