NARAL Statement on Passage of GOP Tax Bill

December 20, 2017

(Washington, DC) — After the House and Senate voted to pass the GOP tax bill, which includes a provision to severely undermine the Affordable Care Act, NARAL Pro-Choice America National Communications Director Kaylie Hanson Long issued the following statement:

“From the very beginning, the GOP used this tax bill to enact their out-of-touch agenda. When given the opportunity to create real change and make life better for hard working women and families across America, they failed. It’s shameful that the GOP instead used the tax bill as a bait and switch to rip healthcare away from millions of people.

“We have seen time and time again that the anti-choice GOP is all too willing to throw women and families under the bus if it means they can score points with their fringe base. As long as elected officials continue to attack our basic human rights, we’ll keep organizing and mobilizing to hold them accountable in 2018.”


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.
