NARAL Pro-Choice Nevada Announces Endorsement of Aaron Ford for Attorney General
Las Vegas, Nev. — Today, NARAL Pro-Choice Nevada announced their endorsement of Aaron Ford in his race to become Nevada’s next Attorney General. Ford has consistently fought to expand and defend access to reproductive healthcare for Nevada women, and NARAL’s 38,000 members throughout the Silver State will work tirelessly to make sure he is our next AG.
“Aaron Ford is a proven champion for women and families across Nevada and we are proud to support him in his race for Attorney General,” said Caroline Mello Roberson, State Director of NARAL Pro-Choice Nevada. “During his time in the state Senate, Ford fought to expand access to birth control, maintain barrier free access to preventative services, prenatal care, cancer screenings, and screenings for STD’s. We have no doubt he will defend the right of Nevada women to make their own medical decisions as Attorney General. On the flip side, his likely opponent Wes Duncan has made it clear that he will follow in the footsteps of his predecessor, Adam Laxalt, who has made it his personal mission to attack women’s healthcare at every opportunity.”
“I am humbled and honored to receive the endorsement of NARAL Pro-Choice Nevada,” said Aaron Ford, candidate for NV Attorney General. “The overwhelming number of attacks on women’s access to reproductive care aren’t just coming from the Trump Administration — they are being waged by out-of-touch politicians right here in Nevada. As Attorney General, you have my commitment that I’ll defend the rights of women and families from any and all attacks. I look forward to working with NARAL NV’s 38,000 members to spread our message, run a strong ground game, and win in November.”
NARAL Pro-Choice America and its network of state affiliates are dedicated to protecting and expanding reproductive freedom for all Americans. NARAL works to guarantee that every woman has the right to make personal decisions regarding the full range of reproductive choices, including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and choosing legal abortion. In recognition of its work defending our constitutional right to choose, Fortune Magazine described NARAL as “one of the top 10 advocacy groups in America.”
