Terry for Virginia Releases New Ad “Caught” Highlighting Glenn Youngkin’s Efforts to Hide Far Right Abortion Views from Voters

Glenn Youngkin Was Caught On Video Admitting That If Elected He Will “Go On Offense” To Ban Abortion And Defund Planned Parenthood

MCLEAN, VA – Terry for Virginia today released a new TV ad, “Caught,” outlining Glenn Youngkin’s effort to hide his far right agenda from Virginia voters. The ad shows video footage of Glenn Youngkin promising in his own words to “go on offense” to ban abortion and defund Planned Parenthood if he is elected governor. Youngkin then admits he is trying to hide his out-of-touch agenda from Virginia voters so that he has any chance of winning in November. The new ad makes clear: Glenn Youngkin’s far right agenda is wrong for Virginia.

Terry has long been a champion of women’s reproductive rights and has been endorsed by Planned Parenthood Advocates of Virginia and NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia due to his strong record. As Virginia’s 72nd Governor, Terry successfully fought back against attempts to close all women’s health clinics in Virginia and kept the clinics open, and he vetoed multiple bills that would have defunded Planned Parenthood. Just as he was before, Terry will always be a “brick wall” to protect access to reproductive health care in the Commonwealth.
