FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 24, 2017
NARAL Senior Vice President Sasha Bruce issued the following statement in response to the latest decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals to allow Jane Doe to receive abortion care:
“The full Court of Appeals finally recognized what we knew all along: this was just another example of egregious overreach by the Trump administration to impose its anti-choice ideology on Americans and roll back reproductive rights. For the anti-choice movement, this was never about Jane Doe’s health. It was about using the courts to impose an out-of-touch agenda on our most vulnerable women.
“Let’s be clear: the Trump administration and the anti-choice GOP will do whatever it takes to ban abortion for all women. They are preying on marginalized, vulnerable women like Jane Doe in order to achieve that goal. Until the Trump administration and anti-choice GOP understand that abortion access is a basic human right, we will keep fighting for women like Jane Doe.”
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.”
