NARAL Pro-Choice America today announced its endorsement of Dan Feehan in Minnesota’s 1st Congressional District.
“We need members of Congress like Dan Feehan who will be unapologetic advocates for women and families across Minnesota,” said Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “We know we can count on Dan Feehan to make reproductive freedom a reality for all Minnesotans and we are proud to endorse his campaign for Congress.”
“Personal health care decisions should be left up to an individual and their doctor — not politicians,” said Feehan. “In Congress, I will be a staunch ally in the fight to grant women of all backgrounds equal access to quality care, family planning services and unbiased medical information. We must also champion policies for paid parental leave and insist on protections from pregnancy discrimination in the workplace.”
Dan Feehan served as an active duty soldier in Iraq. When he returned home, he began teaching in elementary and middle schools. Later, he served as an acting Assistant Secretary of Defense in the Pentagon under President Obama. Healthcare is a leading issue in his campaign and as a Congressman, Feehan will fight to ensure that reproductive healthcare is prioritized in the fight for healthcare and reproductive rights.
