The FFRF Action Fund is thrilled to announce the endorsement of Jeremy Rodden in his campaign for the Virginia House of Delegates in District 90. We believe that Rodden embodies secular principles, freedom of thought and the fundamental concept of the separation of state and church that are so vital to our democratic values.
Rodden demonstrates a commitment to science-based public policies, free from religious dogma. As a humanist, he stands proudly for women’s reproductive health care, believing that personal choice and individual autonomy come before the beliefs of any organized religion. He has spoken out against Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s proposal for a 15-week abortion ban, stating that “black-and white legislative limitations to appropriate health care puts patients at risk because their physicians have to worry more about legal implications of their medical decisions as opposed to providing the most appropriate health care for the patient in front of them.”
As Christian nationalism continues to threaten the principles of our education system and our democracy, it is more critical than ever before to have leaders like Rodden who stand firm in his support of secularism and the Constitution.
“We believe that Jeremy Rodden is the best choice for the House of Delegates in Virginia for District 90,” says FFRF Action Fund President Annie Laurie Gaylor. “We are proud to endorse his campaign and urge all District 90 voters who care about secular government, reproductive rights, and public education to vote for Rodden on Nov. 7.”
