Tom Nelson (WI-08) earns endorsement of nation’s leading pro-choice advocacy group

NARAL Pro-Choice America today announced its endorsement of Tom Nelson, a candidate for Wisconsin’s 8th Congressional District. Tom Nelson is a strong pro-choice advocate who is dedicated to defending reproductive freedom and expanding access to basic reproductive healthcare, including abortion.

“NARAL is proud to endorse Tom Nelson in his campaign for Congress,” said Joel Foster, NARAL Pro-Choice America’s national political director. “Tom is committed to standing up for women and families across Wisconsin. Unfortunately, Tom’s opponent will be just another rubber stamp for congressional Republicans in their effort to ban abortion and limit access to birth control. Hardworking Wisconsin families want their leaders to focus on creating jobs and improving the economy, not on taking endless votes to defund Planned Parenthood like congressional Republicans have done. Those aren’t the priorities of Wisconsin families and they never will be. That’s why NARAL is proud to stand with a strong leader like Tom Nelson, who will always put Wisconsin women and families first.”

Tom Nelson is a strong advocate for women and families and will fight to defend access to basic reproductive healthcare, including abortion. Tom’s opponent, Mike Gallagher, has campaigned on a platform to roll back our reproductive freedom and has been vocal about his opposition to the constitutionally protected right to access abortion.


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