In response to the release of several extremely troubling anti-LGBT and misogynistic social media posts from Georgia SD-6 candidate Jaha Howard, NARAL Georgia State Director, Laura Simmons released the following statement:

 “While we appreciate his apparent change of heart, an apology after the fact is not enough. Georgia families deserve someone who has been a consistent fighter for their rights and freedoms. This disregard for the lives of other Georgians has no place in our politics and no place in the Democratic Party.”

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.”
