In Our State

The majority of Virginians support continued access to safe, legal abortion. Anti-choice politicians in our state wish to roll back healthcare for women. Help us fight for a pro-choice Virginia by learning more and getting involved.

Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam (D) is pro-choice.

Current Laws

In NARAL Pro-Choice America's 2017 annual report,"Who Decides?The Status of Women's Reproductive Rights in the United States,” access to reprodutive rights in Virginia is described as "severely restricted." Decades of state laws passed by anti-choice politicians have eroded Virginians’ right to abortion and made it more difficult for women to access the reproductive health services and information they need.
