Endorsement Event By Nation’s Leading Pro-Choice Advocacy Group Builds Momentum for Key Campaigns Up-and-Down the Ballot in PA

NARAL Pro-Choice America today announced its endorsement of Steve Santarsiero in his campaign for Congress (PA-08). NARAL also announced details of a rally this Saturday in Langhorne, PA, to bring pro-choice voters together to support Steve’s candidacy. Event details are below.

“NARAL is proud to endorse Steve Santarsiero for Congress because he will be the leader we need to defend Americans’ reproductive freedom, including access to safe and legal abortion,” said Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “Steve is a fighter who will get things done for Pennsylvania. Hardworking families across the state want leaders who will fight to create jobs and grow the economy, not spend their time trying to ban abortion and make birth control more expensive. Those aren’t the priorities of Pennsylvanians, but that’s exactly what Steve’s opponent would do if elected. That’s why NARAL is standing with Steve Santarsiero in his campaign for Congress.”

In the Pennsylvania House, Steve Santarsiero stood up for our reproductive rights and relentlessly fought back against anti-choice politicians and their attacks on women’s health. He spoke out against Republican efforts to ban abortion at 20 weeks of pregnancy and stood up to partisan efforts to block insurance plans from covering abortion services. Steve also supports making sure that women receive equal pay for equal work and strongly supports the Paycheck Fairness Act.

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.”
