NARAL Pro-Choice America Responds to U.S. House GOP Electing Rep. Kevin McCarthy as Speaker

Washington, DC Today, after 14 failed votes and days of chaos on the floor, Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives elected Rep. Kevin McCarthy as speaker.

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

“Kevin McCarthy, Jim Jordan—it makes no difference to us. No matter who holds the gavel, every single member of the House GOP majority opposes what 8 in 10 Americans support: the right to abortion. Our mission remains the same: To restore the right to abortion in all 50 states and expand reproductive freedom. Speaker McCarthy, don’t get too comfortable on the dais. Voters are watching.” 

### 

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.
