U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal received a special award from NARAL Pro-Choice America in appreciation of his support for women’s reproductive rights.

The award honored Blumenthal as a “champion of choice.”

“I am proud to stand with NARAL in fighting to protect a woman’s right to choose in the most personal of health care decisions. Politicians and partisan politics simply have no place in our clinics and doctors’ offices,” Blumenthal, who has championed women’s rights since his days as attorney general of Connecticut, said. “NARAL is a powerful, passionate voice for women, and I am deeply honored by this award.

“I promise to continue to fight alongside NARAL on behalf of women in Connecticut and across this nation to ensure every woman has access to the medical services they need and deserve—without disgraceful and dangerous partisan interference,” Blumenthal said.

“It is good to take a breath and remember those working for women’s rights in Washington, D.C., and to show appreciation for Senator Blumenthal’s diligence and support,” said Shannon Lane, Board Chair of NARAL Pro-Choice Connecticut.
