Alexandria, Va.– NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia is proud to endorse reproductive rights champion Delegate Elizabeth Guzman, who represents Virginia’s 31st House District.
Delegate Elizabeth Guzman stood strong for reproductive rights during her freshman term in the House of Delegates even in the face of adversity, often speaking out during the disinformation campaign launched by anti-abortion politicians earlier this year. Delegate Guzman trusts a woman to make her own reproductive healthcare decisions and with increased threats to abortion care across the country, including here in Virginia, it is critical that Virginian’s re-elect her on November 5.
“Delegate Elizabeth Guzman is a proven champion for reproductive freedom in the Commonwealth and NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia is proud to endorse her,” said Tarina Keene, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia. “Delegate Guzman stands up and fights for all Virginians, especially the most underserved members of our communities – young, rural, low-income women, and women of color – who are often disproportionately impacted when their access to reproductive healthcare is threatened or out of reach. With Roe on the chopping block, her leadership is needed now more ever.”
“I’m honored to be endorsed by NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia and will continue my commitment to protecting a woman’s right to make her own healthcare decisions,” said Delegate Guzman. “The fight for reproductive justice is happening right here at the state level. Anti-abortion politicians in Virginia have spent years trying to shut off access to abortion by using medically unnecessary and politically motivated restrictions to close clinics and shame women. Virginians need representatives who respect their values and their dignity and will protect their ability to make their own personal reproductive healthcare decisions that are best for themselves and their families.”
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.
