Roe Your Vote Virginia Releases Beyonce, Taylor Swift Inspired Digital Ad in Lead Up to Election Day
Richmond, VA – With one week until Election Day, Roe Your Vote Virginia is releasing a new digital ad to support endorsed candidates in the Commonwealth’s most competitive Senate and House districts. The new ad – which will run in SD 16, SD 27, and SD 24 and nested house districts – encourages Virginia women to vote in support of candidates who will protect abortion rights and is inspired by cultural icons of the summer: Taylor Swift, Beyonce, and Barbie.

“Look what you made us do,” the ad says over images of women casting their ballots. “Women all over Virginia are standing up for freedom and voting to stop Glenn Youngkin and the Virginia legislature from banning abortion.”
Roe Your Vote Virginia is a new PAC focused on helping abortion-rights candidates run and win in Virginia’s 2023 General Assembly elections. Roe Your Vote Virginia has endorsed 80 candidates this cycle, including Schuyler VanValkenburg, Russet Perry, and Josh Thomas in target districts. Polls show that abortion will be a major factor in next week’s elections, with “a majority of Virginia likely voters support either keeping Virginia abortion law as is (49%) or making abortion law less restrictive (23%), while 24% say Virginia should make abortion laws more restrictive.”
“Glenn Youngkin is waiting with his pen in hand to sign any abortion ban if he wins his republican trifecta on November 7th,” said Tara Gibson, Executive Director of Roe Your Vote Virginia. “Virignians – and particularly Virginia women – cannot let him. Not only will Youngkin ban abortion in Virginia, he will use Virginia as a blueprint for Republicans running in 2024.”
