As the nation’s leading pro-choice advocacy group, NARAL Pro-Choice America is dedicated to protecting and expanding reproductive freedom for all Americans, including abortion access.
NARAL, along with our more than one million members from all 50 states and a network of state affiliates, works to guarantee that each woman has access to the full range of reproductive healthcare. This means we’re on the front lines in the fight to expand access to abortion, make contraception more affordable, prohibit discrimination against pregnant women, and ensure all parents have access to paid leave. In recognition of our work defending these basic rights, Fortune Magazine rated NARAL as “one of the top 10 advocacy groups in America.”
At NARAL, we don’t operate or litigate; we organize and mobilize. Working together, we push our friends to be bolder, lift up the champions fighting with us for true reproductive freedom, and shine a spotlight of accountability on bad actors who work to impose their ideological agenda on us all.
