NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts Endorses
State Representative Pam Richardson for Reelection
Boston, MA – Today, NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts — the leading statewide advocate for privacy and a woman’s right to choose — announced its endorsement of State Representative Pam Richardson of the 6th Middlesex District for reelection.
“NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts is very proud to endorse State Representative Pam Richardson,” said Andrea Miller, the organization’s Executive Director. “Representative Richardson has been a steadfast pro-choice voice at the State House and in her district, and we applaud her clear commitment to protecting privacy and promoting reproductive health.”
“I am honored to have the backing of NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts,” said Richardson, “As State Representative, I have demonstrated my support for reproductive rights, and I pledge to continue to be a strong advocate for women’s health, safety, and reproductive freedom.”
Miller added, “In the spring of 2007, the United States Supreme Court issued a devastating decision that upheld a ban on safe, medically appropriate abortion methods which makes no exception to protect a woman’s health. With the right to choose so under attack at the federal level, we need state legislators who will stand up for women’s ability to make personal, private decisions about pregnancy and childbirth here in Massachusetts, including protecting safe, legal abortion and improving access to birth control.”
“NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts is committed to doing all that we can to safeguard reproductive freedom for women in Massachusetts. One of the best things voters can do this year is to support candidates who do the same, which is why we are urging this district to reelect pro-choice Representative Pam Richardson,” Miller concluded.
NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts is the driving force behind the election of many pro-choice state legislative candidates. The organization provides direct assistance to candidates, mobilizes its pro-choice grassroots base in targeted districts, trains candidates and volunteers, and produces and distributes a pro-choice Voters’ Guide.
