I am the pro-life generationPro-life activists in Virginia are questioning if their state leaders will defend the state against lawsuits. 

A group of abortion proponents and their allies have filed suit in federal court to overturn health regulations at abortion clinics, some of them on the books in Old Dominion for decades.

Olivia Turner, president of the Virginia Society for Human Life, tells OneNewsNow the most concerning part of the lawsuit is the attempt to overturn a law requiring a sonogram 24 hours before a woman takes her unborn baby's life.

"In the General Assembly this past year," she says, "there were literally four different bills that attempted to overturn the state's protective ultrasound law."

All of the bills failed, however, so abortion activists are trying to use the court system to gain what they couldn't get out of the General Assembly.

Asked if state leaders will defend the laws, Turner says it's "debatable" because Attorney General Mark Herring, she says, is a "radical pro-abortion agent" along with Governor Ralph Northam.

The lawsuit is based on the U.S. Supreme Court decision in 2013 that overturned parts of the Texas law that regulated abortion clinics.
