NARAL Pro-Choice California endorses Melissa Fox

Irvine City Councilmember Melissa Fox earned the endorsement of NARAL Pro-Choice California in her bid for Assembly District 68.

In a statement released with the announced endorsement, Shannon Hovis, Director of NARAL Pro-Choice California, commented:

“Melissa Fox is exactly the kind of fierce champion we need fighting for reproductive freedom in the State Assembly. She has been an advocate for reproductive freedom since, at the age of 17, she attended the March for Women’s Lives in Washington, D.C., and has since held leadership roles with organizations fighting to get more women elected and in office. NARAL is proud to back her in this race, and we look forward to the work she will do for California women and families in the state legislature.”

Fox also released a statement reflecting on the endorsement:

“I am deeply honored to have NARAL Pro-Choice California stand by me in the fight to protect and defend women’s access to reproductive health care services. It is critical that we come together to fight for reproductive freedom and ensure that decisions regarding reproductive health are based off a woman’s own choice, not someone else’s. This endorsement reflects my lifelong commitment to a woman’s right to choose and I cannot wait to continue my work fighting for women’s reproductive rights in the Assembly.”

Recently, Fox’s campaign announced that it had topped $250,000 raised for the upcoming March primary election.
