In New Video, Siobhan Dunnavant Vows To Deliver Abortion Ban in Virginia
Richmond, Va. - Today, Siobhan Dunnavant released a campaign video in a desperate effort to deflect from voters her true intentions–to ban abortion in Virginia.
Statement from Jamie Lockhart, Executive Director of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Virginia:
“Abortion rights are a central issue for voters, with over 70% of Virginians believing abortion should be legal. Yet, Siobhan Dunnavant continues to peddle dangerous misinformation about essential health care while attempting to distract voters from her true intentions–to pass an abortion ban in Virginia. In fact, Dunnavant has rejected the advice of her own obstetric peers so she can deliver an abortion ban straight to Governor Glenn Youngkin’s desk.
We’ve seen the horrific impact of abortion bans across the country. People are forced to give birth, even when it puts their lives at risk or when their pregnancies are nonviable. One in three American women now live in states where they no longer have control over their bodies. We can’t let the same happen in Virginia.
How close to death does someone have to be before Siobhan Dunnavant feels they deserve health care? Abortion is on the ballot.
Virginians will see her stance for exactly what it is – an attack on our reproductive freedom and an attempt to take decisions and access away from patients.”
