PITTSBURGH, PA – Today, Democrat Eugene DePasquale received the Reproductive Freedom For All (formerly NARAL Pro-Choice America) endorsement for Pennsylvania Attorney General. 

 

The women’s rights group joined a growing list of pro-choice organizations backing Eugene and recognized Eugene’s long record of fighting for women.

 

“I’ll be ferocious in the fight to protect reproductive freedom,” said Eugene. “This November, extreme MAGA Republicans such as Donald Trump and my opponent Dave Sunday are going to learn that women in Pennsylvania don’t let extremists take away their rights.”

 

Eugene has pledged not only to defend a woman’s right to make decisions about her own body as Attorney General, but to ensure women fleeing far-right states have access to the care they need in Pennsylvania. 

 

Eugene’s opponent, Republican Dave Sunday, has not ruled out supporting some form of a nationwide abortion ban. Sunday also opened the door to standing by any abortion ban in Pennsylvania passed by the state legislature – no matter how extreme.

 

As Pennsylvania’s Auditor General, Eugene exposed abuses of taxpayer dollars by so-called “crisis pregnancy centers” that misinformed women. Eugene’s investigation and audit paved the way for Governor Shapiro to cut off funding to Real Alternatives and its anti-choice clinics last year.

 

"Protecting abortion rights and access amid attacks from GOP extremists is crucial for Pennsylvania, and electing Eugene DePasquale as attorney general is vital to preserving that freedom," said Reproductive Freedom for All President and CEO Mini Timmaraju in a release announcing the endorsement. "As a champion of reproductive freedom, DePasquale will be an unwavering defender of all Pennsylvanians’ right to make their own decisions about pregnancy and abortion without political interference. We’re proud to endorse him in this race and ready to mobilize our members to elect him this November."

 

Reproductive Freedom For All joins a growing number of unions, advocacy organizations, and leaders across the state endorsing Eugene for Attorney General including the Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania PAC, Pittsburgh Federation of Teachers, United Steelworkers, Central PA Building Trades, Philly Neighborhood Networks, Senator John Fetterman, and more.

Pennsylvania’s general election is on Tuesday, November 5, 2024.

Just like any Pennsylvanian, Eugene doesn’t back down from a tough fight. 

 

Whether it’s standing up for women’s reproductive freedoms, taking on police bureaucracy to reduce the backlog in untested rape kits, or holding corporations accountable for polluting our air and water, Eugene has your back.

 

He always has.

 

As a former state legislator and two-term Auditor General – the state’s top watchdog and investigator – Eugene exposed abuses of taxpayer dollars by anti-choice “crisis pregnancy centers,” uncovered thousands of unanswered calls at the state’s child abuse hotline, and held each party accountable to the people of Pennsylvania.

 

Born and raised in the blue-collar city of Pittsburgh, Eugene knows the value of hard work, putting himself through law school at night. 

 

Eugene is a lifelong Democrat and principled leader who will stand up to both political parties and powerful special interests to help Pennsylvanians thrive.

 

Eugene will continue to put Pennsylvanians over politics and stand up to bullies as Attorney General.
