In a victory for Wisconsin women and families, NARAL Pro-Choice America congratulated pro-choice champions Sen. Tammy Baldwin and Randy Bryce for winning their primaries.

“When candidates proudly stand up for reproductive rights, they win. We saw that once again tonight with victories by unapologetic pro-choice champions Senator Tammy Baldwin and Randy Bryce,” said NARAL Pro-Choice America Political Director, Nicole Brener-Schmitz. “We know Baldwin and Bryce will continue fighting until reproductive freedom is a reality for all Wisconsinites and we look forward to ensuring they are victorious on November 6th.”

“For too long extreme legislators like Scott Walker and Paul Ryan have had free reign to play politics with the reproductive healthcare of Wisconsin women and families. No more,” said NARAL Pro-Choice Wisconsin Board Chair, Eileen Zeiger. “NARAL members and volunteers across Wisconsin are fired up and ready to make sure that leaders like Baldwin and Bryce who never compromise on the rights of women and families win this November.”

Tammy Baldwin believes that every woman deserves the freedom to make her own, personal decisions about her health care, her family, and her body. And she knows that choice isn’t just about vital health care options and women’s health care rights, because having control over the decision of when to have children, and how many to have, greatly affects women’s economic prosperity. When women do better, our economy does better as a whole. That’s why Tammy is committed to fighting against dangerous efforts to roll back progress, like weakening ACA rules requiring employer-provided health plans to cover birth control. She also introduced the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would protect a woman’s right to safe and legal abortion by ending laws intended to restrict reproductive health services for women.

As a veteran, iron worker, father, and cancer survivor, few people have a better understanding of the issues hardworking Americans face today than Randy Bryce. Randy Bryce received the backing of the nation’s leading pro-choice advocacy group because of his strong commitment to stand up for women and families. He’s made clear that protecting and expanding women’s access to reproductive healthcare including abortion is a top priority for him.

NARAL’s political program for the 2018 general election is the organization’s largest ever midterm political program to advance candidates fighting for “our values, our future, our vote.” NARAL is investing in diverse candidates up and down the ballot in 19 states, mobilizing members and voters through mail, phones, digital ads, door to door canvassing, TV ads, and rallies that hold anti-choice candidates accountable and lift up pro-choice champions.

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.
