We have the power to protect abortion access in Virginia. We are the majority.
With Roe v. Wade under threat, the time to act is now.
For the first time in history, Virginians elected a pro-choice majority in the General Assembly. Pro-choice voters across the Commonwealth sent a clear message to Richmond: it’s time for our elected officials to lead on protecting and expanding reproductive freedom and removing barriers to abortion access. All Virginians should be able to make healthcare decisions that are best for their lives and their families.
When someone decides to have an abortion, it should be safe, affordable and free from punishment or judgment. However, since 2011 anti-abortion politicians in Virginia have introduced over 170 medically unnecessary abortion bills and regulations that have placed political interference between a woman and her doctor, which has led to Virginia becoming one of the most hostile states for abortion access in the country.
These laws–like the 24-hour mandatory delay, and the forced ultrasound–have created barriers for women seeking access to abortion care.
With Roe v. Wade under threat at the Supreme Court, the time for Virginia legislators to act is now! And we need your help to remind them that 7 in 10 Virginians believe that abortion care should remain safe, legal, and accessible.
