NARAL Pro-Choice America today announced its endorsement of Susan Wild in her bid to represent Pennsylvania’s 7th Congressional District.
“Supporting women’s access to reproductive healthcare will be a top priority for Susan Wild when she’s in Congress,” said Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “Susan is a passionate fighter for women and families in Pennsylvania and we know we can trust her to bring that fight to Congress.”
“I’m honored to have the support of NARAL,” said Susan Wild. “I’m proud to say I’m 100% pro-choice and in Congress I will always protect a women’s right to choose and oppose any efforts to reduce or eliminate contraceptive coverage from healthcare. We need leaders who will stand up to Donald Trump and Republicans who try to take away women’s healthcare and Pennsylvania women can count on me.”
Standing up for women’s rights is one of Susan Wild’s core principles. As the only female candidate out of eight on the 7th District primary ballot, she does not take her role as an advocate or defender of women’s reproductive rights lightly. As an attorney, Wild recognizes the importance of Roe v. Wade as she defends women’s reproductive freedom and stands up for women’s health on all fronts. She will continue to fight to close the gender wage gap, strengthen workplace protections for women and advocate for paid parental leave.
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.”
