September, 2020 – Hartford, CT At a moment where national politicians and anti-choice extremists continue the assault on reproductive rights, NARAL Pro-Choice Connecticut, Inc. is proud to endorse pro-choice candidates running for office in the State House and Senate. Reproductive freedom is intimately entwined with economic security, and these candidates all recognize the importance of ensuring everyone in Connecticut can access the essential reproductive health care they need. Through the work of these endorsed candidates, we look forward to continuing our forward momentum on reproductive freedom, gender equity, and reducing health disparities.

“As we face an unprecedented threat to Roe v. Wade NARAL Pro-Choice Connecticut is committed to defending all that Justice Ginsburg stood for,” said Liz Gustafson, State Director of NARAL Pro-Choice Connecticut. “We are so proud to have endorsed a strong slate of pro-choice candidates who will fight for all of our rights here in our state. “It is Connecticut’s responsibility to push back against a nationwide attempt to undermine our rights and our freedoms, and ensure each individual in our state regardless of race, gender identity, sexuality, immigration or economic status can access the essential reproductive health care they need. The candidates endorsed by NARAL Pro-Choice Connecticut, Inc. will help us work towards this goal.”
