NARAL Pro-Choice America Denounces Potential House Deal on the Hyde Amendment

March 20, 2015

Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, released the following statement:

“We oppose any and all applications of the Hyde amendment. The Hyde amendment restricts millions of American women from accessing their reproductive freedoms. Any bill in Congress that includes the Hyde amendment takes us further and further away from the ideal of all women being able to access abortion care when they need it most. We urge all congressional House members, including Leader Pelosi, who say they stand for women to reject any anti-choice legislation, including Hyde.

And we hold up champions in the Senate who are relentlessly standing firm to protect women against politicians who are obsessed with banning abortion access in America, including those of trafficked women.”

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.
