In response to anti-choice Democrat Rep. Henry Cuellar’s new television ad against progressive, pro-choice Democratic challenger Jessica Cisneros, NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue issued the following statement: 

“Congressman Cuellar’s anti-choice views are on full display as he pulls this latest dishonest trick out of the anti-choice playbook. In this desperate and miscalculated move, he is also illustrating to the voters of Texas’ 28th congressional district exactly why Jessica Cisneros is the champion who should replace him in Congress. She understands that women, not politicians, should be the ones making 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.
