NARAL Pro-Choice America today announced its endorsement of Chrissy Houlahan in her campaign to represent Pennsylvania’s 6th Congressional District. The seat is currently held by an anti-choice Republican Ryan Costello.
“We need people like Chrissy Houlahan in Congress who will fight for women and families and against the extremist anti-choice agenda,” said Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “Chrissy is a mom who cares deeply about advancing gender equality so that women are one day truly equal partners in society. This race is key to establishing a pro-choice majority in the House of Representatives, and we’ll work hard to get her elected.”
“I am proud to receive NARAL’s support and thank them for the work they do to protect women’s rights across Pennsylvania and our nation. The Trump administration and Republicans in Congress want to turn back the clock on women’s health—we cannot let this happen.” said Houlahan. “In Congress, I pledge to fight for women and families and will work to pass paid family and medical leave and fight back against efforts to undermine Roe v Wade.”
Chrissy Houlahan is a veteran with a background in science and technology. She attended Stanford University on an ROTC scholarship and served in the U.S. Air Force. She and her husband Bart live in Chester County where they raised two fiercely independent daughters.
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.”
