HARTFORD, CT — NARAL Pro-Choice Connecticut PAC is pleased to announce our endorsement of David McClusky for State Representative in the General Elections. Representative McClusky is the incumbent in the 20th District of West Hartford.
NARAL Pro-Choice Connecticut PAC is the only PAC in the state dedicated to evaluating candidates solely on their position regarding women’s reproductive freedom. Endorsement is given only to those candidates who have requested endorsement and who are deemed by the PAC to be 100% pro-choice.
"Representative McClusky is a vocal advocate for women’s reproductive freedom,” said Cari Carter, PAC Chair. "During the 2008 legislative session, he played a vital role in preventing a bill that would have placed unnecessary restrictions on a woman’s access to abortion.”
All Candidates endorsed by NARAL Pro-Choice Connecticut PAC pledge, if elected, to vote against anti-choice bills, those that would restrict access to the full spectrum of reproductive health services, from contraception, to carrying a healthy pregnancy to term, to choosing a safe and legal abortion. Understanding the importance of prevention, endorsed candidates also support comprehensive, medically accurate, and age-appropriate sexuality education that is based on medically accurate information.
NARAL Pro-Choice Connecticut PAC is proud to endorse David McClusky for State Representative-a candidate who understands that the women of Connecticut have the integrity and intelligence to make responsible reproductive decisions.
