Candidate for New Mexico Governor Wins Endorsement From Nation’s Leading Pro-Choice Advocacy Group
NARAL Pro-Choice America today announced its endorsement of Michelle Lujan Grisham in her campaign for Governor of New Mexico.
“Congresswoman Lujan Grisham has been a steadfast champion for New Mexico women and families in Congress, and we could not be more proud to endorse her candidacy for Governor,” said Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “With the onslaught of attacks on women's health at the state level, it is more important than ever to elect champions to protect our access to care. Congresswoman Lujan Grisham has always been a leader and we know she will continue to put New Mexico’s women and families first in the Governor’s mansion.”
"NARAL Pro-Choice America is an incredible organization that has advocated for women’s reproductive rights for years, and it is an honor to have the endorsement,” said Lujan Grisham. “As Governor, I will fight tirelessly to protect New Mexico women’s access to reproductive healthcare. It is my promise to every woman in New Mexico that they will have the resources they need to make the healthcare decisions that are right for themselves and their families. That’s my commitment as governor, just like it has been throughout my entire career serving New Mexicans."
As a congresswoman, Michelle Lujan Grisham has been leading the fight against the repeated attacks on women's health by the GOP. From co-sponsoring bills to protect access to birth control to speaking out against state legislature bills, like an abortion ban in Texas that would make it illegal for a woman to access abortion later in pregnancy, Lujan Grisham has been an outspoken advocate for reproductive freedom.
