Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America today celebrated the pro-life leadership of Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin after he proposed a budget amendment to stop taxpayer-funded abortion. The governor’s budget would restore a policy that mirrors the federal Hyde Amendment, which has saved more than 2.5 million lives.
Youngkin is keeping his promise to promote pro-life policies that protect the unborn and their mothers.
“We praise Governor Youngkin for keeping a key promise to pro-life voters and acting swiftly on the will of the people, who overwhelmingly reject abortion on demand. Abortion is not ‘family planning’ and Virginians’ hard-earned tax dollars should never be funneled to the abortion industry,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of SBA Pro-Life America. “Democrats used to claim abortion should be ‘safe, legal and rare.’ Now pro-abortion Democrats in states like Virginia and in D.C. increasingly push to expand abortion on demand until birth, paid for by taxpayers – and the U.S. abortion rate that had been declining for decades is rising again. Gov. Youngkin’s strong pro-life leadership at this crucial moment will save lives and the Assembly should adopt this budget amendment with bipartisan support.”
Last year, Women Speak Out Virginia – 2021 successfully ran a $1.4 million campaign to defeat McAuliffe and support Youngkin. The independent expenditure campaign included hard-hitting digital ads and voter contact mail to persuadable as well as pro-life voters who don’t consistently vote.
