Candidate for Virginia’s 2nd District Earns Endorsement from Nation’s Leading Pro-Choice Advocacy Group
For Immediate Release: May 3, 2018
NARAL Pro-Choice America today announced its endorsement of Elaine Luria in her bid to represent Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District.
“Elaine Luria has made it clear that supporting women’s access to reproductive health care will be one of her top priorities if elected to Congress,” said Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “Virginia women and families need fighters like Elaine Luria in Congress to stand up against the extreme, anti-choice GOP agenda and protect our most basic rights.”
“As the mother of a young daughter, I will be a strong advocate in Congress for protecting and expanding reproductive freedom for every woman in America,” said Luria “I’m proud to partner with NARAL to protect women’s access to reproductive healthcare and paid family leave.”
Elaine Luria, a former Surface Warfare Officer in the Navy, has built her life around public service. After 20 years in the Navy, she started a small business that is dedicated to charity that supports youth and the arts. Her experience as a veteran and a mother make her well-equipped to represent this district and fight for the freedom her constituents have when it comes to choosing when to start a family. Luria understands the importance of access to healthcare, specifically reproductive healthcare and will fight for the freedom of her constituents to choose when to start a family as a member of Congress.
NARAL Pro-Choice America and its network of state affiliates are dedicated to protecting and expanding reproductive freedom for all Americans. NARAL works to guarantee that every woman has the right to make personal decisions regarding the full range of reproductive choices, including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and choosing legal abortion. In recognition of its work defending our constitutional right to choose, Fortune Magazine described NARAL as “one of the top 10 advocacy groups in America.”
