Incumbent in Massachusetts’ 3rd Congressional District Earns Endorsement from Nation’s Leading Pro-Choice Advocacy Group
For Immediate Release: October 4, 2019
NARAL Pro-Choice America today endorsed Representative Lori Trahan in her campaign for re-election to represent Massachusetts’ 3rd Congressional District.
“I am honored to receive the endorsement of NARAL Pro-Choice America for my re-election campaign,” said Trahan. “At a time when women’s reproductive rights are under assault all over the country from state legislatures to the Supreme Court, we are fortunate to have NARAL leading the fight on key women’s issues. 2020 will undoubtedly be an election year where women rise up and make their voices heard loud and clear, and I am excited to be among those strong female voices taking a stand on issues important to women and families.”
“With reproductive freedom under attack by Donald Trump and his anti-choice allies across the country, Massachusetts women and families need strong champions like Lori Trahan to stand up for them and their basic rights,” said Ilyse Hogue, President of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “Lori Trahan came to Congress ready to fight back for reproductive freedom, and she works hard to ensure all Americans can make their own decisions, free from government interference. NARAL proudly endorses her campaign for re-election and looks forward to fighting alongside in her at this critical time for reproductive freedom.”
“Rep. Trahan has repeatedly stood up for reproductive freedom for everyone in the Commonwealth, including by endorsing the ROE Act,” said Rebecca Hart Holder, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts. “She understands that Roe v. Wade is at real risk and now is the time for Massachusetts to act to secure and expand access to abortion care. That’s why I am thrilled that NARAL Pro-Choice America is endorsing Rep. Trahan.”
Lori Trahan is a strong advocate for reproductive freedom who came to Congress ready to work hard on behalf of women and families. In her first few months serving in the U.S. House of Representatives, she co-sponsored legislation to repeal the discriminatory Hyde Amendment and block the Trump administration’s global gag rule that prevents women from knowing their full options about reproductive healthcare. She also signed on to the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would protect women and families from state laws attempting to restrict their ability to make their own decisions about their bodies. Trahan will continue to be a passionate advocate for all Americans’ basic rights and a strong fighter for Massachusetts 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.”
