NARAL Pro-Choice America this week endorsed congressional candidate Randy Bryce in his bid to take back Wisconsin’s first district.
Bryce, a Democrat campaigning for the congressional seat held by House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., received the backing of a leading pro-choice advocacy group because of his strong commitment to stand up for women and families.
The statement from NARAL said Bryce's made clear that protecting and expanding women’s access to reproductive health care including abortion is a top priority for him.
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, the statement said.
“For too long Speaker Ryan has cared more about his donors in Washington D.C. than he has the women and families of southeast Wisconsin," said NARAL president Ilyse Hogue. “Now, arm in arm with Donald Trump, he carries out cruel and careless attempts to destroy our healthcare and still has no plan to make our lives better. But Randy has a plan to counter the GOP’s out-of-touch fringe agenda. The momentum Randy is building with his progressive and pro-choice message is proof that people are ready for new leadership."
She continued, "NARAL is proud to endorse Randy Bryce and we look forward to working together to take back the House and stand up for the reproductive freedom of all Americans.”
Bryce responded: “I’m honored to have the endorsement of the members of NARAL Pro-Choice America and I thank Ilyse and her team for their leadership."
He also said, “Women’s rights are human rights, and the ability to choose when and with whom to have children is a core freedom for every American. I look forward to fighting alongside NARAL to make America stronger for every family.”
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.
