Since 1972, NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts has led the way in advancing reproductive freedom for women and families in the Commonwealth.

Our mission is to develop and sustain a grassroots constituency that uses the political process to guarantee every woman the right to make personal decisions regarding the full range of reproductive choices, including preventing unintended pregnancy; bearing healthy children; and choosing safe, legal, accessible abortion.

With the right to choose under attack across the country, we need more elected officials right here in Massachusetts who will stand up and safeguard a woman's ability to make personal, private decisions about pregnancy and childbearing. That's why, each campaign season, we work to elect pro-choice candidates by providing tactical support to their campaigns and mobilizing the pro-choice majority to vote.
