NARAL Statement on the Women's March on Washington

Today, NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue issued the following statement in support of the Women’s March on Washington. NARAL Pro-Choice America and its one million member activists are proud to officially sponsor the march in January.

"We are so thrilled to sponsor the Women's March on Washington. The grassroots activism fueling the march is extraordinary and sends a clear message to the Trump administration: We will not stand down in the face of attacks on our fundamental rights, and we will hold anti-choice and anti-woman politicians accountable. I am in awe of and humbled by the diversity of the movement that has made this march happen. It’s a true testament to the power of our collective experience and to the fact that we can engage in a conversation that acknowledges our unique identities while joining together to demand equality and freedom. March on."

NARAL Pro-Choice America and its network of state affiliates are dedicated to protecting and expanding reproductive freedom for all Americans. NARAL works 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. 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."
