Virginia’s Democrat gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe accepted an endorsement this week from NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia, a pro-abortion advocacy group that has called for defunding the police.

“I’m proud to be endorsed by @NARALVirginia,” McAuliffe said in a recent tweet. “With a right-wing Supreme Court ready to hack away at the right to choose and Glenn Youngkin promising to ban abortion, reproductive freedom is at stake in this race. I’ll always fight to protect the right to choose.” The former governor has publicly supported legislation that would legalize abortion up until the moment of birth.

While abortion remains NARAL Virginia’s primary cause, the organization has waded into additional political issues in recent years. Following the death of George Floyd last year and the protests and riots that followed, the advocacy group came out in favor of defunding the police in June 2020.

“ENOUGH IS ENOUGH,” it said. “Defund the police. Invest in Black communities. Tell Donald Trump to resign.”

The organization’s national arm, NARAL Pro-Choice America, has also repeatedly called for defunding law enforcement, claiming police have refused to deal with the “systemic racism” in their profession.

“It’s past time to defund the police,” the group said in April 2021. “After multiple failed attempts to change the culture of policing, it’s clear that police have not succeeded in reckoning with the generations of systemic racism, oppression, and state violence it has engaged in.”
