E-Mail message from NARAL to inquiring Journalists in January 2005

STATEMENT ON S. 51/H.R. 356

Nancy Keenan, President

NARAL Pro-Choice America

“Pro-choice Americans have always believed that women deserve access to all the information relevant to their reproductive health decisions. For some women, that includes information related to fetal anesthesia options. NARAL Pro-Choice America does not intend to oppose this legislation.

Most importantly, I hope that over the next few years those of us who believe in a woman’s right to choose and those who oppose that freedom can find ways to work together to reduce unintended pregnancies and the number of abortions. Helping pass Senator Harry Reid’s Prevention First Act would certainly be a good start in that direction.”
