Incumbent in Arizona’s 1st Congressional District Earns Endorsement from Nation’s Leading Pro-Choice Advocacy Group
For Immediate Release: May 8, 2018
NARAL Pro-Choice America today announced its endorsement of Congressman Tom O’Halleran in his campaign for re-election to represent Arizona’s 1st Congressional District.
“Congressman O’Halleran is a fighter for Arizona women and families, and we are proud to endorse his re-election to Congress,” said Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “We need members of Congress like Congressman O’Halleran who will stand up to the extreme anti-choice GOP and be a consistent ally for reproductive freedom.”
“I am grateful to be endorsed by NARAL Pro-Choice America, and will continue to stand with women across Arizona and our country,” said O’Halleran. “Protecting access to healthcare, and maintaining the important relationship between a woman and her doctor will continue to be priorities of mine as I represent Arizona families in Washington.”
While in Congress, O’Halleran voted against an unconstitutional abortion ban, and fought hard to protect access to abortion for women across the country. He has been a vocal advocate for protecting the birth control benefit in the Affordable Care Act, understanding the critical role it plays in allowing women to chart their own futures and destinies.
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.”
