Defeat of anti-choice, anti-freedom Republican candidate Genevieve Collins is a win for Texans and reproductive freedom
Texas — Today, voters in Texas’ 32nd Congressional District reelected NARAL-endorsed incumbent Rep. Colin Allred to the U.S. House of Representatives. Allred’s victory over anti-choice, anti-freedom Republican Genevieve Collins marks a huge win for reproductive freedom and keeps a critical seat in the House.
In response to Allred’s victory, NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue released the following statement:
“We are proud to have endorsed Rep. Colin Allred, a proven champion for reproductive freedom, and congratulate him on winning this critical race. We know that Rep. Allred will continue to be a fierce defender of our fundamental rights in the House of Representatives—and we need elected officials like him now more than ever.”
NARAL endorsed Allred as part of its largest-ever electoral program. The historic program reached over 3 million voters in key states including Texas.
Texas has some of the most severe restrictions on abortion in the United States, including forcing delays before a person can receive abortion care and subjecting patients to mandatory biased counseling. These restrictions disproportionately harm BIPOC, low-income, and rural communities, and are part of a coordinated effort by the Radical Right to maintain white patriarchal control at all costs.

For over 50 years, NARAL Pro-Choice America and its network of state affiliates and chapters have fought to protect and advance reproductive freedom—including access to abortion, contraception, and paid family leave—for every body. NARAL is powered by its more than 2.5 million members from every state and congressional district in the country, representing the 7 in 10 Americans who believe every person should have the freedom to make the best decision for themselves about if, when, and how to raise a family.
