Zero: VIRGINIA House Republicans
Every year in the Virginia General Assembly, someone <<cough>>a white, male, Republican<<cough>> takes the time to introduce a 20-week abortion ban. And every year, it doesn’t become law.
This week, while the United States Senate was failing—again—to repeal Obamacare, the House of Representatives was sneaking in legislation that harms women, families, and healthcare providers all at once.
We’ll fight back this bill both in the U.S. Congress and in the Virginia General Assembly.
In Virginia, we need a Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, and a House of Delegates who trust women. There’s a state-wide election in November. Are you registered to vote?
