From the DCCC:

Jen Kiggans Stands With Those Responsible For Arizona Abortion Ban

Just one day after Donald Trump said states should be free to ban abortion, the Arizona Supreme Court ruled to allow an 1864 abortion ban – with no exceptions for rape or incest and that criminalizes anyone who helps a patient get an abortion – to stand. Jen Kiggans proudly endorsed Trump and his anti-abortion record, claiming “the time has come for us to work as a team.”

Kiggans also has her own anti-abortion record and rhetoric to account for. She:

  • Voted to take away resources from active duty servicemembers forced to travel out-of-state to get an abortion.
  • Voted for MAGA Mike Johnson, who wants to ban abortion nationwide without exceptions for rape, incest, or the life of a woman.
  • Called abortion a “shiny object” and compared having an abortion to getting a “nose job.”
  • Voted to allow states like Arizona to ban abortion by voting against the Women’s Health Protection Act

DCCC Spokesperson Lauryn Fanguen: 
“Jen Kiggans sides with Donald Trump and anti-abortion extremists over Coastal Virginians at every turn. Her enthusiastic support for Trump despite his continuous attack on women’s rights will turn off Virginia voters who sent a clear message in their recent local November elections – they want to elect candidates who will protect abortion rights.”

Derrick Anderson Stands With Those Responsible For Arizona Abortion Ban

Just one day after Donald Trump said states should be free to ban abortion, the Arizona Supreme Court ruled to allow an 1864 abortion ban – with no exceptions for rape or incest and that criminalizes anyone who helps a patient get an abortion – to stand. Derrick Anderson proudly endorsed Trump and his anti-abortion record, claiming that Trump is the “leader” who will “make our country better.”

Does Anderson think an 1864 abortion ban makes the country better? Women in Virginian certainly do not.  

Derrick Anderson doesn’t hide his conspicuous anti-abortion extremism:

DCCC Spokesperson Lauryn Fanguen:
“From being bankrolled by Republican leadership that’s pushing a national abortion ban to boasting about his own anti-choice extremism, there’s no question that Derrick Anderson is egregiously anti-abortion. Come November, the overwhelming majority of Virginians who support abortion rights will turn out in droves to vote against his dangerous anti-abortion agenda.”
