On Tuesday, January 10, 2023 there will be special elections held for State Senate District 7 and House of Delegate Districts 24 and District 35. Special Elections typically have very low turn-out so making sure pro-life voters participate in these elections could mean the difference between victory or defeat.
State Senate District 7
Kevin Adams is the Pro-Life Candidate. According to his website he says: “I am pro-life. We need to pass laws that respect the rights of the mom and baby, limit late-term abortion by passing Glenn Youngkin’s 15-week legislation, while providing reasonable exceptions to protect the life of the mother or in the instance of rape or incest.”
Aaron Rouse is the Pro-Abortion Candidate. According to his website he says: “Fiercely protect the right to an abortion and defend against any attack on abortion rights.”
House of Delegates District 24
Ellen Campbell is the Pro-Life Candidate. According to her website she says “I am 100% pro-life and will oppose any radical attempts to expand abortion in our Commonwealth.”
Jade Harris is the Pro-Abortion Candidate. According to her website she will “protect reproductive choice.”
House of Delegates District 35
Monique Baroudi is the Pro-Life Candidate. According to her website she says “I have been a volunteer with Divine Mercy Care since 2006 and on their Board since 2018.” The Divine Mercy Care organization is committed to helping all women access medical care.
Holly Seibold is the Pro-Abortion Candidate. According to her website she says will be “…fighting for abortion access.”
Why Your Vote Matters
Both the State Senate and House of Delegates have narrow margins between Pro-Life and Pro-Abortion Legislators so each of these elections is very important.
Pro-Abortion forces want to add a Right-to-Abortion Amendment to the Virginia Constitution. This would remove any and all restrictions on abortion until the moment of birth. They only need a few more votes in the Virginia General Assembly to make this happen.
