Local representatives torn over SCOTUS decision

State representatives differ in their responses to the Supreme Court’s decision to reverse Roe V. Wade.

An email from Governor Glenn Youngkin reminded residents of his pro-life stance.

He announced that he will pursue a ban on most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy.

He claims to support abortion in cases of rape, incest, or if the child bearing parent’s life is at risk.

Senator Mark Warner stressed in his email that the decision’s removal of personal health care sets “back the clock on nearly 50 years of settled and reaffirmed law.”

Senator Warner also believes the decision could leave states the chance to attempt to restrict contraception.

West Virginia already has a law on the books that makes providing abortions a felony with up to 10 years in prison.
