Endorsement highlights organization’s dedication to building a pro-choice majority in the Virginia House of Delegates
Alexandria, Va. – Today, NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia PAC, the Commonwealth’s leading political organization for women’s health and reproductive rights, announced its endorsement of Jennifer Carroll Foy, candidate for delegate in House District 2. Foy, a VMI graduate, is running against Republican nominee Mike Makee to fill the seat previously held by anti-choice Republican Mark Dudenhefer.
“Voters in House District 2 are incredibly fortunate to have such a strong, pro-choice candidate in Jennifer Carroll Foy,” said Tarina Keene, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia. “As a new mom of two and a public defender, Jennifer understands the critical importance of a government that respects and trusts Virginia women. With new attacks on reproductive freedom coming out of Washington every week, it’s more important than ever that we elect candidates at the state and local level who are committed to protecting reproductive rights. I know that Jennifer will stand firm in the House of Delegates against any attacks on women’s health and reproductive freedom. NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia is proud to endorse Jennifer Carroll Foy, and we look forward to working closely with her in the years to come.”
“I am honored to receive NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia’s endorsement. Women’s access to safe and affordable reproductive healthcare is under attack in Virginia and across the country” said Foy. “I am proud to stand with NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia in the fight for reproductive rights to ensure politicians don’t get between a woman and her doctor.”
NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia supports candidates who are dedicated to protecting and advancing family planning, preventing unplanned pregnancy and increasing access to reproductive healthcare for women, including safe, legal abortion. The organization’s powerful statewide network of activists will mobilize pro-choice voters in HD 2 and across Virginia to elect Jennifer Carroll Foy and other pro-choice candidates this November.
