Jennifer Wexton on Abortion

 

 


Women's access to reproductive and contraceptive services

Q: What do you propose to ensure high quality, affordable and accessible health care for all Americans?

Jennifer T. Wexton: I believe access to affordable healthcare is a right for all Americans. In the State Senate, I have fought alongside fellow Democrats for a woman's right to make her own healthcare decisions and to more easily access reproductive and contraceptive services. I have also been a champion for mental health reform and combating the heroin and opioid crisis in Virginia.

Pro-choice, according to PVS survey.

Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
