Alexandria, Va.- Today, NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia PAC announced its release of a Statement of Support for the following pro-choice candidates in Virginia’s 2019 House of Delegates and state Senate races. NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia PAC only considers support for those who receive a 100% on its 29-question candidate questionnaire.

These candidates received a perfect score on NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia PAC’s uncompromising candidate questionnaire. We are confident that these strong advocates for reproductive freedom would be unwavering defenders of reproductive health and rights in the General Assembly.

“With Roe v. Wade hanging by a thread at the Supreme Court and access to safe, legal abortion under attack by anti-abortion Republican controlled state legislators across this country, Virginia needs to become a safe haven for reproductive freedom in surrounding states and across the south, and elect pro-choice candidates this November 5th,” said Tarina Keene, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia.

“Virginia can simply not afford to have anti-choice politicians whose anti-birth control, anti-abortion agenda jeopardizes the safety and health of women and families across the Commonwealth.  I am confident that these pro-choice candidates will serve as fierce advocates for reproductive freedom in the General Assembly and will fight to protect and expand access to the full gamut of reproductive healthcare and rights. Each of these candidates trusts a woman to make her own reproductive healthcare decisions in consultation with her doctor and recognizes how all Virginians need the ability to access to the full range of reproductive healthcare services without the inference from politicians.”

Statements of Support highlight NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia’s dedication to flipping the anti-choice controlled Virginia House and state Senate to establish a pro-choice majority in the General Assembly for the first time in history, needed to protect and expand access to reproductive healthcare and rights.
