    NikeSwag has it right. It's protract, which means to extend forward or outward.

    depending on the usage of the word "retract", other possible opposites are : corroborate, emphasize, reaffirm, repeat

    In a legal or contractual sense, retracting something [statement, etc.] means "to no longer adhere to." In that sense, two opposites appear: First, to not retract (initially), would be ADHERE (TO) - or avidly maintain http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/adhere Second, to reverse a retraction, would be to AFFIRM - or assert as valid http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/affirm Again, NikeSwag correctly identified PROTRACT as the denotational antonym of retract: Retract - to draw back or in Protract - to extend forward or outward
