Delegate Hala Ayala, Democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor, released her plan to protect reproductive rights and expand access to care this afternoon. Her comprehensive plan comes as the Supreme Court announced that it would hear a case that it would hear a case about the constitutionality of Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban, directly challenging Roe v. Wade.
The fight for access to affordable, quality healthcare is personal to Ayala because when Hala’s son was born, her job at the time offered no health insurance. When her newborn son experienced health complications, Hala was able to get care through Medicaid -- and it saved his life. That is why she will always fight for access to affordable healthcare for all Virginians.
