#VOTEPROCHOICE ENDORSES 8 PROCHOICE CHAMPIONS IN VIRGINIA

#VOTEPROCHOICE co-founder Heidi L. Sieck: “We cannot afford anti-choice Democrats leading in Virginia—it’s time for prochoice champions”

VIRGINIA — National prochoice organizing project #VOTEPROCHOICE endorsed six prochoice champions in Virginia’s Democratic primary, along with two prochoice champions in the Virginia general who do not face primary challenges. #VOTEPROCHOICE endorses prochoice champions up and down the ballot across the country. #VOTEPROCHOICE co-founder & CEO Heidi L. Sieck praised the prochoice candidates for making reproductive freedom a top priority in their campaigns and for championing reproductive healthcare for all.

#VOTEPROCHOICE is proud to endorse:

Susan Hippen - Virginia State Senate, District 07

Rebecca Leser - Virginia House of Delegates, District 96

Danica Roem - Virginia House of Delegates, District 13

Karl Frisch - Fairfax County School Board, Providence District

Larysa Kautz - Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, Lee District

Alicia Plerhoples - Chairman, Fairfax County Board of Supervisors

LaTonsha "LT" Pridgen - Coles Board Supervisor, Prince William County

Shyamali Hauth - Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, Hunter Mill District

“Unapologetic prochoice champions in Virginia have faced death threats, hateful remarks, and the scorn of anti-choice President Donald Trump. On primary day, Virginia’s voters must stand with their prochoice champions and vote prochoice up and down the ballot. Anyone who cares about reproductive freedom needs to have a laser-sharp focus on building up prochoice majorities in critical states like Virginia. That’s why #VOTEPROCHOICE is proud to support prochoice candidates in the Virginia state primary today,” said #VOTEPROCHOICE co-founder Heidi L. Sieck. “It’s time for Virginia’s prochoice majority to take to the streets, vote en mass to take back the state legislature, and protect our constitutional right to our own bodies. Prochoice Virginians must flood the primary like their lives depend on it. Because as Kathy Tran learned this past January--they do.”
