We just made history right here in Virginia by passing the Reproductive Health Protection Act!
As the Governor prepares to sign the Reproductive Health Protection Act into law, join NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia online for a quick, one-hour webinar to learn about how RHPA will dramatically shift the landscape of abortion access in Virginia — for the better! We’ll break down how the law will work, the archaic, medically-unnecessary anti-abortion restrictions we’re saying goodbye to, and what RHPA means not just for Virginia, but for reproductive freedom nationally. Can Virginia become a model for reproductive freedom in a post-Roe nation? How can we prepare for the disinformation campaign from anti-choice opponents as the law goes into effect, and what protections does RHPA afford Virginians as the Supreme Court prepares their decision on a monumental abortion case? We’ll get to all this and more — all you have to do is log on!

Reproductive care is essential healthcare. Even in a pandemic —essential reproductive healthcare does not go away—and is likely heightened—as Virginians experience uncertain and dangerous health conditions.
