DURHAM, NC – NARAL Pro-Choice North Carolina announced today that the organization has endorsed Jay Chaudhuri (D-Wake) for State Senate in District 16 for the March 15primary.
"NARAL North Carolina is proud to endorse Jay Chaudhuri in the March 15 Democratic Primary,” said NARAL Pro-Choice NC C4 Board Chair Jina Dhillon. "Chaudhuri has a strong record of standing up for NC women and families. We are confident he will continue to support policies that promote women's health and keep politicians out of women's personal, private health care decisions,” she continued.
Over the past several years, the North Carolina General Assembly has introduced numerous bills designed to control women’s bodies and limit their autonomy in decision-making. These bills have made it more difficult for the people of North Carolina to access essential reproductive health care. Chaudhuri has committed to fight General Assembly members who want to put politicians between women and their doctors. NARAL Pro-Choice North Carolina believes in endorsing pro-choice candidates who put women’s health first and who trust women to make personal and private choices about reproductive health care.
NARAL Pro-Choice North Carolina is the only statewide organization that works exclusively to protect and advance the reproductive rights of women and families in NC. NARAL Pro-Choice NC has over 33,000 member-activists in the Tar Heel State and serves as an advocate and voice for the 76% of North Carolinians who believe reproductive health care decisions should be made by individuals—not politicians.
