NARAL Pro-Choice America today announced its endorsement of Congresswoman Annie Kuster in her campaign for re-election to represent New Hampshire’s 2nd Congressional District.
“Congresswoman Kuster is a fighter for New Hampshire women and families, and we are proud to endorse her re-election to Congress,” said Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “We need people in Congress who will put the health, safety, and economic security of women and families first. That’s what Congresswoman Kuster has done for her constituents in the Granite State and we look forward to helping her win again.”
“Sadly the fight for the freedom of women to make their own reproductive healthcare decisions is far from over,” said Congresswoman Annie Kuster. “In Washington, in New Hampshire, and across the country we continue to see efforts by Republicans to come between a woman, her family, and her doctor. As an adoption attorney for 25 years, I know how personal and difficult the decisions faced by young women and families can be and I’m committed to ensuring that women have the right to do what’s in the best interest of their health and their family without government interference. I’m honored to receive the endorsement of NARAL Pro-Choice America and will continue fighting efforts to rollback the progress we have made.”
Kuster is the DCCC Frontline Chair. During her time in Congress, Kuster has consistently worked to defend and advance reproductive freedom. She has a 100% pro-choice rating from NARAL, and has been a vocal opponent of defunding Planned Parenthood while repeatedly fighting to preserve their funding. Kuster is an outspoken champion for access to birth control, voting against the repeal of the ACA birth control benefit. She has also spoken out against the reinstatement of the global gag rule, and the the elimination of Title X Rule protecting family planning services from state attacks.
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.”
