BOSTON, Mass.– The NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts PAC, the political arm of the Commonwealth’s leading grassroots pro-choice advocacy organization, announced the endorsement of Deb Busser for State Representative of the 1st Middlesex District. Busser’s commitment to protecting reproductive freedom from anti-choice attacks earned her the endorsement.
“One of Deb’s top priorities on Beacon Hill will be to protect and expand reproductive freedom in Massachusetts. We’ve seen just how devastating anti-choice attacks on reproductive freedom at the state-level can be, so it’s essential that we elect champions like Deb who will not only fight back, but push the Commonwealth forward,” said Rebecca Hart Holder, Executive Director of NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts. “During the special election cycle in March, voters flipped two anti-choice seats, and we fully expect this to happen again in the 1st Middlesex District on November 3rd. Reproductive freedom is a winning issue in districts across Massachusetts. Deb’s opponent, Representative Sheila Harrington, opposes the ROE Act, legislation that would remove politically-motivated barriers to abortion care from Massachusetts law. She consistently supports legislation that would undermine Roe v. Wade and put access to abortion care out of reach for countless Bay Staters. Voters of the 1st Middlesex District deserve a state representative who will fight for reproductive freedom, not one who would roll back on the clock on choice.”
“I am honored to receive the endorsement of the NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts PAC because the people of my community deserve a leader who will fight to protect their reproductive freedom,” said Deb Busser. “This community is my home and I want to do everything I can to ensure that my friends, neighbors, and constituents have access to the reproductive health care they need to live safe and happy lives. That’s why I will fight for the ROE Act and stand up to politicians who continue to interfere in our personal health care decisions.”
Incumbent State Representative Sheila Harrington is a noted anti-choice politician who received an F on NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts’s 2017-2018 legislative session. During the 2019-2020 legislative session, Representative Harrington filed H3222, an anti-choice bill that defies medical science and is designed to interfere with the ability of physicians to provide abortion care to patients.
Voters of the 1st Middlesex District are encouraged to vote for Deb Busser during the general election on Tuesday, November 3.
