Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin said today that he will seek to ban most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy following the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Following the historical SCOTUS ruling, Youngkin asked four pro-life Republican Virginia legislators to craft legislation, and stated that a 20-week cutoff may be considered to deter partisanship among state lawmakers.
While most abortions would be outlawed in that given time frame, Youngkin noted that supports making exceptions for rape, incest and medical situations that pose risks to the mother’s life if the pregnancy were to go to term.
“Virginians do want fewer abortions as opposed to more abortions,” Youngkin said to reporters on Friday. “I am not someone who is going to jump in and try to push us apart … There is a place we can come together.”
The Virginia Governor seeks to make abortion illegal at the point when the unborn child is able to feel pain, similarly to laws recently passed in Mississippi and Florida.
“I also represent all Virginians,” he said. But, he added, “I believe the place we should be able to get to is a 15-week pain threshold.”

Virginia Senators Siobhan Dunnavant and Steve Newman, as well as state Delegates Kathy Byron and Margaret Ransone were requested by Youngkin to draw up the legislation.
“We’ve got a process in Virginia to work through,” Youngkin said. “I am a pro-life governor, I also am very, very aware of Virginia. … A governor can’t do it on his own. And it’s going to require … work across the aisle. And so we’ve got to work over the next few months to find a place that we can land.”
Youngkin also said that he aims to maintain order in Virginia as leftists throughout the state mobilize over their dissatisfaction with the SCOTUS ruling.
“We’re going to protect people’s rights to express dissatisfaction or support,” Youngkin said. “And so if people want to gather and protest or demonstrate, we’re going to protect that right today. And we are also going to protect property. We’re going to protect safety … We’re gonna have zero tolerance for infractions.”
45th President Donald Trump weighed in on the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and said the credit should go to God rather than man, Valiant News reported.
Today a conservative majority on the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in a 5-4 decision, with John Roberts offering a separate opinion that agreed with the premise of his conservative colleagues but would have stopped short of overturning the precedent, leading some to report it as a 6-3 decision.

The “politic” and “civic” debates surrounding the dissension of “justifiable abortion exceptions” proffered by abortion rights advocates notwithstanding… and, e.g., the health/ well-being of the mother, economics, genetic disability, rape, illegitimate sperm donors’ rights, illegitimate fathers’ rights, etcetera!… when abortion rights are asserted WITHOUT a justifiable exception, the question to be asked, is: WHAT determines whether a “non-exceptional fetus”/ “regular fetus” should remain on celestial Earth?
One important guide in determining whether a fetal abortion should be DISALLOWED for a NORMAL FETUS, is establishing whether semiosis/ meaning making (see, Semiotics/ biosemiosis) is measurable within the fetus… and if present, then establishing just how early this process begins. Nevertheless, as the onset of fetal semiosis will not be the same for all, then a real time metrology will be needed to establish a fetus’ “semiotic onset time frame” (see, https://bit.ly/37Uir6s, S.Q.U.I.D. technoma and the neurobiomagnetism of the brain’s Kvánto(n̲o̲ú̲)n̲e̲u̲r̲o̲n̲ō̲s̲epheren(e̲m̲b̲r̲y̲o̲)s̲e̲m̲i̲o̲(p̲o̲i̲é̲s̲i̲s̲) [i.e., quantum noúneuronly produced embryonic meaning making/ signal making/ sign making/ symbol making/ signing]… from the Greek words, κβάντοσις/ Kvánto, for quantum [see, https://bit.ly/3sy6PNB, Translations, and indivisible], νοῦς/ noús, for mental [a preferred term over “psycho”… see, https://bit.ly/3KHhLyv%5D, νεῦρονός/ neuronō͟s͟, for neuronly [see, https://bit.ly/3kJSsRC and https://bit.ly/3KSH6FR%5D, ἔφερεν/ epheren, for produced [generated], “brought forth” and bore [see, https://bit.ly/3vGYJ7d%5D, έμβρυο/ émvryo, for embryo and fetus [see, https://bit.ly/3LIVcuL%5D, σημεῖον/ sēm[e]îon, for “a sign, mark, token” [see, https://bit.ly/3MVjEcx%5D and ποίησις/ poiésis, for “a making” [see, https://bit.ly/37fkKAt%5D).
(Search: fetal response to music in the womb… note: Kvántonoúneuronōsepherenembryosemiopoiétic Individuation [see, https://bit.ly/3sgYe1g%5D… but, etc.)
Simply said, if semiosis is occurring, then an abortion cannot be permitted BEYOND the the onset of evidence of it’s̲ presence, as semiosis is evidence of the onset of rudimentary noesis! And YES!… Neuromathema is presently able to measure the Quantum Dynamics of this subtle process within the embryo! And so and thus, to abort the onset of a process that/ which is able to effect semiosis, is to interfere in the development of the “person” of the child… which, then, is to deny the Human Rights of the child! And, please note: afterupon the onset of semiosis, the process continues throughout one’s life, and is disabled through pathosis or death; and thusly, a pursuit of a “completion” of the process of semiosis within the fetus– specifically!– is a misguided approach to a scientific study of it’s̲ parameters and scope!
See, https://bit.ly/3kKO98H… https://bit.ly/3M40lxi… and, youtube.com/watch?v=WpYzLr4kAdM (paste URL into search bar of genmirror.com/ytp, only… start at 12:00)
To conclude, unless a law prohibiting abortion is based upon a determination of the onset of embryonic semiosis, that law is based upon an arbitrary premise, and is a law without an appreciation of the key embryonic components most essential to the PERSON of the individual’s ontology… and ditto for a SCOTUS DECISION on the issue!
The leak of the draft opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade, is not about Roe v. Wade… nor would it be about the subject matter of any issue before the courts!… IT IS ABOUT THE INTERFERENCE IN THE COURSE OF THE ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE! And it is similar to releasing a premature jury result, before a jury has reached a FINAL DETERMINATION. IT’S A FEDERAL OFFENSE!
A court… ANY COURT!… must be free from undue influence! And here, you have someone (for perceived– or, substantive!– polit[ic] gain, or for one economic!… and yikes, to the latter!) who has STOLEN an opinion of a lawfully established Federal Court; and therewith, DELIBERATELY– or inadvertently!– influencing the outcome of a decision before it has been ratified by the Justices of the court, and deliberately or inadvertently threatening the Life and Security of the Person of Americans!
To be honest– and to be frank!– if it was my “call” to make… and regardless of whether I had initially agreed to overturn Roe v. Wade!… I would quash the matter before the court, based on the breach of the courts sacrosanct prerequisite impartiality– and on that alone! For, simply, in a subsequent court challenge by abortion rights stakeholders citing the precedents against allowing such a breach, what court (and even this present SCOTUS court) would then deny such a challenge, based upon countless court precedents!? Which begs the question: Who– INDEED!– was behind this leak? A leak, that which warrants a significant penalty!
As for future SCOTUS decisions contesting this most recent Ruling, an argument in defense of the Life and Security of the Person of the mother (and e.g., the mother’s Health… and including, her Mental Health!) is both Constitutionally and UDHR supported– and regardless of a Constitutional provision, or UDHR Article, on Abortion!

“DemoRATS”?… what are you, a disturbed child of 7 in a senior’s body? GROW UP!

Almost all European Countries have a limit of 12 to 16 weeks. If a woman can not make up her mind by then she should also be sterilized so she does not do it again. IF the Father is known he should also be sterilized so he does not do it again. It is NOT up to us to pay for other people’s playtime.
Current Democrat rhetoric is all the more reason to remove as many of them as possible from Public Office. Their abortion ban lie is nothing more than an attempted coverup of their crime, inflation, CRT scam and no borders to name just a few.
