VA reverses position on MS law, calls on Supreme Court to overturn Roe

Published On: 1/21/2022

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom General Counsel Kristen Waggoner regarding the state of Virginia’s decision to change its position at the U.S. Supreme Court from opposing Mississippi’s law protecting life to supporting it in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization:

“With Virginia’s decision to reverse its position to support the right of states to protect life, respect women, and preserve the integrity of the medical profession, a majority of U.S. states now say Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided, and that the Supreme Court should reverse its 1973 decision that has no basis in the history or text of the Constitution. We commend Virginia Attorney General Jason Miyares for standing with women and their children.”

Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization committed to protecting religious freedom, free speech, parental rights, and the sanctity of life.
