Statement from Andrea Miller, President of the NIRH Action Fund

“We believe firmly that we should trust women and the people who come forward to tell their stories, always. And that is what we must do now.

The NIRH Action Fund PAC previously endorsed Gov. Andrew Cuomo because of his record on leadership for reproductive freedom. However, no amount of public support for policies that advance reproductive freedom can ever excuse sexual harassment. There must be a fully independent investigation into the accusations against the Governor. He should be held to a standard of full accountability for his actions, just as we’d expect of any other leader or public servant.”


The National Institute for Reproductive Health Action Fund (NIRH Action Fund) is an advocacy group that builds political power for reproductive freedom. We elect candidates who stand up for everyone’s right to control their reproductive lives, and work with elected officials to protect and advance reproductive rights, all in partnership with allied groups in states and cities. Our strategy is to go on the offensive and focus on communities where the need is great and we can make a difference, so the fabric of reproductive freedom becomes harder to tear apart.
