Today marks the one year anniversary of the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization Supreme Court decision, a significant ruling that overturned decades long precedent and the constitutional right to abortion. On this solemn occasion, Atoosa Reaser, Loudoun County School Board Member and Democratic Nominee for the House of Delegates in Eastern Loudoun, stands strong in her commitment to defend reproductive rights and ensure access to safe and legal healthcare for all individuals.
“As we mark the one year anniversary of the Dobbs decision, we are reminded of the ongoing threats to reproductive rights and our civil liberties.” Atoosa said. “This decision follows a trend from the court to push more and more of these battles to our state legislatures, and underscores the urgent need to flip the House of Delegates this November. We must protect and expand access to comprehensive reproductive healthcare and enshrine the right to an abortion in the Virginia constitution. I stand firmly in defense of reproductive rights, and I am dedicated to fighting for the rights of all individuals to make informed decisions about their own bodies.”
Since launching her campaign last July, Atoosa has raised over $125,000 and been endorsed by leading reproductive rights advocates and organizations such as Congresswomen Jennifer Wexton and Jennifer McClellan; Senators Barbara Favola, Jennifer Boysko, and Ghazala Hashmi; EMILYs List, VoteProChoice, and the National Organization of Women – Virginia Chapter. When elected, she will be the only woman representing Loudoun County in the House of Delegates.
Atoosa will face Republican nominee and former Trump administration official Chris Harnisch in the November general election. With control of the House of Delegates at stake, Harnisch will be a dangerous rubber stamp for Governor Youngkin and MAGA Republicans who wish to outlaw abortion in Virginia and punish women and their doctors. Atoosa is prepared to stand up to fight for our values and the right to make our own medical decisions.
