FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 3, 2016
NARAL Pro-Choice America PAC today announced its endorsement of Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick in her campaign for U.S. Senate. Kirkpatrick is challenging anti-choice incumbent Sen. John McCain.
“We are proud to stand with Ann Kirkpatrick as she takes on Sen. McCain’s extreme, anti-woman agenda and seeks to be the leader that Arizonan women and families deserve,” said Sasha Bruce, senior vice president for campaigns and strategy at NARAL Pro-Choice America. “Ann Kirkpatrick will not only make history as the first woman elected to the U.S. Senate in Arizona, but she will also continue to lead with her values and stand up for women and families across the state. For far too long, Arizonans have had to put up with politicians who push extreme, anti-choice agendas in order to advance their extreme ideology. Ann Kirkpatrick is running because she knows Arizonans deserve a leader who reflects their priorities and we couldn’t be more proud to support her campaign for Senate.”
“The stakes have never been higher for women across Arizona and the nation. Candidates up and down the ballot are threatening to roll back progress on equal pay, paid family leave, and protecting women’s choice. I am proud to stand with NARAL in their important work for families everywhere, and I will never waver in our fight to ensure personal medical decisions are between a woman and her doctor—not the government,” said Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick.
With her perfect pro-choice voting record and consistent support for women and families, Kirkpatrick is a steadfast ally in the fight for our reproductive freedom. She has fought against GOP efforts to defund Planned Parenthood and worked to ensure access to basic reproductive health care services, including abortion. Her opponent, incumbent Sen. John McCain, has done the opposite and has a long record of pushing anti-choice policies.
