Washington, DC Today, NARAL Pro-Choice America reaffirmed its support for Rep. Jahana Hayes (CT-05) and disavowed the deceptive practices of her GOP opponent, whose campaign materials falsely suggested support from NARAL. 

NARAL Pro-Choice America President Mini Timmaraju released the following statement: 

“We’ve seen Republican candidates all across the country running from and lying about their position on abortion, but sending deceptive mailers to imply an endorsement that doesn’t exist is a new low. Let’s be clear: There is only one candidate in the CT-05 race who is endorsed by NARAL: Rep. Jahana Hayes. She’s the reproductive freedom champion that Connecticut needs with the record to prove it.”


For over 50 years, NARAL Pro-Choice America has fought to protect and advance reproductive freedom at the federal and state levels—including access to abortion care, birth control, pregnancy and post-partum care, and paid family leave—for every body. NARAL is powered by its 4 million members from every state and congressional district in the country, representing the 8 in 10 Americans who support legal abortion.

Everyone should be able to decide if, when, how, and with whom they start or grow a family.
