Red state leaders are doing their best to attack women’s rights—and Virginia’s no exception. In the last 7 years, VA’s legislature has introduced 80 anti-choice bills and passed 4. Women’s lives will stay at risk until we flip VA blue.
Why does Virginia have a red state legislature, even though it voted for Hillary in 2016? The answer lies in corrupt district maps that favor the GOP. VA’s gerrymandering has given Republicans 1-2 unearned seats in Congress.
There’s an easy way to provide health insurance to 400,000 Virginians—but the GOP-controlled state legislature refuses to seal the deal. By rejecting the Medicaid expansion, Republicans condemn Virginia families to bankruptcy and sickness.
