NARAL Endorses Chris Van Hollen for U.S. Senate
Kensington, MD — Today NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue joined voters from across Maryland to announce the group’s endorsement of Chris Van Hollen for U.S. Senate.
“Chris Van Hollen has always been a champion in the fight for our reproductive freedom and NARAL is proud to endorse his campaign for U.S. Senate,” said Ilyse Hogue, President of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “Even though 7-in-10 Americans support safe and legal access to abortion, anti-choice politicians like Chris’ opponent are trying to restrict our families’ access to basic health care. At a time when abortion access is increasingly under attack, whether in the courts or the halls of Congress, we need a champion like Chris Van Hollen fighting for our values in Washington.”
“We need leaders at all levels of government who are dedicated to protecting and advancing reproductive freedom. Maryland is a pro-choice state that has been well served by Congressman Van Hollen’s long history as an advocate of reproductive rights and we are proud to have him representing Marylanders,” said Diana Philip, Executive Director of NARAL Pro-Choice Maryland.
“In my very first campaign for public office, I ran on the ‘Choice’ ticket with the promise to protect a woman’s right to choose — and throughout my time in public service I have worked to keep that promise. We have made important progress, but the GOP continues to wage a war against women’s health. I’m proud to stand with NARAL as we work to expand access for all women in this country. There is so much at stake this election, and I’m honored to have their support,” said Chris Van Hollen.
