Denver – Today, the NARAL Pro-Choice Small Donor Committee announced they have endorsed Omar Montgomery to be Mayor of Aurora, Colorado. The election is November 5.

According to NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado Executive Director Karen Middleton, “NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado is proud to endorse and support Omar Montgomery for Aurora Mayor. Aurora is the third largest city in Colorado, and contains a large percentage of metro area residents, low income and single parent households, and abortion providers.

“The residents of Aurora and all of Colorado deserve leaders who understand the intersections of race and class, as well as economic justice and access to the full spectrum of healthcare. We believe Omar Montgomery, better than any candidate in the race, fully understands these intersections. NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado believes that Mr. Montgomery would use his position to the best of his availability to ensure reproductive health issues are considered in city management decisions, and not as a separate issue.”

“We must make sure that we don’t legislate at the state, federal, and municipal level what a woman can or can’t do with her own body,” Montgomery said. “It’s about equal rights and access to health care. As leaders we have to be courageous and we can’t be scared to speak on issues that affect our community. The people of Aurora should know that I will speak out and be their champion on health care and reproductive rights. I believe that an endorsement from NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado tells residents of our city that I stand with women. I am proud to have this endorsement.”


NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado Foundation’s mission is to support and protect, as a fundamental right and value, a woman’s freedom to make personal decisions regarding reproductive health care.

NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado’s mission is to develop and sustain a statewide constituency that used the political process to guarantee every woman the right to make personal decisions regarding reproductive health care.
