Tonight, NARAL Pro-Choice America released the following statement congratulating its endorsed, pro-choice Montana candidate, Senator Jon Tester for winning his primary.
“Few partners have been as passionately committed to making reproductive rights a reality for all in this country as Jon Tester,” said NARAL Pro-Choice America Political Director Nicole Brener-Schmitz. “Jon Tester has been a steadfast champion for women and families in Montana and beyond. We are proud to support Senator Tester and will mobilize our members to ensure that he wins on November 6th so he can continue to stand up for the rights of all Montanans.”
Jon Tester has been a long-time advocate for women’s rights and reproductive freedom throughout his career starting with his time serving in the Montana State Senate.Tester is currently a sponsor of the Paycheck Fairness Act which would end the gender pay gap and voted against an unnecessary ban that would make it illegal for a woman to access abortion later in pregnancy. Tester has also voted against the repeal of the Affordable Care Act and stood up against attacks on Planned Parenthood.
