When Glenn Youngkin won the Governor race in Virginia last year, it was considered to be quite the upset. But it proved that Republican and Conservative views were surging in the state.
Now, after the momentous Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, Gov. Youngkin is sticking to his promises: he will continue to uphold his Conservative values.
That’s Why He’s Pushing For A Pro-Life Ban That Most Right-Wing Voters Will Applaud.
Since the historic SCOTUS ruling, 13 states had trigger laws go into effect. This included Idaho, Wyoming, Texas, Kentucky, Arkansas, and North and South Dakota, among others.
These trigger laws essentially banned abortion after a certain period of time; some are stricter than others, but they all take a hard-nosed stance against abortion, which is exactly what many of their residents wanted.
Some of those trigger laws have since run into legal hurdles, but that won’t stop politicos like Youngkin pushing for new bans.
In this case, Virginia’s new leader wants to enact a ban other states have already pushed through: It Would Disallow Any Abortions After 15 Weeks.
Gov. Youngkin went on CBS News’ Face the Nation and spoke in detail about his position, calling it “a remarkable moment” as well as an “opportunity.”
Think about it, this was a state… that just 18 months ago was talking about enabling abortion all the way up through and including birth.
And now we’re able to talk about a 15-week pain threshold bill where a baby feels pain. This is a remarkable moment for us.
And it’s an opportunity, I’m not going to let go.
GOP Gov. Glenn Youngkin wouldn’t say if he would ever pursue a total ban on abortion, but has proposed a 15-week ban.
