Youngkin Uses State of the Commonwealth to Stump for Abortion Ban

RICHMOND, VA – On Wednesday, Governor Glenn Youngkin took to the floor of the Virginia House of Delegates to continue pushing his far-right ban on reproductive freedom in his State of the Commonwealth address. Ignoring the clarion call of Virginians from Tuesday night’s election of Senator-elect Aaron Rouse, Glenn Youngkin pushed ahead with his anti-choice agenda.

With an expanded majority in the Virginia Senate, Democrats are answering their mandate to lead the fight against Glenn Youngkin’s accelerated attempts to restrict access to women’s healthcare.

The Governor also used the occasion of the State of the Commonwealth to champion his personal 2024 presidential ambitions, ignoring opportunities to advance gun safety legislation in the wake of recent school shootings in the Commonwealth and instead focusing on attacking President Biden with his typical MAGA talking points.

In their rebuttal to the Governor’s address, State House and Senate Democrats unveiled their Vision for Virginia, promising to protect progress on kitchen table issues impacting Virginian families.
