Some state Democrats want a special session to protect abortion rights (WVTF)

Stephen Farnsworth at the University of Mary Washington says Senators are hearing from activists about the need to take action on this issue now. “If you imagine that the Supreme Court ends up with a ruling that gives states more or less local option on abortion, which could come out of this case that they’re considering now,” Farnsworth explains. “Virginia is sort of in a vague area with respect to its own state abortion laws.”
