At the conclusion of tonight’s Senate debate in Los Angeles, NARAL Pro-Choice California praised California Attorney General Kamala Harris as the champion we need to fight for reproductive freedom. NARAL has endorsed Kamala Harris in what is the first open Senate race in California in more than two decades.

“Once again, Kamala Harris demonstrated why she is the true champion for California women and families,” said Amy Everitt, state director of NARAL Pro-Choice California. “Kamala understands that access to abortion is integral to women’s dignity and equality. She made clear that a just society does not let a woman’s income dictate her access to reproductive health care. She understands that our economic security is tied to our ability to decide if and when to start a family.”

“Kamala Harris has a proven and powerful record of fighting for dignity and respect for all Californians. She is the leader we need in DC.”

NARAL Pro-Choice California urged the debate sponsors to #AskAboutAbortion in the only debate between the two Senate candidates. The effort is tied to the highly successful, nationwide digital campaign led by NARAL Pro-Choice America during the presidential debates to encourage moderators to ask a question about abortion. The campaign reached over 26 million Twitter users.
