“Women today are coming to Virginia because they cannot get an abortion in Texas,” McAuliffe claimed. Speaking of Youngkin, the Democrat said, “He’s going to bring that here. Women’s lives are going to be put at risk. Doctors are going to be put in jail. … Women’s lives in danger. It will be crippling to our economy.”
McAuliffe also repeated claims about undercover video of Youngkin that a liberal activist released in July.
“He got caught on tape saying he would go on the offense, go on the offense to ban abortion and defund Planned Parenthood,” the Democrat said of his Republican opponent. “Every woman in this audience ought to pay attention to what I’m about to say,” McAuliffe said. “Now, with a Trump 6-3 Supreme Court, abortions are over in this country. This is no longer a talking point. The Texas law is law.”
