Pro-Abortion Activists Chant ‘F*ck Joe Biden,’ ‘F*ck Glenn Youngkin’ - WATCH
The activists gathered to protest the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark decision
Pro-abortion protesters angrily chanted “F*ck Joe Biden” and “F*ck Glenn Youngkin,” in Richmond, Virginia, Friday evening.
The activists gathered to protest the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which overruled Roe v. Wade.
Even though Joe Biden’s governing agenda is overbearingly progressive, including supporting pro-abortion policies and calling it a “fundamental right," left wing protesters turned on him after Roe was overturned.

None of the Justices who presided in the Dobbs decision and dissent were appointed by Biden.
But six of the nine justices were confirmed to the Supreme Court when he was either a senator or vice president.

The protesters where also outraged at Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R), who announced that he is willing to sign legislation that would prohibit abortions in the state after 15 weeks.
As The Associated Press reported:
The Republican told The Washington Post he has asked four Republican lawmakers to draft the legislation.
He told the Post that although he favors banning most abortions after 15 weeks, a cutoff at 20 weeks might be necessary to build consensus in the divided Virginia legislature.
He reiterated his support for exceptions in cases of rape, incest or when the life of the mother is at risk.
Youngkin reaffirmed his position as a “pro-life governor” on Friday following the decision:
Youngkin, in another statement on Friday, confirmed that he was in contact with state and local law enforcement in lieu of potential violence following the decision.
“Virginia will not stand for lawlessness or violence,” the governor stated.
