Joan Rivers – the quintessential every womanPosted: September 5, 2014
The National Board and staff of the Republican Majority for Choice were saddened to learn of the passing of our friend, Joan Rivers. While Joan is universally known for her often stark and humorous musings on life’s idiosyncrasies, we will remember a woman whose position on women’s rights was unshakable and that she used that passion to support pro-choice Republicans running for national office. Joan knew that the surest way for Congress to pass common sense legislation regarding reproductive health was to elect candidates on both sides that promised to do just that. In 2001 Joan graciously lent her name to a letter that was mailed nationally encouraging support for our organization’s political action committee and the response was astounding. We will always be proud to count Joan among our supporters and send sincere condolences to her family.
