Virginia Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin on Friday praised the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade and laid out his plan for abortions in the commonwealth to be banned after 15 weeks of pregnancy.
The governor told The Washington Post that he would like a 15-week ban on abortions, but conceded that a compromise of 20 weeks would likely have to happen given Virginia's divided Congress.
"Virginians do want fewer abortions as opposed to more abortions," Youngkin said Friday morning shortly after the Supreme Court's ruling was announced. "I am not someone who is going to jump in and try to push us apart … There is a place we can come together."
