Following the news that the Trump administration is yet again attacking reproductive freedom, today rolling out a rule that will make it more difficult for health insurance plans to cover abortion under the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) Health Insurance Marketplaces, NARAL Pro-Choice America Chief Research and Communications Officer Adrienne Kimmell issued the following statement:

“The ultimate goal of the Trump administration and the anti-choice movement is to ban abortion, period. Republicans know that their agenda is unpopular with the vast majority of Americans, so they pull out all the stops to strip away people’s freedom by denying access. This new rule is malicious: It’s intended to confuse people and falls hardest on lower-income women. Regardless of how someone is insured, they should be able to make personal decisions about pregnancy, free from political interference.”


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 2.5 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.
