[RICHMOND, Va] - Today, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Virginia announced its list of reproductive health and rights candidates for the Virginia House of Delegates. All 100 House of Delegates seats are up for election and there are PPAV endorsed candidates in 73 of them.

Statement from Jamie Lockhart, executive director of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Virginia: 

“Today’s endorsements reflect the deep bench of sexual and reproductive health care champions running for office in Virginia who are committed to building on the progress that’s been made over the last two years. Whether they are incumbents or candidates running for the first time, it is remarkable to see the quality of candidates who are passionate about increasing access to essential health care and ready to serve our commonwealth in the General Assembly.

With a critical abortion rights case being heard by the Supreme Court, the right to access reproductive health care is under threat like no time in recent memory. Across the country, we are seeing bills that infringe on a person’s right to make their own health care decisions. That’s why it’s critical that we keep a pro-reproductive rights majority in the House of Delegates. We must continue to ensure that individuals can access the health care they need, when they need it, and without political interference.”
