Incumbent in Arizona’s 1st Congressional District Earns Endorsement from Nation’s Leading Pro-Choice Advocacy Group
For Immediate Release: June 10, 2019
NARAL Pro-Choice America today announced its endorsement of Congressman Tom O’Halleran in his campaign for re-election to represent Arizona’s 1st Congressional District.
“Congressman Tom O’Halleran has stood up for reproductive freedom in Congress, and now we’re proud to stand with him,” said Ilyse Hogue, President of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “We need strong allies like Congressman O’Halleran to fight back against Donald Trump and Republicans’ extreme attacks on our fundamental rights. That’s why we’re endorsing his re-election to Congress to make sure that Arizona women and families continue to have a proven fighter in their corner.”
“I am grateful to be endorsed by NARAL Pro-Choice America, and will continue to stand with women across Arizona and our country,” said Congressman O’Halleran. “Protecting access to healthcare, and maintaining the important relationship between a woman and her doctor will continue to be priorities of mine as I represent Arizona families in Washington.”
Congressman O’Halleran is a strong fighter for reproductive freedom who has earned a 100% rating from NARAL Pro-Choice America ever since he was first elected to Congress in 2016. While in Congress, O’Halleran voted against an unconstitutional abortion ban, and fought hard to protect access to abortion for women across the country. He has stood up to Republican attacks on the Affordable Care Act and fought to protects its provisions related to access to birth control.

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.”
