In response to reports that Republicans are dumping money into the Democratic primary in North Carolina to try to ensure Sen. Thom Tillis’ (R-NC) re-election, NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue and NARAL Pro-Choice North Carolina Executive Director Tara Romano released the following statement:

“These types of dirty tricks are despicable. North Carolinians deserve a voice in Congress who reflects their values of reproductive freedom and of democracy. North Carolinians also deserve transparent campaigns that allow them to fairly choose the candidate that best represents their values, not manipulative tactics designed to deceive. Let’s be clear: North Carolinians deserve a champion for reproductive freedom in the U.S. Senate. Thom Tillis, an anti-choice Trump acolyte, has no business representing the great state of North Carolina.”




NARAL Pro-Choice America and its network of state affiliates and chapters are dedicated to protecting and expanding reproductive freedom for all. For more than 50 years, NARAL has worked 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. Since 1969, NARAL has made history, grown to over 2.5 million members, and met the moments that have defined this fight with action, power and freedom.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.”
