Candidate in New York’s 22nd Congressional District Earns Endorsement from Nation’s Leading Pro-Choice Advocacy Group
For Immediate Release: March 2, 2018
NARAL Pro-Choice America today announced its endorsement of Anthony Brindisi in New York’s 22nd Congressional District. The seat is currently held by a first-term anti-choice Republican, and is considered a toss-up by the Cook Political Report.
“We need champions for reproductive freedom like Anthony Brindisi in Congress,” said Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “As a member of New York’s Pro-Choice Legislative Caucus, Anthony has fought for the basic idea that women should be trusted to make our own healthcare decisions. He understands that’s key to gender equality, and that’s why we’re proud to support him as a Man for Choice. This race is key to establishing a pro-choice majority in the House of Representatives, and we’ll fight hard to see him elected.”
“I am proud to receive the endorsement of NARAL Pro-Choice America,” said Brindisi. “I have been an advocate for women’s reproductive health rights my entire career. NARAL Pro-Choice America has been committed to supporting and protecting a woman’s fundamental right to choose for years, and I look forward to working with them throughout my campaign for Congress and once I am elected.”
Brindisi has been a strong advocate for women and their reproductive rights his entire career. He is a member of the New York State Bipartisan Pro-Choice Legislative Caucus and has consistently voted in favor of legislation supporting reproductive health care and reproductive health care rights in New York.
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.”
