NEW AD: “Cheered” Highlights Extreme, Anti-Abortion Positions of Yesli Vega

New ad exposes extreme beliefs of far-right radical Yesli Vega

FREDERICKSBURG, VA – The campaign of Rep. Abigail Spanberger released its latest ad spotlighting Yesli Vega’s extreme record when it comes to a woman’s right to choose.

“Cheered” highlights recent comments made by extremist Yesli Vega on abortion. Vega applauded the Supreme Court’s draft opinion to overturn Roe as an “amazing victory,” doubted the likelihood that women who are raped could become pregnant, and made clear she supports a nationwide ban on abortion – even in cases where the life of the mother is at risk

In “Cheered,” a local Virginia news reporter cuts to the chase: Vega believes God – not a doctor or healthcare provider – should decide the fate of a mother.

Narrator: First, Yesli Vega cheered the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade.

Next, Vega was caught on tape saying women can’t get pregnant from rape.

Then, she made clear she favors a total ban on abortion, with no exceptions.

News Anchor:  Vega, a far-right candidate who is notoriously anti-abortion,  saying in that recording that only God can decide the life of the mother.

Narrator: Yesli Vega is too extreme for Virginia.

“Virginians need to know who Yesli Vega is and how damaging her beliefs are,” said Sam Signori, Campaign Manager for Abigail Spanberger for Congress. “The choice in this election could not be more clear: a legislator who holds herself accountable and believes in a woman’s right to choose, or a politician who would tear away the rights of Virginia women to make their own healthcare decisions with their doctors, even if their life was on the line.”

Spanberger is the only pro-choice, pro-marriage equality, and pro-privacy candidate in the race for Virginia’s Seventh Congressional District (VA-07).

Spanberger is working tirelessly in the U.S. House of Representatives to build coalitions and enact commonsense legislation that will improve the lives of Virginians and protect fundamental rights and freedoms. That is why Spanberger has been a vocal advocate for safeguarding the rights of all Virginians. Spanberger has voted with a majority in the U.S House to protect the right to contraception, same-sex marriage, interstate travel for reproductive care, and twice to codify Roe v. Wade.

Earlier this year, she was ranked the most bipartisan Member of Congress from Virginia and one of the most bipartisan Members of Congress overall.
