Lowering the Costs of Prescription Drugs
Shelly’s top priority in her first session as a Delegate was to protect the availability of quality healthcare and pass legislation to prohibit price gouging in prescription drugs. The Secretary of Health and Human Resources should be able to designate certain generic and off-patent drugs as essential to prevent unreasonable price increases.
Protecting Women’s Rights
A longtime member of Planned Parenthood and lifetime defender of women’s rights, Shelly will always fight for women’s reproductive health. She believes the government has no business interfering in a woman’s private medical decisions. Shelly knows every woman in Virginia must have access to cancer screenings, prenatal health, and family planning services. Our whole society suffers when women can’t get the reproductive healthcare services they need.
