NARAL Pro-Choice America today announced its endorsement of Tom Malinowski in his bid to represent New Jersey’s 7th Congressional District.
“Tom Malinowski has a strong record of supporting women’s access to reproductive healthcare and we know he will continue to make our rights a top priority when he’s in Congress,” said Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “Women and families across New Jersey deserve leadership from unapologetically pro-choice fighters like Tom Malinowski and we are proud to support him.”
“I’m proud to have the support of NARAL Pro-Choice America members and share their belief that reproductive rights are human rights,” said Malinowski. “Access to contraception, safe, legal abortion, and providing support for working parents through paid family leave is good for women, families, and our economy,”
Tom Malinowski served on President Clinton’s National Security Council, worked for Human Rights Watch, and served as Assistant Secretary of State under President Obama where he fought to defend the human rights of women and LGBTQ families. During his time at Human Rights Watch and the State Department, Malinowski consistently advocated for women’s rights, from insisting women be included in the peace process in Afghanistan to opposing gender discrimination in Saudi Arabia. He was also one of the leading advocates for funding women-led organizations in Syria that stood up to extremists.
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.”
