NARAL Congratulates Doug Jones on His Victory in the Alabama Senate Race

December 12, 2017

After Democrat Doug Jones won the special election to fill the open U.S. Senate seat in Alabama, NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue issued the following statement:

“Doug Jones’ victory offers hope not just for Alabama but for our country. Doug Jones is walking proof that candidates can run and win without sacrificing the core values we stand for as a party, the values that American women and families depend on us to uphold.

“And the contrast in this race could not have been starker. Faced between losing a Senate seat and backing a known pedophile, GOP leaders chose the latter. But now, their time is up. That a Democrat will now represent Alabama in the U.S. Senate couldn’t be a clearer sign that the tides are turning. Republicans running in 2018: we’ll see you at the ballot box.”

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.
