Incumbent for New York’s 6th Congressional District Earns Endorsement from Nation’s Leading Pro-Choice Advocacy Group
For Immediate Release: May 9, 2018
NARAL Pro-Choice America today announced its endorsement of Grace Meng in her campaign for re-election to represent New York’s 6th Congressional District.
“Congresswoman Meng is a champion for New York women and families, and we are proud to endorse her re-election to Congress,” said Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “New York women and families deserve someone who will set a standard for what it means to be a champion for reproductive freedom. Grace Meng has done that and we are thrilled to support her.”
“I’m honored to receive NARAL Pro-Choice America’s endorsement,” said Meng. “NARAL is a crucial ally in the fight for women’s reproductive freedom across the country, and I’m proud to fight alongside them.”
Grace Meng has been a passionate champion for women, especially low-income women during her time in Congress. Meng has a 100% pro-choice record during her time in Congress, including votes against an Affordable Care Act repeal and an unconstitutional abortion ban. She recently introduced a bill that would make feminine products more affordable and another bill that would require ingredient labeling for menstrual hygiene products. Meng has been a voice of reason on all women’s issues ranging from female incarceration to breastfeeding rights for mothers.
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.”
