Governor Strickland Endorsed By NARAL Pro-Choice America PAC
NARAL Pro-Choice America PAC today announced its endorsement of Gov. Ted Strickland in Ohio’s U.S. Senate race.
“Ted Strickland is a proven fighter for our reproductive freedom and for the safe and legal access to abortion that is supported by seven in ten Americans,” said Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “Ted is committed to defending Americans’ constitutional right to access abortion and to ensuring all women have access to the full range of reproductive health options. He has stood up to the partisan smear campaigns waged against Planned Parenthood and the families across Ohio who receive quality, affordable care through its doors. At a time when our reproductive freedom is under increasing attack from all levels, Ted Strickland is the fighter that Ohio families need and we are proud to endorse his campaign for Senate.”
“Ted Strickland is a champion for women and families,” said Kellie Copeland, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio. “He understands the connection between accessible women’s health care, including abortion, and economic opportunity for working families. He believes birth control is a decision between a woman and her doctor, not between a woman and her boss. As governor, Ted worked to stop funding for harmful abstinence-only programs that do not serve Ohio teens. As Rob Portman and the Republican majority in the U.S. Senate obstruct the appointment of a Supreme Court justice, it is painfully obvious we need Ted Strickland standing up for Ohioans.”
