Virginia Wants To Defy God and Make Abortions “A Fundamental Right”

Back on November 7th, the state of Virginia voted to narrowly make both the House and Senate Democrat-controlled. Now pre-filing their proposal, they want to make reproductive rights something they think every woman should decide for herself.

“That every individual has the fundamental right to reproductive freedom. This right to make and effectuate one’s own decisions about all matters related to one’s pregnancy shall not be denied, burdened, or infringed upon unless justified by a compelling state interest and achieved by the least restrictive means that do not infringe an individual’s autonomous decision-making. A state interest is compelling only when it is to ensure the protection of the health of an individual seeking care, consistent with accepted clinical standards of practice and evidence-based medicine. The Commonwealth shall not discriminate in the protection or enforcement of this fundamental right.”

The proposal continues to claim that the state wouldn’t go after someone about a pregnancy in any way shape or form. In the way they are writing this, they want the state to be powerless to make any rules about abortions or the right to terminate.

A proposed constitutional amendment like this doesn’t need a Governor’s signature. It does, however, need to be passed in two different sessions over at least two years before it can be put to a public vote. Ultimately this means the earliest the people of Virginia could be voting on this measure is November 2026.

Currently, abortion is legal in Virginia until 26 weeks of gestation. Following that point it remains legal if there is a question of the life or health of the mother. Following the Roe v. Wade decision of 2022, Virginia is the southernmost state to not pass a stronger stance on abortion. This was incredibly evident during the 2022 midterm elections.

With both parties aiming for the window for an abortion, Republican Governor Glenn Youngkin has been pushing for a 15-week limit on abortions. According to experts, this is the point where the fetus can sense pain, and he argues that it’s unreasonable to torture the fetus before killing it.

Democrats meanwhile focused on their wins in 2022 and ensuring abortion was solidified as a right in their state going forward. Above all else, they wanted to guarantee the right to end life for women who can’t be responsible for their sexual proclivities. Through ads on October 17th, Democrats brought the topic up in 42% of their ads, compared to the three percent of Republican messages that discussed the issue.

Not alone in their quest, at least nine other states are preparing for the issue to be put to the voters in 2024. Pro-abortion organizations and activists are stepping up their efforts thanks to the staunch support of left-wing organizations like Planned Parenthood and the ACLU. These organizations are quick to open their wallets and encourage their members to support the leftist message of baby murder.

This push has made them fully successful across the board so far. In the 2022 special elections, Kansas tried to pass a ballot measure that said the state’s Constitution did not include the right to abortion. Failing significantly, they posed a staunch difference from California, Ohio, Michigan, and Vermont’s ways of voting for it to become a part of their Constitution. For their part, Montanans rejected the notion of giving rights to babies born alive following a failed abortion.

Ballot measures and changes to the Constitution like this are incredibly dangerous for us as conservatives, but also for the public in these states. Irreversible without another vote, they take precedence over any state-sponsored or lead initiative. Quite frankly, they are the final nail in the coffin for these unbaptized souls. If we want to save the righteousness, honor, and integrity of these babies, we need to ensure no more of these initiatives pass. Give the moral people some place to live without the Sodom and Gomorrah that these states are voting for.
