NARAL Pro-Choice America Thanks Bernie Sanders for His Commitment to Fighting for Reproductive Freedom

In response to news that Senator Bernie Sanders has dropped out of the race for the Democratic nomination for president, NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue released the following statement:

“Senator Bernie Sanders brought passion, commitment and a valuable perspective to the Democratic primary, engaging people across the country with a bold vision for what the United States could look like. He made clear his commitment to safeguarding reproductive freedom as president, recently releasing a robust and thoughtful plan on reproductive rights, health, and justice. With so much on the line, we’re grateful for the role Sen. Sanders played in elevating the fight for our fundamental rights in this race, and we will double our efforts to make sure these ideas are carried forward.”


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.
