Washington, DC — Today, 20 Democratic governors announced the formation of the Reproductive Freedom Alliance, a coalition committed to protecting and expanding reproductive care in their states. The Alliance will work together to strengthen reproductive freedom in the face of an unprecedented Republican assault on abortion access and other forms of reproductive health care.
NARAL Pro-Choice America President Mini Timmaraju released the following statement in response:
“Anti-choice Republicans are threatening the rights of Americans in every state— no matter where you live, your rights are in danger. This Alliance will counter extremist attacks on reproductive freedom by protecting access and restoring our rights. Right now, nearly 25 million people live in states with bans on abortion in effect; we look forward to working with these governors to ensure folks can get the care they need while expanding access everywhere.”
For over 50 years, NARAL Pro-Choice America has fought to protect and advance reproductive freedom at the federal and state levels—including access to abortion care, birth control, pregnancy and post-partum care, and paid family leave—for every body. NARAL is powered by its 4 million members from every state and congressional district in the country, representing the 8 in 10 Americans who support legal abortion.
