NARAL Applauds Champion For Choice Aaron Ford For Standing Up For Women and Families
Despite Constant Attacks From Wes Duncan,the GOP and Their Allies,Ford Stands Strong for the Rights of All Nevadans
Last week, candidate for Nevada Attorney General, Aaron Ford was attacked by Wes Duncan and his anti-choice allies for standing up for a woman’s right to make her own reproductive healthcare decisions. Duncan has made attacking women’s reproductive freedom the centerpiece of his campaign, openly supporting fake women’s health clinics that manipulate and deceive pregnant women who are trying to seek care.
NARAL Pro-Choice Nevada State Director, Caroline Mello Roberson issued the following statement applauding Ford for never backing down from the fight to ensure that reproductive freedom becomes a reality for all Nevadans:
“In the face of near constant attacks from Wes Duncan, the anti-choice GOP, and deceptive fake health clinics, Aaron Ford has never waivered on his core values. That is the definition of a champion and we could not be more thrilled in this moment to stand by him. Aaron Ford trusts women and families and in turn we know we can always trust him to serve as a steadfast ally in the fight for our rights.”
“The truth is clear: Wes Duncan’s views are too extreme and out of touch with more than 7 in 10 Americans who believe that a woman should have the right to make her own healthcare decisions. Duncan has chosen to ignore the values of Nevadans, instead making attacking our rights and aligning himself with fake clinics that lie to pregnant women. But as committed to undermining the rights of women and families as Duncan is, we are ten times more energized to ensure he does not get the chance to misrepresent Nevadans any longer. NARAL and our members across the state are proud to go to bat for champions like Aaron Ford and we are digging in to ensure that come November, he becomes the next Attorney General of Nevada.”
