Today is a historic day in our country as the Supreme Court has finally overturned the horrendous Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey precedents and tossed them on the ash heap of history.
The Republican Party of Virginia released this statement:
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.

Last week, the Democrat majority in the Virginia Senate defeated a bill to prohibit your tax dollars from paying for abortion by one vote. The General Assembly elections in 2023 will be more critical than ever to make our Commonwealth pro-life.
