Alexandria, Va. – NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia is proud to endorse reproductive rights advocate and Democratic incumbent, Delegate Luke Torian, representing Virginia’s 52nd House District.
Delegate Torian is a dedicated reproductive rights advocate and has a voting record of supporting comprehensive reproductive healthcare legislation. He understands the critical need for all Virginians to have the ability to make their own personal reproductive healthcare decisions without interference from politicians.
“We are confident that Delegate Torian will continue to fight to protect and expand access to critical reproductive healthcare and rights in the General Assembly” said Tarina Keene, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia. “Across this country, we are witnessing a new wave of extreme bans on abortion, stripping away reproductive freedom and representing an all-out assault on abortion access. And at this critical juncture, Virginia needs leaders like Delegate Torian, who understand the urgent importance of securing a future that safeguards abortion care and upholds Virginians basic rights and freedoms.
“I am pleased to earn the endorsement of NARAL Pro-Choice, Virginia.,” said Delegate Luke Torian. “We see a rising tide of anti-choice actions at the federal and state levels. We cannot allow Virginia to pass similar legislation as some of my colleagues have suggested. Elected officials like myself have no business interfering in the personal, private healthcare decisions of the people we are elected to represent. I remain committed to opposing any efforts to restrict reproductive freedom or deny Virginians access to comprehensive healthcare.”
NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia and its PAC support candidates who are dedicated to family planning, preventing unplanned pregnancy, and increasing access to reproductive healthcare for women and families. The organization’s powerful statewide network of 22,000 activists will mobilize pro-choice voters throughout Virginia to help elect pro-choice candidates in November.
