STATEMENT: Maine Rep. Michael Michaud’s Evolution on Choice Earns NARAL Pro-Choice America PAC Endorsement

March 26, 2014

Today, NARAL Pro-Choice America PAC released a statement from NARAL Pro-Choice America president Ilyse Hogue about their recent endorsement of Mike Michaud for Governor of Maine:

“We are proud to endorse Representative Michael Michaud in his campaign to become Maine’s next governor. We’ve gotten to know Rep. Michaud over the years and have been overwhelmed by his commitment to his role as a public servant. His evolution on the issues of reproductive freedom and abortion access comes as a result of taking the time to hear the real stories of women and families who have grappled with these personal decisions in his state. This willingness to listen and put the lives of his constituents ahead of partisan political posturing is exactly what makes Rep. Michaud the perfect choice to lead Maine. With the onslaught of attacks against women’s reproductive freedom in recent years, voters know that it is more important than ever to elect leaders who will protect women’s fundamental rights. NARAL will work to educate Maine voters about Michaud’s strong pro-choice values and why he is the best candidate for the job.”

Rep. Michaud has earned a 100% voting record from NARAL Pro-Choice America in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. NARAL Pro-Choice America has 12,000 member activists in Maine.

In response to NARAL endorsement, Rep. Michaud said:

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.”


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