Richmond, Va. (Newsradiowrva.com) - Governor Glenn Youngkin (R) has sent a letter to the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, asking them to increase security perimeters around the homes of three Supreme Court justices. There have been protests at the homes in reaction to the draft opinion which appears to show that Roe v. Wade will be overturned. Roe is the case that legalized abortion in the U.S.

Youngkin also says in the letter that the State Police are willing to help out. The protests have not been violent. There is state law in regards to "picketting" a home, but it references "before and about."

Republicans have also been pressuring Fairfax Commonwealth's Attorney Steve Descano to go after the protests. Descano is a self-described progressive prosecutor, and has been at odds with Republicans on a number of issues.
