For Immediate Release: October 15, 2018
NARAL Pro-Choice America today announced its endorsement of Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema in her campaign for the United States Senate in Arizona.
“Kyrsten Sinema has fought hard for women’s reproductive rights in Congress and she will do the same in the Senate,” said Ilyse Hogue, President of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “Arizona women and families deserve a pro-choice advocate who will never stop fighting for women’s basic reproductive freedoms. NARAL is proud to endorse her campaign and we look forward to helping her win this November.”
“I’m grateful to stand with NARAL members as we work to give Arizona families a voice in the U.S. Senate,” said Kyrsten Sinema. “Together, we’re fighting for quality, affordable health care for all Arizonans. Arizona women, their families, and their doctors should make their health care decisions — not Washington politicians. There’s so much on the line in this election. Arizonans are excited to vote and stand up for our shared values.”
Kyrsten Sinema is well on her way to becoming the next U.S. Senator from Arizona. Sinema previously served in both chambers of the AZ State Legislature. During her public service in Arizona, Sinema passed legislation to increase penalties on sex traffickers and empower law enforcement to crack down on predators. She also worked tirelessly to expand critically important AMBER Alert system and led a bipartisan effort to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act.
In the Senate, Sinema will vote for continued funding of women’s health clinics like Planned Parenthood and will fight to ensure access to quality, affordable health care. We know that Kyrsten is the needed pro-choice advocate for Arizonans. Her campaign recently launched “Women for Sinema,” a coalition of Arizona women standing with Kyrsten because of her strong record fighting for Arizona women and families.
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.”
