Incumbent in California’s 10th Congressional District Earns Endorsement from Nation’s Leading Pro-Choice Advocacy Group
For Immediate Release: May 23, 2019
NARAL Pro-Choice America today announced its endorsement of Congressman Josh Harder in his campaign for re-election to represent California’s 10th Congressional District.
“Congressman Harder has stood up for the women and families of the Central Valley and we’re proud to support his re-election,” said Ilyse Hogue, President of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “Now more than ever, we need advocates like him who will support reproductive freedom and fight back against anti-choice extremists.”
“Important health care decisions are best made between women and their doctors – not Washington politicians,” said Congressman Josh Harder. “I share NARAL’s commitment to protecting people’s right to make their own choices about their bodies without interference from the government. I am proud to receive this endorsement and will continue fighting to protect access to reproductive health care for all Americans.”
Congressman Harder represents parts of California’s Central Valley centered on Modesto and Turlock, where he is originally from. He was elected to Congress in 2018 following a career as a businessman and educator. In Congress, he has stood up for the women and families of the Central Valley and NARAL is committed to re-electing him in 2020.
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.”
