NARAL Response to Reports of Deal on Gorsuch

March 22, 2017

Ilyse Hogue, President of NARAL Pro-Choice America, issued the following statement in response to reports of a deal to confirm Neil Gorsuch:

“The idea that Democrats want to cut a deal with Republicans and the Trump Administration for a lifetime seat on the Supreme Court – at the same time that more and more details are revealing an FBI criminal investigation that could shake this administration to its core – is unreal and beyond shameful. These senators have no mandate to trade away our rights and our freedoms in the name of political expediency.

“Neil Gorsuch is more conservative than Justice Scalia and will betray the rights of women, LGBTQ people, and workers. Any deal with Republicans to put him on the bench would not only endanger a generation worth of progress but be politically stupid for Democrats. I can’t think of a less strategic move for a Democratic senator.”

NARAL Pro-Choice America is leading the People’s Defense, a massive grassroots campaign with actions planned in all 50 states to defeat Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court. Read more about the campaign here.

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.
