In response to the Kansas Supreme Court ruling guaranteeing abortion rights at the state level, NARAL Vice President Adrienne Kimmell released the following statement:

“This ruling from the Kansas Supreme Court reaffirms what we know to be true: every woman deserves the right to determine if, when, and how to start a family. We applaud the court’s decision to uphold this fundamental right at the state level, which sends a clear message that anti-choice politicians’ unconstitutional attacks on women and families will not stand up in court. We celebrate the tireless work of our partners at the Center for Reproductive Rights that led to this victory for women across Kansas.”

NARAL Pro-Choice America and its network of state affiliates and chapters are dedicated to protecting and expanding reproductive freedom for all. For more than 50 years, NARAL has worked 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. Since 1969, NARAL has made history, grown to over 2 million members, and met the moments that have defined this fight with action, power and freedom.  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.
