Incumbent in New York’s 14th Congressional District Earns Endorsement from Nation’s Leading Pro-Choice Advocacy Group
For Immediate Release: May 9, 2018
“Congressman Crowley has been a champion for New York women and families, and we are proud to endorse his re-election to Congress,” said Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “Women and families deserve someone who is unafraid to stand up to threats to our basic rights. Congressman Crowley has always been a voice we can count on to put protecting our reproductive freedom first and we are thrilled to support him.”
“The basic rights and freedoms women have fought so hard to secure are under attack from President Trump and congressional Republicans,” said Crowley. “We must stand together to fight back against all attempts to limit access to birth control, restrict women’s right to make their own health care decisions or impede the full and equal participation of women in the workforce. I’m honored to have the support of NARAL Pro-Choice America, and promise to continue using my voice to advocate for Queens and Bronx women and families.”
Congressman Crowley has been a pro-choice champion and an unwavering voice in the fight to protect access to birth control and abortion. He was an outspoken critic of the anti-choice legislation brought to the House floor, such as the Republican healthcare bill, and is a consistent pro-choice vote and ally in Congress. Amidst the constant legislation aimed at preventing women from accessing basic reproductive healthcare, Crowley has been crucial in facilitating a dialogue around issues of reproductive healthcare and freedom.
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.”
