Republican Party of Virginia Statement on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization
Richmond, VA – June 24, 2022
Today, the Supreme Court of the United States took long overdue action to overturn Roe v. Wade and return the power to legislation on abortion to the states, where it rightfully belongs. In Virginia, we are proud to have a pro-life Governor, Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General who are committed to protecting the life of unborn children. We look forward to supporting the work of our leadership in the coming year that produces results for Virginians.
We also unequivocally condemn the violence and intimidation tactics being used against Supreme Court Justices and pro-life pregnancy centers, and call on Democrats to similarly denounce these acts. We stand with Governor Youngkin and Attorney General Miyares in taking action to protect the integrity of the judiciary, pro-life charities, and lawful businesses in our Commonwealth from violence at the hands of pro-abortion radicals.
