2016 Virginia Latino/a Voter Poll

2016 Virginia Latino/a Voter Poll

The National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health (NLIRH) in conjunction with PerryUndem Research/Communication released new polling today which found a strong majority of Virginia Latino/a voters believe abortion should be legal, affordable and covered by health insurance, no matter the source of coverage.
 
The state-wide poll comes on the heels of recent decision by the Virginia Board of Health to scrap onerous building restrictions that required all abortion clinics to operate under the same regulations as outpatient surgical centers. The ruling follows the Supreme Court decision in Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt which struck down abortion clinic regulations in Texas. The poll also closely mirrors recent findings regarding attitudes nationally across racial and ethnic groups and reconfirms findings from a similar national poll NLIRH released earlier this year.
