Today marks the beginning of a 45-day battle to protect reproductive choice in Virginia!
Although the 2011 general assembly session that starts today is a short one for Virginia, we will have our hands full nearly every moment with anti-choice attacks on birth control, abortion access, and comprehensive sex education! We will also be busy advocating for pro-choice policies on issues such as expanding comprehensive sex education for Virginia’s young people and improving contraceptive access for low-income women.
We’ll need your support and your voice to ensure that our efforts in Richmond are successful this year. Here are some ways you can get involved and keep up-to-date on the latest information about protecting and promoting reproductive choice during the general assembly session and beyond!

This promises to be a difficult session for reproductive choice, but together we can protect our freedoms and show lawmakers that Virginia is pro-choice! We will be on the ground in Richmond fighting daily, and I hope I can count on having you standing with us. Stay tuned for updates on more ways you can get involved as the session continues.
