Northern Virginia – Dr. Laura Meyers, co-President of Planned Parenthood Advocates for DC, Maryland & Northern Virginia (PPADMV) issued the following statement after Jennifer Wexton defeated anti-reproductive health Congresswoman Barbara Comstock in the 2018 midterm elections.

“I am delighted to be able to congratulate Jennifer Wexton on her stunning victory last night over Representative Barbara Comstock,” co-President of PPADMV Dr. Laura Meyers said. “Representative Comstock has spent her two terms in office avoiding her constituents, supporting tax cuts for billionaires, and denying the importance of access to comprehensive reproductive health care.”

“It is time for new leadership; it is time for Virginia’s 10th Congressional district to be represented by someone who will listen to their constituents and fight on their behalf, instead of aiding and abetting the Trump-Pence administration’s anti-women, anti-reproductive rights agenda.”
