FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Portland, OR -- In the days following Bud Pierce's controversial remarks on domestic violence, NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon PAC has endorsed Governor Kate Brown in the 2016 gubernatorial race. In their endorsement, NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon PAC cited Governor Brown's long history of fighting to protect women and promote women's access to reproductive health services:
"Governor Kate Brown has been a lifelong champion for women, women’s health and reproductive rights,” said NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon Executive Director, Michele Stranger-Hunter. "Oregon citizens have proven with their vote time and again that we do not stand for contentious or coercive policies which threaten women’s constitutional rights. Oregonians need to know there is only one pro-choice candidate for governor, and it’s Governor Kate Brown. She not only has the record that people can trust, but she is someone who deeply understands that our fight for women's reproductive health rights isn’t over.” (view full endorsement here)
"I am honored to have NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon’s endorsement in this race,” said Governor Brown. "I started my career as a legal advocate for vulnerable women and children, and I have been fighting for Oregon families ever since. One of the most important ways we can help women and families thrive in Oregon is by ensuring access to the reproductive care they want and need without barriers. NARAL has done outstanding work to educate communities, legislators and voters about the importance of reproductive choice, and helped protect access to safe, legal abortions without restrictions."
"I look forward to continuing to serve as Oregon’s governor and as an advocate for women in our state," Governor Brown added.
