NARAL's Statement On Donald Trump's Election

From Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America::
Donald Trump’s vision for America and the policies he has proposed are a clear and present danger to women, our bodies, and our freedoms. Our charge every day is to work to ensure President-Elect Trump cannot strip away our freedoms, our rights, and our ability to chart our own destiny. And while we are disappointed, we are equally proud of Hillary Clinton, of her campaign, and of her lifetime of service to others. All Americans can be proud of the campaign she ran and the principles she stands for. Just like Hillary, we believe that America's diversity is part of our strength and that we as a nation are always stronger together.

We know the fight for our values isn't won or lost in a single election. NARAL was founded before Roe, before legal abortion was even possible in the United States. We as an organization and as a progressive movement exist to fight for the dignity and equality of all Americans. We hold the line--in good times and in bad--to defend the freedoms that are enshrined in our constitution and that define what it means to be American.That mission is as urgent today as it has ever been.

Seven in 10 Americans believe in legal abortion, and we'll continue to be their voice and advocates. We will keep fighting for the values of trust and dignity that are at the core of the freedoms that Americans hold most dear.
Donate to NARAL.
It's important.
