NARAL Pro-Choice America today announced its endorsement of Dan Feehan in Minnesota’s 1st Congressional District.

“We need members of Congress like Dan Feehan who will be unapologetic advocates for women and families across Minnesota,” said Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “We know we can count on Dan Feehan to make reproductive freedom a reality for all Minnesotans and we are proud to endorse his campaign for Congress.”

“Personal health care decisions should be left up to an individual and their doctor — not politicians,” said Feehan. “In Congress, I will be a staunch ally in the fight to grant women of all backgrounds equal access to quality care, family planning services and unbiased medical information. We must also champion policies for paid parental leave and insist on protections from pregnancy discrimination in the workplace.”

Dan Feehan served as an active duty soldier in Iraq. When he returned home, he began teaching in elementary and middle schools. Later, he served as an acting Assistant Secretary of Defense in the Pentagon under President Obama. Healthcare is a leading issue in his campaign and as a Congressman, Feehan will fight to ensure that reproductive healthcare is prioritized in the fight for healthcare and reproductive rights.

NARAL’s political program for the 2018 general election is the organization’s largest ever midterm political program to advance candidates fighting for “our values, our future, our vote.” NARAL is investing in diverse candidates up and down the ballot in 19 states, mobilizing members and voters through mail, phones, digital ads, door to door canvassing, TV ads, and rallies that hold anti-choice candidates accountable and lift up pro-choice champions.

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.”

Everyone should be able to decide if, when, how, and with whom they start or grow a family.
