“The U.S. Supreme Court will hear a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade this fall and will likely gut or outright overturn the landmark decision that made abortion legal in this country. That’s why electing pro-choice candidates on November 2nd is so critical to the future of reproductive freedom in the Commonwealth. Receiving an endorsement from NARAL Virginia is not only an acknowledgment of a candidate’s support for reproductive health and rights, it is an indication that a candidate will stop at nothing to ensure that Virginians can count on them to fiercely protect and expand our access to the full range of reproductive healthcare including abortion. We have far too much to lose at this moment in time, and we need reproductive freedom champions fighting for us and will ensure the Commonwealth is a safe haven for abortion access should Roe fall next year,” stated Executive Director Tarina Keene.

“Each of these candidates earned our support, and our team looks forward to working and winning with them when they take office in 2022. There is so much work to be done. Losing our pro-choice majority would leave Virginians vulnerable to attacks from anti-abortion extremists who will stop at nothing to ban abortion and strip people who can become pregnant of their bodily autonomy. We won’t stop until we can ensure that every Virginian has access to the reproductive healthcare they want and need when they need it.”

NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia also extends a Statement of Support to the following reproductive freedom champions:

  • District 7 Derek Kitts
  • District 9 Bridgette Craighead
  • District 16 Chance Trevillian
  • District 18 Douglas Ward
  • District 24 Sam Soghor
  • District 56 Blakely Lockhart
  • District 61 Trudy Berry
  • District 65 Caitlin Coakley
  • District 78 Melanie Corelneisse
  • District 99 Linwood Blizzard

NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia supports candidates who pledge to protect and advance each and every Virginians’ right to abortion and access to the full range of reproductive healthcare. The organization’s powerful network of activists will mobilize and ensure these candidates are elected and keep the pro-reproductive freedom majority in Virginia this fall.
