Washington, DC NARAL Pro-Choice America today announced its endorsement of nine Pennsylvania candidates seeking election to the state legislature in the November 3rd general election. Each candidate on this slate is running to flip seats currently held by anti-choice, anti-freedom Republican incumbents

In the midst of Trump and the Republican Party’s all-out assault on reproductive freedom, it is imperative that we elect these nine reproductive freedom champions to the Pennsylvania legislature,said Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “State legislatures across the country are doing critical work to fight back against anti-choice attacks and these candidates understand what is at stake for reproductive freedom in this election and beyond. We look forward to working together to ensure that Pennsylvanians are free to make their own personal decisions about pregnancy without politicians interfering.”

“We are proud to have NARAL’s endorsement in this pivotal election and we are committed to fighting for Pennsylvanians’ reproductive freedom,” said Representative Leanne Krueger, Pennsylvania House Democratic Campaign Committee Chair. “Up and down the ballot, the stakes in this election are higher than ever before. It is absolutely critical that we flip these Republican-held seats and elect representatives to our legislature who will stand up for Pennsylvanians’ health, values, and fundamental freedoms.”
