Glenn Youngkin Dodges Questions on Abortion After Admitting He’s Hiding Anti-Choice Positions from Voters
This week at the Virginia FREE leadership luncheon, Glenn Youngkin dodged questions about abortion and expressed frustration that he was being asked about the issue despite urgent nationwide calls to protect women’s right to choose.
While Terry McAuliffe has repeatedly confirmed his support for reproductive rights, Youngkin avoids questions while funneling money to help elect Republicans who share his anti-abortion views.
Youngkin’s attempt to hide his extremist position is no surprise since he was caught on camera promising to go “on offense” to defund Planned Parenthood and ban abortions if elected governor, but admitted he’s hiding his unpopular views from voters to get elected.
Codifying Roe v. Wade into law has become a “huge motivator” in governor’s races, but Youngkin still won’t talk about abortion.
“Glenn Youngkin refuses to say where he stands on a woman’s right to choose because he knows he’s way out of the mainstream of most Virginians,” said DGA Communications Director David Turner. “However, his silence and his donations to anti-choice Republicans speak volumes. If he’s afraid to say what he thinks, why is he even running in the first place?”
