BOSTON, Mass. – Rebecca Hart Holder, Executive Director of NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts, the Commonwealth’s leading grassroots, pro-choice political advocacy organization, issued the following statement on Dan Sena’s election to the Massachusetts State House of Representatives:
“I want to extend my sincere congratulations to Dan Sena on his election to the Massachusetts House of Representatives. Residents of the 37th Middlesex District have made it clear that they want a reproductive freedom champion to represent them on Beacon Hill.
“As a DREAMer, Representative-elect Sena has seen firsthand how inequalities within the Commonwealth make it difficult for many Bay Staters to realize the American Dream. Among these inequalities are barriers to accessing health care, especially reproductive health care, which disproportionately impact low-income communities and communities of color.”
“We endorsed Dan for the same reason his constituents elected him—he will work to make Massachusetts a better place for all Bay Staters. We look forward to working with him to achieve these goals by protecting reproductive freedom, removing unnecessary barriers to abortion care, and passing the ROE Act.”
