NARAL-President-Ilyse Hogue

I admit, I had trepidation about telling people…. Is it going to change the way they look at me? Are they going to treat me differently?…

There is this whole mentality that anyone who fights for the rights that we fight for must hate children and not want to parent. So to have the leader of a reproductive rights organization — an abortion rights organization — show up pregnant, it’s just jaw-dropping….

[This pregnancy] is amazing for me. Because it was my own decision to do it.

~ 45-year-old NARAL president Ilyse Hogue, who is 36 weeks pregnant with twins, as quoted by The Washington Post, June 7
