In response to Senator Susan Collins’ interview Sunday with Jake Tapper, in which she said she would not support a nominee who would be hostile to Roe v. Wade, NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue issued the following statement:

“We believe President Trump. Senator Collins, don’t you?”

In October 2016, Donald Trump said he will pick Supreme Court justices who will overturn Roe v. Wade.

In July 2016, Mike Pence said that if Trump wins, “we’ll see Roe v. Wade consigned to the ash heap of history where it belongs.”


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.
