NARAL Pro-Choice America today announced its endorsement of Sen. Debbie Stabenow in her campaign for re-election to represent Michigan in the U.S. Senate.
“Senator Stabenow has been a passionate leader on the frontlines to protect our basic reproductive rights and we are proud to endorse her re-election to the U.S. Senate,” said Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “With the onslaught of attacks on our rights at the hands of the Trump administration and the GOP, now more than ever we need leaders like Senator Stabenow who will fight back against the GOP’s obsession with eroding our rights and who will stand up for women and families across Michigan and beyond.”
“Health care isn’t political–it’s personal,” said Stabenow. “I want to thank NARAL for their wonderful endorsement and for our work together to ensure women have access to the care they need.”
Debbie Stabenow made history in 2000 when she became the first woman from Michigan elected to the United States Senate. Throughout her career, she has broken down barriers for women and become one of Michigan’s and our country’s most influential and accomplished leaders. Senator Stabenow is a national leader of the effort to make sure people have quality, affordable health care, including access to a full range of reproductive health services. During the debate over health care reform, she made sure that maternity coverage was included as an essential benefit. She is a true fighter for Michigan and for all women and families.
