NARAL Pro-Choice Minnesota Calls for Senator Franken to Resign 

St. Paul, MN  

NARAL Pro-Choice Minnesota joins NARAL Pro-Choice America, as well as dozens of U.S. Senators, in calling for the resignation of Senator Al Franken, who has been accused of sexual harassment and unwanted sexual advances by multiple women.  

"Unfortunately, we know that these women are not alone in their experience.  Last month, NARAL Pro-Choice Minnesota called on the Minnesota legislature to conduct a comprehensive review of current sexual harassment policy and training procedures.  We repeat that call today and stand behind the reform proposal offered by Representative Erin Maye Quade, Representative Jamie Becker Finn, and Lindsey Port, said NARAL Pro-Choice Minnesota Executive Director Andrea Ledger.  

"NARAL Pro-Choice Minnesota members expect our elected officials to be held to the highest possible standard.  We trust the women who bravely have come forward to share their stories.

It is time for systemic change at the U.S. Capitol, in the Minnesota Capitol, and in workplaces across the country.
