NARAL Pro-Choice America Endorses Congresswoman Barbara Lee For Democratic Caucus Chair

At This Critical Moment Barbara Lee Is The Champion We Need As Head Of Democratic Caucus

For Immediate Release: November 19, 2018

NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue issued the following statement on the organization’s endorsement of Barbara Lee for Democratic Caucus Chair:

“Congresswoman Barbara Lee is a fierce, tireless, and highly effective champion for women and families. At a time when our most fundamental rights and freedoms are under attack daily from Donald Trump and his allies in Congress, it is vital to have a champion like Barbara Lee leading the Democratic Caucus. From the moment she stepped foot in Congress, twenty years ago, she has worked every day to fight for and advance policies that uplift all women and families, cosponsoring bills and spending time with advocates strategizing about how to advance our collective human rights. She is a proven leader and we’re thrilled to support her. We look forward to working with her as she helps lead Democrats in the next Congress and beyond.”

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.
