“This seat is critical to ensure that we can protect the rights of women’s reproductive health care.” – Councilman Aaron Rouse

“If we’re successful in Senate District 7 and a pro-life champion comes out as the senator there, we’ve got the opportunity to move pain-capable protections forward and get them through to Gov. Youngkin’s desk.” – SBA Pro-Life America.

RICHMOND, VA – Today, in a recent article in POLITICO, highlighted how the special election in Senate District 7 will play a critical role in the fight to protect abortion rights in Virginia.

National anti-abortion groups view this race as a way to get an abortion ban to Governor Youngkin’s desk. In the article, SBA Pro-Life America’s Vice President said:

“If we’re successful in Senate District 7 and a pro-life champion comes out as the senator there, we’ve got the opportunity to move pain-capable protections forward and get them through to Gov. Youngkin’s desk.”

Kevin Adams, the extremist Republican anti-abortion candidate, has made his commitment to banning abortion very clear. On his website, he claims he is 100% anti-abortion and would support an abortion ban that would send women and doctors to prison if elected to Virginia’s Senate.

In stark contrast, Aaron Rouse, a former NFL Player and current City Council member, has always been a staunch defender of reproductive rights and will continue protecting women’s reproductive health care in the Senate. If elected, Rouse will ensure Republicans’ extreme attempts to ban abortion will fail.
