Governor Glenn Youngkin Statement On Security After Supreme Court's Dobbs Ruling Announcement

 

RICHMOND, VA - Governor Glenn Youngkin released the following statement today on security after the Supreme Court's Dobbs ruling announcement:
 
"Today's ruling is a landmark decision for our country. While I understand that people across the nation have strong beliefs about this ruling, Virginians must always respect the rule of law and I appeal to their civility on this historic day. Our administration is committed to protecting individuals' constitutional rights and ensuring Virginians are safe. I am in regular contact with the Supreme Court Justices and my administration is in coordination with our mayors, and local and state police to ensure we are ready to take appropriate action if need be. Virginia will not stand for lawlessness or violence," said Governor Glenn Youngkin.
